2013 my-kart event calendar

Submitted by TheFazz on Mon, 17 Dec 2012 - 21:24

the 2013 public holiday and school holiday calendar are available at the following link: http://www.onestopmalaysia.com/holidays-2013.html

We need to quickly finalise the 2013 my-kart calendar covering the TEAMS series (more info on TEAMS series), and any other one off events. Unlike previous years, we will not have any DRIVERS series for 2013 (see story). please see my post on the topic of fixing calendars in advance and not changing it during the year: http://club.my-kart.org/node/3452

general guidelines

  1. TEAMS series proposed on last saturday of the second month in the quarter; unless the following:
  2. avoid clashes with major public holidays like CNY, HariRaya etc
  3. avoid clashes with major motorsports events like F1, MotoGP, MME etc
  4. avoid clashing with long weekends / school holiday weekends (when people usually have weddings to attend and outstation trips)
  5. avoid official racing events during ramadhan and about two weeks after raya
  6. try to avoid clashing with other karting events that my-kart drivers may participate in

TEAMS series calendar

i have not yet booked the times with CityKarting, nor have i posted the individual appointments for the 2013 calendar ('edit' and 'clone'), but for your information, these are the dates i would propose 5 rounds inclusive the Grand Finale:

F1: 22nd - 24th March

I need help on the calendars for the following events:

  • MME
  • Sepang 1000km
  • Any karting events at Citykarting

all TEAMS series event days are saturday morning from 0800hrs to 1200hrs at Citykarting Shah Alam (unless otherwise informed).

your help & collaboration needed

pls help collaborate to improve this calendar so we have a robust plan for 2013 and to avoid any further changes to our calendar.

Feel free to also update the google calendar (search for my-kart by fazz).

also start planning your 2013 calendars.

Forum topics

Fazz - thanks for the first cut.

My thoughts:
- Teams #1 (23-Feb) - may be a bit close to post-CNY. Some ppl might still be travelling back from long leave. Perhaps consider moving to 2-Mar instead?
- Teams #3 (31-Aug) -> I have a funny feeling that MMER might actually be on Merdeka Day next year (because this will be the first time in years that Merdeka weekend is not during Ramadan or Hari Raya)! Might be safer to move it too 7-Sep? But that's the start of school holidays..

you are correct. good points. will shift as suggested.

also - would others prefer saturday or sunday for the race day?

SGT should be on either of these dates (pending agreement & FIA approval):

JUNE: 8-9 or 15-16

I am a Saturday night or Sunday driver... coz working

[quote=edwynlow]I am a Saturday night or Sunday driver... coz working[/quote]

how about a mixture of saturday and sunday mornings?

agree - we shall have a night race too.

Personally I will be working on Saturdays starting now, therefore races on Sunday will be fine with me.
Since it is bi-monthly race, therefore sacrificing 1 Sunday every 2 months is acceptable.

any suggestions which rounds we should have on Sundays and which ones on Saturday nights?

[quote=TheFazz]any suggestions which rounds we should have on Sundays and which ones on Saturday nights?[/quote]

Would suggest night race for either rd2 or 3 as it normally very hot during the day at that time of the year and should be dry too.

sure we can change. that is why we do this the collaborative (open sourced) way. ;)

don't want to clash with RMC. so please propose alternative dates.

Night races will have to be held at Sepang. And if we want to bring the 100s to Sepang, I would suggest night races to be held close to the end of the season. Then we can some mixtures of Saturday (Morning, Evening) and Sunday (Morning) races.

My suggestion are:
Round 1: Sunday (Morning) / Shah Alam
Round 2: Saturday (Morning) / Shah Alam
Round 3: Sunday (Morning) / Shah Alam
Round 4: Saturday (Night) / Sepang
Round 5 or Grand Finale: Saturday (Night) / Sepang

good suggestions... making some changes now...

i'm fine with either saturday or sunday. since most of us are fine with both saturday and sunday as well, maybe we can make it on sunday to help those who can't attend saturday races. ie : sifoo Patrick and Edwyn ;)

Anyway, here's some info about RMC races. I don't know how many drivers from mykart are going to join RMC. But, if you would like to know their 2013 calendar, this is what it's going to be :

Rotax Invitational Malaysia Jan 19 – Jan 20
Rd.1 RMC Malaysia/Asia Mar 2 – Mar 3
Rd.2 RMC Malaysia/Asia Apr 6 – Apr 7
Rd.3 RMC Malaysia/Asia May 18 – May 19
Rd.4 RMC Malaysia/Asia Jun 22 – Jun 23
Rotax Invitational Thailand Jul 20– Jul 21
Rd.5 RMC Malaysia/Asia Aug 24 – Aug 25
Rd.6 RMC Malaysia/Asia Sep 28 – Sep 29

...this time kacau daun have no excuse not to participate

[quote=naza]...this time kacau daun have no excuse not to participate[/quote]

Sadly Kacau Daun won't be around for round 1 but Novice United (TP-Luen) should be there.

Btw, trying to recall the way to the place that I went to mandi bunga way back in 2006. Shouldn't be more than 30 minutes away from where I'm working at now. ;p

The MSS timetable:

ROUND DATES
1... 22nd - 24th March (F1 Support Race)

2... 24th - 26th May

3... 28th - 30th June

4... 13th - 15th September

5... 1st - 3rd November

....don't see any clashes with my-kart's dates.

thanks for this, bro. :up:

dear my-karters,

it looks like the calendar is as good as ready to be confirmed. we have taken into account the major events including RMC, MMER and MSS and avoid clashing with any of them.

quite possibly, i would like to move the round 02 to June from current May slot. But this depends on when the Super GT race is confirmed. By having round 02 in June, we create an acceptable 3 month interval from round 01 in March, and shorten the "holiday" gap to round 03 to 3 months instead of the current 4 months.

I am leaving this calendar open to further feedback for 2 weeks before i confirm with City Karting. For your information, I have already given the calendar to City Karting as a heads up for them to block our times accordingly.

cheers!
forza my-kart!

race on sunday eh *for round 1 n 3* ? alternate change on race days.. mcm menarik ni.. need to come early and beat the traffic as got car boot sale every sunday as shah alam stadium car park..

2 weeks ago, i posted the above calendar after obtaining various feedback and updates on motorsports event dates that should not clash with the my-kart TEAMS calendar.

i have not received any other feedback in 2 weeks so i shall now confirm the calendar.

i will be soon posting the event appointments on this website.

so start forming your TEAMS!!
