Dot Com Go Karting with Neverblue Ads

The boys and girls from Neverblue Ads were in town and I figured what better way to welcome them to Vancouver than with a little Dot Com Go kart racing. Ever since my go karting adventures with Unique Blog Designs in Seattle, I’ve been meaning to get the dot com crew together to do some karting at home.

We headed to TBC Indoor Racing in Richmond at around 2PM. Going at that time meant we had the place all to ourselves since everyone else was working – that’s the advantage of living the Dot Com Lifestyle. After signing the waiver and trying on that stupid head sock, we had a good laugh at Samantha and Leanne from Neverblue Ads because they forgot to wear proper driving shoes and had to wear leftover shoes from TBC.

The racing was a total blast and everyone had a great time. However, the event ended on a sour note because Leo Chiang was still in go kart racing mode when he got back to his car. Watch the video to see what happen to his beloved Mustang.

        Happens a lot. Taking my GSX-R1000 to the track has terrible effect on my street driving. I suppose I should leave street altogether and just focus on driving on track.

            Well Cam, because it is good for the trees? Am I right? Maybe I should get myself a scooter, harder to kill oneself with those babies.

  2. LOL. Last time I went to that place, I remember driving on the street afterwords and having the urge to drive fast and bump people.

    Looks like whoever was driving the Mustang had the same urge. 🙂

      Its the bumping that’s my problem. I’m fortunate or unfortunate enough to have a more simple car so I’m less likely to break it unless I decide to be foolish after the fun of karting.

      That is a little ironic, isn’t it? Then again, this would encourage Neverblue to give John some promotional clothing too. John is all about being a walking billboard.

        John should have one of those next generation smart outfits that can adjust to weather conditions. New feature should be to change marketing slogans on a flexible OLED screen that would cover the back of the jacket etc.

  8. I remember going to a go kart track here in Palm Bay FL and afterwards it was pretty difficult to drive. I had the urge to take a wide line when turning a corner and also bump care s that were in my way. Luckily I didn’t spin out though. Bummer about the GT.

  9. Looks like a great time John. Its hard not to speed after going karting and probably the reason I usually cab it there and back or have a friend drive. Cannot afford anymore speeding tickets lol.

    Btw, John, whats the cost to fix the stang?

    [email protected]’s last blog post: Credit Concerns Drag Markets Lower Wednesday

    1. John Chow says:

      Not sure. But it will need a new rear axle, disk brake, body kit repair and two new wheels. The front wheel got damage too. I say it’s at least $3,000.

      1. That was a pretty expensive afternoon.

  13. Mike says:

    The track looked way too small with little passing opportunities and underpowered karts. Go outdoors next time.

    Classic on the mustang… typical spin out.

    1. John Chow says:

      There is an outdoor track in Richmond but the carts aren’t any faster. The F440 karts in Tsawwassend are pretty quick however. We may go there next time.

  14. That looks great fun, shame about the Mustang though but at least no body was hurt. Well except in the pocket.

    Since you live in Richmond, I’m surprised you’ve never heard of TBC. It’s a pretty cool place. I’ve heard that the enduro races on Thursdays (?) can be a lot of fun, but I’ve never tried that. The most I’ve done is about three consecutive 7-8 minute heats. What sort of lap times were you guys pulling in?

    On a side note, you gotta love/hate those crazy Richmond drivers. Of course Ed had to crash into the wall… but I guess that’s better than Leo’s crashing into the curb. I know that each time I go, driving a “real” car afterward can feel awfully surreal. The steering wheel on a real car feels so much looser after the stiffness of a go-kart.

    1. John Chow says:

      The best I did was 33 seconds for a lap. Stephen, Leo and Ed were taking bets on whether you would crash or flip the go kart. The overwhelming conclusion was YES!

      1. Stephen says:

        Well, the Kart does have four wheels. He only has issues with 2 or fewer.
