    K1 Speed Get Together, Seattle Edition

    I'll be in Seattle Dec 17-31 and would like to get some of the 818 builders/builders to be/wanna be builders together for some go karting at K1 speed. No solid plans yet, just wanted to give locals a heads up so we can find a day that works.

    I'll be around (day or night, except for the 19th/20th) as I'm just a 2 miles from this location, if you get bored then you can come over and give me a hand on my 818 or Challenge car (new engine install). Any parts you want to bring me I will gladly accept ! Also we can take a trip out to http://www.blackravenbrewing.com after K1 to unwind with some of the best beer in the NW

    I'd love to join if the time works. 17th all day works. 18th-20th works also except for evenings of the 18th and 19th.

    I'm only 3 miles south from K-1 but have never been. I believe I even have a gift card for it somewhere. I will spring for all if I can find it.

    - Jeff

    I'm traveling the 17th. The 19th my inlaws made plans for a weekend trip to Vancouver. So far it looks like the 18th during the day works best. If that doesn't work, likely some time after christmas would be open as well. Jeff, the offer is too kind.

    For those of you working, what time works best? it's my first full day in Seattle so early afternoonish might work best? I told my inlaws I have plans sometime that day and they pretty much said "ok".

    So there is a groupon for K1, 4 races, 2 licenses, 2 people for $44 http://www.groupon.com/deals/k1-spee...3451769_ap*1t1 (as there is also a %20 off until tomorrow so cost is $35). So if Jeff does not have a card or we need more races then this would be a deal to get.

    As far as time, anytime after 1PM is fine with me, I'm off just working on my race cars for a few days. My daughter may come also.

    Let's say the winner get a Turbo Heat Shield !

    I just found out yesterday that K1 opened a place in Indy! Too bad it's 40 mins away on the other side of town. Then again, maybe it's good it's 40 mins away so I don't go broke. I've been asking them for 4 years to come here! There's an Indy groupon, but it's not valid until after Jan 1. I didn't see that restriction on the one for Redmond. Nice!

    Let's shoot for 2:30pm on the 18th. Looks like they're closed for a private event from 12-2:30.

    http://www.k1speed.com/hours-pricing.html

    Cost:
    Annual license: $6
    14 Lap Race: $19.99
    Buy 2 get 1 free Mon-Thur

    I couldn't find any B1G1 coupons currently valid.

    Two options:

    1: Three races + license. Total cost is $46 + tax.
    2: Two races + t-shirt + license "k1 speedpass deal". Total cost is $49 + tax

    Preference?

    Which ever we do, top time of the day gets a Zero dB heatshield.

    I did a Lemans style 2 hour race yesterday in Indy on gas carts. My shoulders are super sore today after doing 89 laps.

    I'll be there too. Looking forward to meeting everyone and 'gracefully' losing some races.

    Unlike the other K1's I've been too, Seattle is a bit smaller so they separate the viewing area with glass and it's difficult to get decent photos. Managed to get a couple of photos though.

    What do you mean I didn't get first?
