Indoor Kart Racing 1/27

WRAPUP: We had 21 racers attemding this year, down a few due to weather… Several new faces, and many regulars.   Lots of close racing action on the challenging new track layout.  I’m sure everyone was good and tired after 4 heats of racing.  Afterwards we hung out and enjoyed a giant pizza + drinks..  Thanks to our friends at Melrose Park Indoor Grand Prix for taking good care of our club!

Fast lady of the day went to Anne C. at 34.252

Fast guy was Martin M. at 32.134, winner of the Speed Racer helmet
