7/15/12 : New track layouts
We have added some new sections to the track here at 61 Kartway. This being the case, we now have a shorter track for the Kid Karts. It was great to see them race on it last night, as we could see them racing the whole time which is comforting to the little racers family. With the shorter track it allows them to race side by side against one another more and and creates more passing opportunities as well. We also have a new section that we will use when we run the track in reverse, and it bypasses the "toilet bowl". Also, the rental karts will run on a new short track section as well. This new rental kart layout lets you see where everyone in your group is at all times. New aerial view coming soon.
7/15/12 : Flywheel Reminder

ARC 6619, ARC 6618, Raceseng Flywheels RSP-13-075 Rewheel NF- S1 & RSP-13-077 Rewheel F-S1 are the ONLY flywheels allowed. No other flywheels are allowed.
