David,

Everyone was fine, other than my foot getting a bit bruised. My kart (the one with the GoPro) was destroyed. The front of the chassis was bent and the left front wheel was under the kart. We couldn’t race in the final. #222 ended up coming from the back and finishing second. She is a talented driver, just tends to have a lack of awareness. This is not the first time this has happened to me. There was other contact throughout the weekend, a few instances right in front of the race director, and no penalty was issued, which was confusing.

 

On another note, this is a great video on starts as you said. I made a major error in lifting just slightly so as to not get penalized for jumping the start.
