Well, it's that time of the month again guys.
Last month brought us our best event yet (take a look at the arial photos). By around 10:30, we had the Motorplex property jamed packed with over 450 cars.
The weather was perfect and we go some great shots from the helicopter.
Keeping with tradition, this month we have a very special event planned after the C&C.

, along with our Host the Minneapolis AutoMortorplex (Thanks Bruno) and Tyler and I have put together a great package ($120+ Value) for the first 36 people who sign up. (This event will be limited to 36 people so that we can all get enough track time).
We will be leaving the Motorplex property at 11am sharp and caravaning out to Stockholm.
Here are the details:
Please join us at the First Annual Cars and Cafe Grand Prix, held on Saturday, September 5th from 1pm-4pm, at Stockholm Motorsports Park, in Cokato, MN. The 14 turn road course (see attached map) is 0.7 miles long and has some nice elevation changes as well.
Let's finish off the summer with some driving on a nice track.
The cost will be $55/driver.
Up to 36 participants. (As of 8/19/09 we have 10 spots already taken, 26 to go)
Drivers will be weighed and their karts will be weighted down so there is no weight advantage/disadvantage.
Drivers will initially be randomly divided into 3 groups of 12. After qualifying, the fastest third will be in group 1, next third in group 2, and bottom third will be in group 3 so everyone can race against drivers of similar ability.
Helmets and driving suits will be provided.
Will be run rain or shine.
