Go-Karting at Phillip Island

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Bangr, Jun 6, 2006.

  1. I would like to get a feel for who would go to this , There is as some of you would know a scaled down version of the GP track at Phillip I sland , they run 9HP Go-Karts there , If say we were to do 2 x 30 minute runs each , a mini bus down there (up to 24 people) and if we can get it there is a house we can get for a great rate . It would be some were around the $200.00 per person .

    Who would come along ?

    And yes Stack Munkey will be driving the bus . :grin:

  16. Thank Flipper - yes I was looking at later in the year , The bus can be a 12 seater if some of you want to ride , but the idea was to be able to drink ect and make it a social weekend .

    I would not say you have to go on the bus , but I would prefer it if you made the effort to keep it as a group weekend , the bloody ride is boring as bat shit anyway .

    Will keep you all posted , getting some deals sent to me from phillip island and we will go from there

  17. What - before or after the karting?

    If you're staying on the Island, then it's only a short trip back to wherever it is that you'll be staying. So you won't be tonguing for a beer for that long...

    I personally would jump at the excuse to ride down, taking the long way, perhaps. If it were a day trip, then maybe a few beers on the way home on the bus might be OK.

  19. Sweet... let me know when its gonna happen... if its toward the end of the year i'll probably be up at the weekender anyway, so definitely no need for a spot on the bus or the rent-a-house for me.

    Is 9hp good for a go kart or what? I know nothing about go karts :cry: :cry:

    edit: is it only for netriders or are others welcome?
