bike/kart demo race?

not sure if it has ever been done, or even if anyone was intrested in having it done, but a thought crossed my mind.. i know that thinking is dangerous, but , living dangerously is fun at my age...

I am always trying to think of ways to generate interest in TMGP racing and to get folks to come out and have a look at what we enjoy doing...
the TMGP races are held at kart tracks and i know that on practice days I wind up talking to kart guys who show up, i always enjoy watching what they do and i know that some of them have enjoyed watching us... we exchange questions about the others activities and several of the kart guys have told me that they came out a time or two to watch our racing...
I was wondering if they have ever done a cross day... days where maybe some of the kart guys came with their karts to a tmgp race day and at lunch time put on a demonstration kart race.... or if any TMGP guys have taken their bikes to a kart race day and maybe put on a mock race during one of their breaks... has it ever been done, or would anybody be interested in doing it? I do not want to approach Dennie and Jeff with it or the kart folks if nobody would be interested in participating... and the bikes need to be some of you fast guys, not a slow old like me.

I say there is a 10% chance of that happening.
