TMGP- katy still doing it?

I just read a bunch of old posts and this sounded like it was a whole bunch of fun...
are they still doing this?
What would be a good bike to buy to set up and run out there?
Keep in mind that I am a 6' tall 215lb old man...

Rob and a few others should be able to provide some good info on this one.


Keep in mind the G in TMGP does not stand for geriatric.





I do think an XR100 on 16s or 17s would fit you well. Deano, I think, has one he runs and he's a stocky fellow.

Looks like the biggest 2 stroke allowed is 85cc.

Do you have to be racing to ride there? Or can a membership allow you just to ride for fun on a regular basis? I want to be able to take the CRF 150F out there to supplement my time between track days.

Members are free to ride as long as there isn't a scheduled event as far as I remember. I plan on signing up soon to take advantage of cool and sunny days to come.

Members means members of Gulf Coast Karters, GCKI I think. $300 a year. The only bikes allowed on the track are F5, F6 and F7 CMRA rules. Nothing really over 170cc four stroke or 85cc two stroke.

Oh yeah, if you wanna race and be fast, try watching races to see what the fast guys run. KX65's or modified KLX110's in F5, KX60 / 65, NSR 50/65 or KLX 110 in F6, basically anything you can get your hands on to run F7, with the cheapest and easiest being a XR100 to run against the other XR100's or a mostly stock NSR50 or NSF100.

Rules for classes are identical to CMRA, rules posted here http://www.cmraracing.com/pdf/2011/R...book_Cover.pdf

katy track is 325 for the first year and 300 every year after that.. good deal if you leave close and can go often, you can go anytime you want from sunrise to sunset as long as there no events going on. Best time is during the week
http://www.racekarts.com/About-GCKI/membership.html

as far as bikes.....Im partical to the klx110 but the xr/crf100 is a great platfrom aswell as the kx/rm65, you also have the gp chassis like nsr50, ysr50 an nsf100

cheap and easiest is the xr/crf100 or kx/rm65

I just went and looked at the pictures....this looks like a blast!

I'd assume that a lot of the skills learned here have a direct relation to big bikes, no?

In my experience, it was a big help learning minis.
