Finally was able to get to the Pit and while I am sure I will return I was underwhelmed with the product. With the outside temperature in the mid-20's, indoors without the benefit of solar gain was probably around 20 if not below 20. Carts at speeds up to 45 MPH makes the wind chill somewhere around 0. Now had I known we would be racing in a drive-in freezer I would have been prepared as it is my hands should thaw in the spring. The employees were complaining about the cold too. Prior to going I had perused the website, watched the pre-race safety video and saw all the warnings that bumping would not be tolerated and yet one couple aggressively bumped their way around the entire course. I did not see them pass anyone or make any corners without hitting carts or side rails. Could be the employees were to cold to Marshall the course, but if I return and see this again I will call out not only the bad drivers but employees who allow it. If HVAC is out, fix it; non-existent install it, otherwise you will not see my money until May. At a minimum you need to warn people to bundle up for indoor carting.
I'm sorry you weren't aware of the temperature issue. We run gasoline powered racing karts and the fumes must be exhausted, therefore heating 75,000 square feet is not practical when you have huge fans sucking the fumes (and heat) out of the building. Although it is cold on the track, the temperature doesn't go below 40 degree. Granted, when you're flying around the track the wind chill will make it feel much colder.
There is no excuse for our staff not monitoring the race. They are trained to recognize deliberate contact vs. people who just can't drive. It's hard to tell sometimes, but they are told to err on the side of safety.
