On Saturdays in the fall and spring, Calf Pasture Beach is home to the Norwalk Karting Association -- the stillness of the shore, drowned out by speed, as the parking lot becomes a racetrack.

"This is our 51st year. We go from 5 years old to whatever age," said Norwalk Karting President Tom Donahue. "We've got nine people that have started here and are up in the NASCAR race circuit now." 

"For some people, this is as good as it gets," said member Hugh Gorman, pointing to himself.

Hugh is one of the older drivers at age 63.

"I absolutely love go-kart racing--yes!" he told News 12 with a smile.

Hugh started about eight years ago after life got off course. His brother died from cancer in 2012.
