  • OT-My shop is going KARTING!

    Wow, what a surprise announcement at the San Antonio Sports Cars Christmas Party! A new karting track and a shop to sell & service karts & BMW motorcycles will be built off of IH 10 between Boerne and Kerrville. The land is already purchased and clearing has begun. The featured line will be Rotax karts with a two speed paddle shift transmission and 35 hp, the track layout will have a Nurburging-style bowl turn and a Suzuka type crossover. From what I heard a series sponsored by Red Bull runs the Rotax karts and we'll be involved in that.

    When our company website is revamped I'll put up the link.

    Now for the bad news, I'll be staying at the old shop with two other techs to continue servicing the European passenger cars, Land Rovers, and exotics. Oh well, needless to say track days will be plentiful. Maybe I'll get a kart of my own, at cost!

    Road racing to return to San Antonio with the Indy Racing League, and now a new, state of the art karting facility! Whoopeee!

    Just remember... Karting, like aerobatics... (according to Bob Hoover) is ALL about conservation of energy....
