Opinions seem to be all over the board. Some felt the event was terrible/the worst street race ever. Others believe it was a great first time event/fast track. Are there things that can be done to make the event better, YES. Should there have been things changed on the track to make it safer, YES (some things were done, some things were not). Did the sport get great exposure to well over 3,000 people that may have never seen karting before, YES. Did a number of karts get bent up because of accidents, YES. Does it happen at any street race you attend, YES.
There are a lot of questions and comments surrounding the event, as we hope to express in upcoming columns.
