As weekends go this one turned out pretty good. Saturday practice was wet and we had great pace all day. Sunday was supposed to be the same, but as it turned out it stayed dry all day.
We had slightly less pace in the dry and were struggling to match the pace of the two Campfield drivers. However, Riley managed 3rd, 2nd and 3rd for the heats and lined up P3 for the final.
Initially it looked like there would be a 5 way battle as various karts got to the front in the first couple of laps but a few laps in and the front pack had dropped the other two drivers and it was the two Campfield drivers and Riley hanging onto their bumpers.
The 12 minute final seemed forever and just on the last lap when it looked like Riley might get dropped, he put in the fastest lap of the race and pulled back up to the campfield pair.
The leader half defended one of the corners and the second place man sent one up the inside. It didn't look overly late to me, but they both turned in and ended up ontop of each other.
As Riley followed them into the corner I thought was going to end up on top too, but he just slipped by to take the win and the fastest lap trophy. That's the way it goes sometimes..
This weeks technical note is all about visors. Been a bit annoyed with the new visor scratching so easily, so I tried to protect it with the Arai visor protector tear offs as seen above. I was sort of expecting these to stick on like a mobile phone screen protector, but they are just a plastic sheet that is held on with the lugs on the Arai visor. Unfortunately I found that this just rubs about on the visor catching dust underneath it and then scratching the visor even worse than if you have not used a protector. Really disappointed as I really wanted to look after the new visor.
