Basically everyone would go out for a practice seesion, and then a qualifying session to get their best time. Then teams of 3 were made up (ie. first, last, middle ranked) for end of evening enduros. In the enduro each team mate would drive for 15 minutes and you could pick the order of your drivers. It was always fun and you got a decent amount of time for $40 or $50.
You'd need a decent number of people turning out for it to work though. The clincher in that series was the Targa entry offered as first prize (like the Summer Nights Rally series).

They have (or at least they used to have) eight karts set aside for leagues like this. They were kept in the back when the regular beer racing crowd was there and only brought out for leagues.

Maybe as group we can talk them into giving us "the good karts" since we all have a bit more motorsports experience than their Average Joe customers.

Anyone here is more than welcome to come out...like MCO, most of the chaps in the kart club are motorsports nerds so it's a good bunch of folks.
Come on out and let someone else handle the organzing
Last year was 25.00 per head, 5 laps + 50 laps, we had 3 groups, 7:00, 7:45, 8:30, 3 groups. This year I am hoping, Junior, senior, master.......The kart were rotated, so you never got the same kart which keeped things even, Chris did a fantastic job on keeping track of points and sponsorship and has offered to do the same this year.
