Any interest in meeting up for an hour or so at the Miramar Speedway?

I'm going to San Diego for 3-day training next week.
Will have Tue. and Wed. evenings at my disposal.
Any suggestions on where to go? Kart sounds like fun.

I would be interested Randy, if just to meet the kind S.D. folks. The karting will be an added benefit. Unfortunatley, I don't think many people check this part of the forums. Perhaps you could put it in the main "Elise discussion" folder temporarily and then move it once we get it going.

Yes! My class ends at 4pm. I'm at 10145 Pacific heights Blvd
whic I guess is very close to the track.
the only problem, I don't have driving shoes. My sandals may not be apropriate race footgear ;-)

No sandles! You need closed toe shoes. Do you have some? If not, what size are you?

Andrew, can you make it?

Duct tape!

We can see if we can figure something out. I am size 8, so that is probably too much of a squeeze. I know they have shoes there, but I am guessing you are not into shoe shopping.

If they have nice shoes for reasonable price I'd buy.
I've wanted to get some light driving shoes for a while now.

The ones I use for autoX ($20 nike bought online) are too heavy with stiff sole.

If we're out of there by 7:30, yeah, I can make it. Wish I had known earlier. I would have brought my helmet to work.

Sitting in my office, coding with a full-face helmet on. That would be funny.

The plus is that they have very nice new helmets. :)

We have to be out of there by 7:30, so see you there.

Not bad for last minute. We had 5 people show up. Including one that had raced at this place a lot. I took second place. Apkom found shoes on the way over so he was good to go.

Check out this video from our track day a month ago at Moran Raceway in Los Angeles. 2.5megs

lol :)


There was not that many karts out there so they did not separate us into shifter/non-shifter sessions.
