1st round
12th (+1L)
Turns out these karts have two engines. Sadly I didn't know this, so chugged round slowly for the entire first race not realising one of mine wasn't working, thereby explaining why everyone else left me for dead after every corner.

I should probably also apologise to John Earl who got the same kart in the second qualifying race, and though he did at least realise there was a problem and come into the pits to change, it cost us both a place in the 'A' final. (Neil T)
Plate final
2nd (+40s)
Now having two functioning engines, this race went somewhat better. Tom pulled away by around 1.5 seconds per lap and deserved to win, but second place was reasonably satisfactory, especially as I managed not to spin. Still, it would have been nice to come first, as I was a no-hoper for the evening's poker tournament. (Neil T)
