Club News: Los Angeles Kart Club - Round 6 Report

The Los Angeles Kart Club held race #6 of their series July 25th at their home track, the CalSpeed Karting Center. Even halfway through the year LAKC's participation remains the strongest in the area of all of the regular series and clubs. This weekend's race saw the racers take on the NUEVO track configuration, a favorite among many of the regulars. Micheal Reehl was this months winner of a free entry as the official safety test winner. The only minor snafu all weekend long was a lack of transponders. Sure enough the transponders never made it to the event so LAKC kicked it old school with pea pick and hand scoring. A little change of pace to shake things up never hurts and it is always good for the young drivers to know how we rolled back in the day. The membership really enjoyed the modified race format even if it was unintentional.

LAKC Race #6 by the numbers:
133 entries
32 laps of racing action per class
3 red flags – no serious injuries at the time
2 fence poles bent over
1 destroyed CRG
100% having a great time rain or shine

As always the driver's meeting kicked things off. LAKC members Jake Craig, Colton Herta and Hudson Morrow all received recognition for their IKF 2 Cycle Grand National Duffy wins. It is always nice to be honored by your peers and even nicer to know you are racing against some of the best drivers in karting at your local LAKC race.

During the drivers meeting racers were informed on the new surprise race format for the event, two 8-lap heat races and one 16-lap main event. The computer would pea pick the first race and the order would be inverted for heat number two. Heat one kicked started by 10:30 and saw a regular shuffling of positions as the ebb and flow of the racers sorted things out. With the mixture of fast and slow all running throughout the field we did see a few minor incidents and drive overs, but we also saw a lot of passing. Heat two's low light was the unfortunate karter vs. fence middleweight championship fight. Always bet on the fence. Jesse Hauman took out 30 feet of fence wile “warming his tiresâ€
