MINI Cooper Meetups around the world take place on the first Saturday of every month. Seattle's next meetup is August 2, 2003 at 1:00 PM.

MEETUP: Lowe's Home Improvement Parking Lot, 2700 Rainier Avenue South, 1:00 PM.
Driving directions:
From I-5 or I-405, get on I-90 and take exit #3, Rainier Avenue South.
Drive south approximately 3/4 mile. Lowe's is on your left. You really can't miss it.

What we have planned for the day:
A scenic (albeit short) drive along the western shore of Lake Washington, southbound towards Renton...to Sykart!! Let's line those MINI's up in their parking lot, then head indoors for some competitive awesome indoor go-cart racing! See http://www.sykart.com . I think they have a cafeteria there, pizza and burgers sort of thing.

We hope to see you then!

About Sykart

Tired of the rain and the big city stress?

Come and experience the thrill of motor racing. It’s like nothing you ever done before, it’s fast, it’s fun, it’s competitive and an exciting new form of sport and entertainment with an authentic motor sports spin.

Our Kart and track is modern, fast, and safe. Whether you are a novice driver or a racing buddy of Jeff Gordon or Mario Andretti, our racing event is geared up to give you an adrenaline rush filled with so much fun that it is almost guaranteed to make you forget about the rain and the big city stress.

We at Sykart Indoor Racing Center offers exciting, wheel-to-wheel, professionally organized racing event for individuals, private parties and corporate groups. We provide helmets, racing suits, pre-race briefings, as well as a computer printout of race results for all participants.

What's the track like?
It's about 1/4 mile, the longest indoor track in the Northwest, with lots of interesting curves, hairpins, straight-aways and other features. The track surface is maintained for the greatest possible driving experience. The track sides are buffered to prevent accidents and provide a safe barrier. The course has several computer sensors to track the individual kart speeds, laps and averages.

What kind of go-karts do you have?
They're imported from Belgium, and are high-tech machines, powered by 5.5 hp and 9.0 hp 4-stroke Honda JB gasoline engines, that can reach speeds of 35+ MPH on the straight-aways. 4.0 hp karts are available for children. The karts are maintained on a daily schedule with our own in-house mechanics.
