Advice for Gulf Coast Kartway membership

I am considering joining Gulf Coast Kartway as a member so I can practice on my mini motard for TMGP. It would also help for tuning purposes. My question is, are the kart guys gonna get annoyed with having to share track time with a bike if I go out there? Also, someone mentioned bringing a guest on one of the threads, does anyone know if that's still a thing? Got some buddies that may be interest in TMGP, but it would be cool if they could try out riding the track a little bit to see if they like it first.
Is there any other general advice anyone could give about joining GCK as a member?
Thanks

Most of the kart guys are okay with sharing track time but there are some that hate us being out there. So just be respectful to them regardless

You can bring out 1 guest per membership as long as there riding the members bike

Being a member of the track is hands down the cheapest track time you can get! There are several of us that have memberships, always a good idea not to go alone for safety reasons

Ok, awesome. Is it pretty busy with karts out there most weekends, or will I see some bikes pretty often?
When I've done member days at MSRH as a guest, they switch every 30 mins between bikes and cars. Is that kinda how it works at GCK?
I plan to bring someone with me when I go out there for safety reasons.

Its best to go out during the week, weekends you have more of a chance of having a lot of karters. I wouldn't even attempt to go thru/fri leading up to a kart race weekend best to check the schedule before you head out there.

Karters tend to work on there karts more than ride, so they randomly pop on and off the track.

^^THIS^^

The karters rotate sessions for kids and adults or something like that so on the weekend they'll be riding for two thirds of the hour. I've also found that weekday afternoons are the best times to ride out there.

If you do decide to get a memebership, post up here when you plan on going. It's always more fun(and safer) with more than one person riding and you can coordinate with other members to go along.
