Re: Tour de Kart - Event Info Thread

Jul 12, 2012

Hello all,

 

I know this thread has been kind of quiet since the forum upgrade.  I really do want to still do this event.

 

However, a few things have come up in my personal life such as having to deal with the fact that my son is moving away for most of the year.  It's the worst thing that's every happened to me and it's taking a huge amount of my time and energy to deal with.

 

But as I said, i REALLY want to try to still do this event.  in Fact, you could say I NEED to do this event.  It will really help with getting back to "normal" again, or help to find a new "normal" for me.

 

For the moment though, interest in this has dropped a little and i'm not quite ready to give it the attention it needs.  I think the forum change has kept people from posting as much, but I feel confident that will pick up again across all threads.  For the moment though, people are being a bit shy.  But that's okay.

 

So probably in a couple weeks I want to give this another BIG PUSH with stages and details all figured out and a definitive start date for the event.

 

Watch this space!

I hopefully will have my monitor by then and will be able to participate.  I did not want to commit until I could actually make the races, but in a couple of weeks I should be good.

 

Several of you ahve seen me drive karts at the GT Sats event fairly recently (sorry again Crow...  lol) so if anyone needs a teammate, I have a few who could vouch for me...  Couldn't keep up with exX, bt I did ok at tsukuba at least...

 

Hope all goes well, exX.  In everything.

thanks peeples... it means a lot to me.

 

in the meantime, you should all be watching the Tour de France at least a LITTLE to get some ideas of team tactics and you'll see some mroe about the format of this series in action.  much of it will work the same in our series.

 

I watch via NBCSPorts.com and I purchased the $29.99 all access streaming video which you can watch anytime, and if you're way behind (stage 12 of 21 is today) you can always start at the beginning and finish anytime before August 31st.  Not that I'm trying to sell anything.

 

Just be careful if you have your browser maximized it will show you spoilers.  I keep mine small enough not to show the panel on the right side.

 

As I watch I'm getting ideas of how to refine the format a little, so there will be some minor rule changes before we get started again...
