Gokarting #2, 6/25 @ Umigo in Livermore

UPDATE: I've gone ahead and put down the deposit for the track, so please bring $12.50 (per person) when you get there. Since its a deposit for everybody, the same amount will be taken out of your final total when you pay (regardless if you need a license, college ID discount, etc.)

We are set-up to arrive at 8pm, non-license holders get to watch a training video, then we race. The group will be split into two run groups, which will be running the track every 15 mins (two 12 min runs with a 15 min break in between).

See you guys there!



As mentioned in a previous thread, let's go karting!

Where: Umigo 6538 Patterson Pass Rd Livermore CA
When: Tues. 6/25 at 8pm (arrive at 8pm, race at 8:30)

Pricing is set individually, so no group discounts . It will be "Traction Tuesday" so it won't be the slippy Umigo I'm used to, but should be more fun! They are also having "extended" sessions at 12 mins (vs. the regular 8 mins) for the same price (thanks @smmmurf)

My plan is that we do 2 extended (12 min) time trial sessions, but that is flexible, depending on what everybody wants to do when we get there.

If you have a helmet or a motorcycle helmet, bring it. If you don't have one, no worries, they have helmets there, but bring a head sock if you have one, they charge another $5 for a head sock.

Thanks to @finch1750 for the pricing (how did you find that? the website was a nightmare!)
Quote:
Just to clarify pricing for everyone (per Umigo Website)

Hot laps: $25 for the first, $15 for each additional
Membership $10 (headsock included)

If you are a college student (or just out of college and still have your ID to abuse), each session is only $15.
Note that the track can hold 10 drivers per race, so if we do go over, we will be breaking up the group to a couple of run groups. Also, groups of 10 or higher will require a 25% deposit to make the reservation, which I can cover if we have to, but please, if you do rsvp, make sure that you do show up (I'm not made out of money! )

I would like a good definite head count so we can solidify our reservation.

My plan is that we do 2 extended (12 min) time trial sessions, but that is flexible, depending on what everybody wants to do when we get there.

Pricing can range from $35-$55 total, depending on what we end up doing and if you have been there before (if its your first time there, there is a membership fee of $10 for the whole year). If you have a helmet or a motorcycle helmet, bring it. If you don't have one, no worries, they have helmets there, but bring a head sock if you have one, they charge another $5 for a head sock.

Last time I was there, Costco Livermore was selling $50 gift cards for ~$35 at at the location off of Airway Blvd about 3 exits away from Vasco Rd on 580. They've been doing this promo for a couple years now, I think. Good way to save a few bucks.

Put me on the list! Also since we're meeting up later, does anyone want to meet up beforehand and grab a bite to eat?

FYI, they also sell these at the Costco in San Ramon, for anyone close to there @MyRx. Always tempted to pick them up when I used to go there.

Damn.. so total will be $35 with license. Oh wells, hopefully this will be worth driving to livermore for. The track maps they have up on the site looks pretty nice as well as the amount of passing space.

Btw you misspelled my name on the list :P

IN. A bite to eat before or after sounds great. Coming from SB that Tuesday, I'll try to leave a lil earlier than typical. But...

...6/25 is just so far away

I'll try to recon Costco for those discounts. I see them only sometimes.
