A new suit for podiums etc. is a good idea and an option for some but not all. The best option that I have found is to use Molecule suit care and cleaning products. I have been using it for years on all white or light colored suits that get used nearly every weekend with a junior driver. Suits stay looking like new when washed after every outing.
30 minutes is not nearly enought time to showcase all the classes! The three classes that got coverage I thought was pretty good… Interviews with top qualifiers before the race, interviews with winners after the race and nice podium shots. But …. what about the other classes of racers that raced just as hard and invested the same time and effort to attend the race ?
I have seen and driven a Rotax shifter motor with 6 gears. It was quite a few years ago at Moran. The guy had it on a Tonykart. I am pretty sure that it had electric start and a rave valve like a Rotax kart motor . It wasnt as fast as a Stock Honda but pretty close. I have seen another one on Craigs list a while back as well. maybee the same kart … So they do exist.
