“open team endurance event (karting)”

Written on: 27/04/2013 by Phatboy177 (2 reviews written)

so we booked the open team endurance event after looking at the three sisters very snazzy website. confirmation sent through with hardly any details about the event layout just be there at 17:30 for the briefing. arrive at 17:00 to be greeted by a lovely woman asking us why we are there. great start eventually she was told what was going on just take a seat and wait till the other teams arrive. 18:15 briefing starts 45minutes late for 10mins you watch the safety video then head over to the pit lane lane for practice.
30mins practice
2hr endurance race

so we get to the pit lane first driver jumps in for his practice 1 lap complete the power just go on the kart and he is creeping round the track manages to get in the pit lane to be told it just needs to warm up by one of the marshalls and sent back out 2 mins later driver change kart cuts out in pit lane so we request another kart which was given however this one makes it to the end of the pit lane then promptly breaks down and wont start back up. so third kart now 15mins of practice gone and only 2 drivers been out for practice my turn out there to practice manage 1 lap then you guessed engine spluttering all power lossed mangaed to get to the pit lane for yet another kart change. 4th drivers turn now he jumps in the kart it cuts out the marshall pull the cord to start it which breaks in his hand so given another kart which now seems to be ok.

practice over time for the race starting from the back of the grid due to all the kart changes which we thought was not our fault but hey we continue anyway. so race starts and immediatly appaarent is we dont have a competitive kart it seems that the power output of some karts are very different our one just seemed to hold back and never gave full throttle going down the straightest part of the track racing another driver the same weight as me and he is pulling away very fast. unfortunatly that was the story of our whole race and we finished some 10 laps behind the leaders.

Three Sisters is proud to be referred to as 'The Jewel of the North' within the motorsport fraternity

i find this to be a rather ambious statement i think the track and the event it self could be so much more the pit lane has massive pot holes in it the track it self has patchy repairs all over the place.the screen you watch your lap times on is a very old 14'' telly organisation is the key and unfortunatly there was very little of it here.

so some thourough modernisation and newer karts better staff training and i would not hesitate to spend my money here till then i think i will look for better altenatives.
