When Mr. G. was still working and made computer programs, one of his clients was the Brussels Kart at Brussels - Dilbeek.  The karting track is very big and runs inside and outside.

There is a very nice restaurant, serving a sophisticated Franco-Belgian cuisine.

Brussels Kart provides all facilities for fairs, shows and exhibitions. It is also the place to be for the organisation of events and meetings. But also for family parties, communions and weddings.

They even organise helicopter maiden flights.

We went there with a friend and her two grandchildren a boy of 13 and a girl of 20. The boy was normally too young the minimum age is 15, but with Mr. G.'s presence they made an exception. The kids were delighted !

After having bought the tickets, the two got dressed while Mr. G. had found some old colleagues and chatted with them. Of course most of the persons who worked with him were also retired and not many left to greet !

Finally they were all perfectly dressed up and waited for their turn.

Meanwhile I took pictures of the racetrack

They climbed in the cars and listened to the explanations and then off they went. The racetrack was indoors but also outdoors.

I waited outdoors to take pictures of them, but they were so quick that I didn't know who was who and I hadn't there car numbers.

After half an hour the adventure was over and they both were so happy ! We had a drink outside the restaurant before we returned home !

What a fun experience for the 20 and 13 year old. Next time you can try driving one of the cars/karts.

I went karting once. I couldn't move my arms for a week afterwards! Great fun though...

What fun for the young people ... I recognize the pretty girl from an earlier post! No wonder "Mr G" is so good with computers ... I didn't realize what he had done back in his "former life.

Oh what fun. My son would love to do that.

What fun for those young people. They'll never forget the day, and they'll probably never forget you.
