Go-Karting with the Straight Eights
By Bill Teaney

For our February monthly club outing, the Straight Eights will be racing electric Go-Karts at Autobahn Indoor Speedway on Sunday, February 28, at 1:00 pm. Note that this is one of our Sunday events, which we are scheduling at the request of various members. A few months ago, Lou Vecchioni and I tried it out first, and it was truly exhilarating!

This approximately 70,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility in Howard County, MD, is completely indoors for perfect racing conditions every day. There are two Grand Prix-style tracks for two completely different racing experiences. Race these tracks with unique, high-speed electric Italian pro-karts. These F1 inspired karts reach speeds of up to 50 mph!

We will use the "Arrive and Drive" program that allows customers to arrive individually or in small groups and race. You can try just one race or take advantage "high value" multi-race packages. The package races you buy can be used anytime because they never expire.

All fees/costs are on your own!  We will attempt to negotiate a group rate. Even if you choose not to race, you may casually hang out with other club members and simply watch the races.

Please rsvp to by Thursday, February 25, if you plan to attend, so the club can have an idea of whom to expect at this event.
