Default I need a place to ride my go kart

I live in florida and im about to finish adding susspension to my 200cc dirtbike powered go kart. I live near the tampa area and i cant find a track that i can bring my own kart to. I hope i can find a track so i dont have to risk it on empty roads.

Empty parking lots , stores that are closed on sundays. Empty parking lots could also include the BACK parking lots of schools.....

I would really like a track i could bring it to. I want to be able to go crazy with it and not worry about getting tickets or getting creamed by a car.

At best.. find a closed industrial parking lot with a toll bar (what's the correct term?? IDK)
So you are most likely the only "vehicle" moving around at that time.

if you do decide to go out there some time pm me for my # and you can park your car or truck over at my brothers house so you don't have to leave your vehicle out in the open. i had my trailer hitch stole off my truck one time and want do that again. he lives about 5 min away from there so you can ride your kart from hes place to out there. im shore he don't care cus he's got a empty lot next door to hem where i park

Im made the front so you can lower it for track use and raise it for off road use even tho some people say you have to pick one or the other, im gonna get the best of both worlds.
