Karting
Sun 22nd Apr 2007
organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 19
 
[ show pre-run info ]

27 drivers made up 6 teams of four and one team of 3 for a 2 hour endurance karting event at Racing Karts in Livingston.  After being fully briefed on the meaning of the various flags and lights, we were let loose on to the track for a 15 minute familiarisation session.  Tactics started to form already, but many teams opted for the fair approach whereby each driver would get an equal amount of time on the track ..... others opted to drive until they dropped.

The 2 hour session started almost immediately after the 15 minute practice and it was straight down to business with the teams jostling for position right from the green light.  On the one hour mark the race stopped for refuelling and it was clear that team 2 was the main contender with a 40 second lead (2 laps) over its nearest rival.  However, with an hour still to go it could've been anyones ..........

As the time wore on, the drivers were becoming more and more competitive with a few choice words being uttered between a number of them. 

At the 2 hour mark Wesley took the chequered flag to win for team 2.  The final results table is below :

Huge thanks to Graham Bell and Douglas for organising an excellent afternoon session ..... one hopefully to be repeated in the not too distant future.

Hraeme, I'm glad you all enjoyed today. Unfortunately due to my current circumstances I could not have taken part. I couldn't have taken part anyway without a 3 lap headstart.

I'm a bit sore down my left hand side .... probably from the seat digging in when pulling 5g cornering ;-)

Anyone got photos? I'm working on a vid today!

feela as though I've been mugged and severly beaten, no way I am thanking anyone for the mess I'm in, waited till today to post message because I couldn't lift my arms up to the keyboard last night - feels very strange with all this pain but I can't stop smiling

23rd Apr 2007 12:36 :: redhot5

Many thanks to Graham for such a thrilling event, can't wait until the next time. Apologies to all for being so ragged in the corners I blame the massive lunch at the carvery.
