OVRP 9-7-14 NE Final Race

Down on power, but still fighting to maintain fourth place from my pre-final.

Session two with the Lucas Oil Ray chassis (Mazda power).  Some clean laps of the Sebring Club circuit.  A legendary track, and also legendary bumpy! ;)

Session three of the Lucas Oil Karting Shooutout at Sebring.  The brake bias on this chassis was off, but there is some action passing cars - and of course, taking the checkered flag at Sebring is always a thrill, even if it's a test session!

Canaan Motor Club, New Hampshire - Northeast Super Series Rounds 3 and 4

The track at Canaan, New Hampshite is really a car track, so for our karts it was a special challenge.  Absolute top speed was the goal here, but using the draft was also vital, as you can see in this video.  I'm passing for position here, but immediately come under threat because of the draft.  Our pace was equal to the pole sitter, but we ran so close that passing was difficult.  4th and 5th overall against local runners, and 3rd for NESS.

OVRP - July Practice Session for NESS

The track felt great that weekend, and I really love the new layout of OVRP 👌 ride on board a lap with me! I'm looking forward to rounds 3 and 4 of the Super Series at New Hampshire August 16th and 17th.
