    I think its time to hang up my helmet and let my son start, he is 7 not sure where to begin and advice. Like where to find rules for kids this age, how much should i expect to pay for a kart and how much does it cost to run a season. Thanks Terry

    Here's what you might want to do, Go to www.slka.net and regester on there forum page and post the same question there. on there web site you can also see the date of there next club meeting (Tuesday Nov. 11 2008 @ O'Charlies on Lindbergh just north of Hwy 44 @ 7PM) Just look for a big group of people in the back. Someone there can hook you up with who to talk to. Kent

    No just show up, We are all family (for the most part) Everyone there will gladly help you out. They will be talking about new club officers and up comming events for the track. I myself have crazy work hours so I might not be there. Look forward to meeting you some day. Heres another idea, you will need to pay the door fee but you and your family are welcome to come to the awards banquet coming up in Dec. There you can talk to most if not all the kid karters and there mom's and Dad's. Go to there web site for all the info. Any thing you might need feel free to pm or e-mail me or just post it and I will do all I can to help you out.

    I have been trying to get a kid kart for Bryan's little brother James, He's 6 now but it's hard at my income to aford 2 racers but since you might get yours in a kart I might try harder to get James in one. Or maybe there little sis Laurn. Anyway see ya soon. Anything you need just ask.

    The clone class is also allowing seven to 12 year olds. lots cheaper than kid karts.
