First of all, thank you to the organizers. I had a good learning experience racing with all of you and the event management is awesome. I see that some steps have been taken to improve on last year's event mishaps and it shows that My-Kart cares about the quality of its race events.

So again, kudos!

Claw Racing Team 1 & 2 had an amazing race. We are glad to see that we have improved somewhat. Team 1 had a mishap with the kart (difficult to build up the revs). I have raced with these karts before and quite familiar with the throttle, but our kart was really stubborn on the rev department hence the slow start - dropped to almost last position due to this. Also, something is definitely wrong with the brakes; during the race I felt like I had to start braking like 1km from the corner! Huge braking distance but adaptability is part of the game I guess. Somehow managed to climbed back to 11th place so I am quite happy with that.

Team 2 had an uneventful race so to speak. Good pace and great strategy prevailed when Team 2 climbed up the grid to secure 4th place in the end. There was an issue with the fuel but I believe it was rectified during one of the stops and didn't lose position so all good.

We are looking forward to the team series next year and we are working on our driver line ups. We expect the same 2 CRT teams to join but we will see. Now we are just waiting for the rules & regulations for next year's team series. We will continue our attempt to stay as the underdog team :P

Lastly, forza My-Kart!

p/s: BTW, to all the other drivers, your on-track driving attitude is amazing! I can clearly see that safety was on everyone's mind and am glad to have raced with all of you!
