Sunday Night Heats Recap as seen by Dave
That was the 1st heats races I’ve done in something like 5 years. Several new faces, and some of the usual suspects.
If the competition is good it forces you to drive aggressively to get to the front in the 10 laps. And when it isn’t it forces you to get to the front to avoid all the rookie mayhem at the back.
1st race I got spun into the barrier then put into the barriers so hard they broke apart, and then spun again. And this was only the 1st 4laps!!
Restart…game on. Now the name of the game was outside-in. They go full throttle into a turn and you simply back off and break puts you at the apex while they are hopelessly spinning too the outer wall. Do that a few times and you end up in 3rd. Unless your Roman and start in the front. Then you can laugh at me every time you pass! But that’s ok see….cause next time I’M in the front!!!
Roman gets stuck in last for the 1st few laps. Then is somehow how on my bumper fighting for 1st even despite the three caution laps….in three laps! Only in heats!! Meanwhile VJ and Dmitry have the some of the same craziness in their races.
For the main Roman edged me out for the pole, Dmitry was 3rd and VJ in 4th. Roman pulls away at the start but then seems the kart goes away which allows me get back to his bumper and eventually ‘bump’ past him and into the lead.
He held onto the 2nd spot with Dmitry in 3rd and AJ in 4th, Clarity in 5th, Russkiy in 6th, VJ 7th, Trevor 8th, Ty in 9th and Codee in 10th.
