Sanzaru Games Reaches Mid-Point of Season with Race Five
Molecule Micro Max to be the GoPro Feature class
Race #5 on July 23 & 24 will mark the mid-point of the 2016 Sanzaru Games season, 4 races complete and 4 more races after Race #5 to run. The 2016 season has been so far a strong season for competitive racing, especially in the Rotax classes. This race will run on the tough and tight Reverse Sprint configuration with the GoPro feature class being Micro Max. Also at the mid-point of the racing season, the Sanzaru Series is the largest region in the country.
Micro Max has had strong entry numbers all season with over 10 karts per race. Two veteran drivers, Sebastiaan Mulder and Christian Legaspi, have been leading the pack in the early part of the season, with but Skyler Geczi, Ryan Persing and Adam Freire having been close to make it a good five kart battle up front. The Reverse Sprint configuration will make this a real driver’s race.
Kid Karts will again be featured on the Saturday Practice with six sessions of practice and racing.
The race weekend will start with a Practice day on Saturday. All Sanzaru Games Series classes will be able to get in as many as eight practice sessions during the day.
