LFS UK Karting Meet 2009

I'm so tired I can barely type. I had a work karting event today and barely made it after an evetful journey home. Nige got a puncture after a few miles and we discovered that his wheel nut spanner was missing. I managed to use brood's toothbrush to release the wheel, only to find that it was bald. A friendly RAC man and a quick trip to kwik fit followed (now I know why they are called "kwik" and not "quick" - we gave up and went home on the bald tyre). Just made it to the karting event which was only a fraction as enjoyable as yesterdays.

It was an amazing weekend though - loved every minute of it and it was great to meet some of you at last (it will be interesting to see the labeled photo as I didn't know the forum names of many of the people I spoke to.)

Thanks again Jason and SR for putting on such an fantastic event and for your generous hospitality. The amount of effort put into this was clear to see and the organisation was spot-on all weekend.

Sorry if any of that doesn't make sense my brain stopped working a while ago. Will post some photos tomorrow.

Finally I'm back home (pretty sure even Victor and Felpacerad got back home before I did) and despite the obvious aches and pains I really enjoyed the weekend.

First of all, big thanks to Jason, Mark and all SR members involved for organising the weekend, also kudos to Jason for allowing an untamed and potential crazed individuals to crash at his for a couple of nights.

Secondly it was great to meet with familiar faces from the last year, and new faces this year, and was great fun to chew the fat with all of you...although I think my patter in the early hours of the morning may have been sub par.

The racing was great, competitive and fair. Enjoyed the karts and the busy track, although after a while the arms were saying otherwise.

Obviously not everything goes to plan, and the weather I think caught a few out......I mean who would have thought we would be in danger of getting sun-burnt in Wales :schwitzalthough considering I'm Scottish and half ginger I was no 1 candidate for it yesterday)

Overall I had a great time, really enjoyed myself. The travel is a hassle but totally worth it and will look forward to next years event regardless of location.
Had a phone call from the Kart Centre, apparently some clothes have been left behind, and also someone left a rollmat in my house. If you think you have lost some clothing let me know. I will pick them up as soon as I can, and will post them to you if they are yours I will post photos of the clothes when I get them.

Also, do you have a read only url to give out?
