Fred-practice is $35 a day and the track is open all the time. dicky Wilson is on site and Imwill be there all week.

David-they dis not repave the track. Estimates came in @$82,000 and the present owner, an investor, would not spring for it. We could not even get him to repair our control tower roof after the tornado that hit the property just after last years race. Took out trees and have the club house. Club house was covered by insurance since it is a separate owner for te track and a fellow racer.

My project as 2014 Georgia Sprint Kart Association, the sponsoring club, it to get track lights.

I did have highway 36 replaced from I75 all the way to the track..:dude: c

Should have put up detour signs and had them repave a special crooked section. $82,000 would have been a pretty good deal.

That is correct David. Most racers have asked for Sunday as a travel,day, with Thurs, Fri and Sat the official event days.

Thursday controlled practice
Friday controlled practice and the first heats
Friday eve the informal banquet
Sat am kart show with final heats following.

For some reason, I could not finish the post above.

The track is open 7 days a week. Anyone can run anytime they wish, including before the event starts on Thurs or afterward when it ends on Sunday.

I will be there early in the week and will not leave til the end of the event on Sat. c

Chip,

I don't know what's going on with the site, it said I had chosen to ignore your post so I had to click on another thread to view it. First of all I don't know how to ignore someone's posts, and secondly why would I ignore Dr. Chip?
Damn me know!

No problem. This has happened to me on other sites

BTW I am waiting on hearing from the WKA schedulers for Kershaw. I has been run the week after Barnesville, some years. The vintage enduro crowd is interested in running there, so we could have a Southern Winter Series. Trip south to Barnesville, over to akershaw for some, and back nawth..c

Chip, how far is the track from I-75? I drive under the I-75 overpass on my way to & from work everyday in Gainesville, Fl. Seems like from here it's almost a straight shot.

Alan-Barnesville City is 17 miles west of I-75. The track is 2-3 miles west of the City of Barnesville. Driving I-75 north, you might be able to get off at the Forsyth GA and save some time/distance. the Barnesville/Jackson, GA exit is 201. Forsyth is 199. Exit 200 (High Falls) would bring you across and into highway 36.

Alan, come to Barnesville and there will be a Track Master waiting for you! c

Ps-there is free camping on the grounds.

Chip, you know my love for enduro racing. BUT, I should be able to get my winter enduro fix at Daytona, run Barnesville, and pass on Kershaw. From there we'll see what my work schedule/funds hold in store. Haven't been to Barnesville since "77 (I think).

Alan...that's great. I mentioned Kershaw only for those interested, mainly those from northern OH.

BTW the event is very affordable. Camping at the track: we have showers and indoor plumbing now with a new club house. The Firehouse Gang offers home made meals with sandwich, drink, chips and home made cookies, $5.50. banquet Friday is all home made food.

Come to ""Home" to Barnesville and the will be a Track Master waiting for you!

Being a rookie, what exactly does this event include?  I'm making arrangements with an RV campground near Jupiter FL for spring training baseball the previous week and figure on returning home starting 3/26.  Travel plans include stopping at Barnesville for a "look/see."

Does this event include the vintage stuff?   Should I bring my newly acquired Fox, for some track exposure?  Or am I too much of a rookie, and not allowed on the track? 

Details please

Chuck

Chuck, This event is all Vintage karts. It is one of the bigger events and you certainly should bring your kart.There is lots of track time available and lots of help from the participants for a newbie.Check out the Vintage Karting Association web site for pictures from last year.
