Saturday, November 29, 2014 – Championship Saturday
Good morning, race fans and karting enthusiasts –
The excitement has been building all week for today’s main events, and Team USA will put their collective support behind nine Americans who have qualified to run in the Prefinals and Finals. Sting Ray Robb and Christian Brooks will aim for glory in Junior Max, while Oliver Askew, Phillip Arscott and Jake Craig will be part of the Senior Max fight. Michael Ilavia, Gavin Reichelt, and Nick Neri will participate in DD2 and Alan Rudolph, coming off a brilliant run from 25th to sixth in the LCQ, will carry the flag in DD2 Masters.
With the rain having arrived yesterday, and having continued through the evening, today’s morning warm-up became extra important. All of the drivers who qualified directly into the finals will get their first chance to sample the track in the wet, so post-session debriefing will be crucial.
We’ll be following the races closely and will be posting the Team USA results immediately to Facebook and Twitter, and to this official forum thread as well.
If you’re up early, or staying up late, to cheer on Team USA, enjoy the day…it’s going to be exciting, for certain.
