Our top drivers of the night are Jason Howard, Michael Mason, Michael Ha , Harry Collins, Josh Dreaver, Robert P.

 

It’s a cold night and many drivers have elected to wear the gloves to night and as they put on the race faces and helmets the starter calls them to the pit lane.  Starting off the front row we have Michael Ha and Harry Collins and they follow the pace kart out of the pits for a warm up lap. The light to go green and we are off and racing into the first turn of the lemans track. Michael Ha got off the a perfect start and leads the driver out of turn one will Harry Collins right on his tail. They run nose to tail for the lap and as they hit the top of the straight Harry Collins Runs wide giving Michael Ha a free pass as he opens up his lead to 1.5 seconds on the first lap.

 

Harry Collins is now under siege from Michael Mason but manages to hold onto 2nd spot. Robert P and Michael Mason are pushing one another to their limit and end up both running wide going into turn 7 letting Josh Dreaver driver pass without even a fight. Michael Ha still out in the lead also doing the fastest lap of the time being the first to break into the 60 second mark making it a real challenge for Harry Collins to catch up.
