ROUND 2  -   20/04/2017 

Hello and welcome to round two blog of Kingston Park Raceways Triple M Tag Team Challenge! And what a heart pumping night it was with new and old faces alike joining in on the 90lap / 100klm endurance event.  A full grid always means full excitement and that's exactly what we had with a full grid of 19 karts, 3 drivers a team and each of them pulling competitive lap times all night.

How does it work:- During the race each driver will race for 10 laps then come in to do the driver change  over and in all drivers will do this 3 times each so you don't only have to be fast on the track you also have to have clean and fast driver change over's in the pits to win this race...

For Round Two Triple M challenge we have joining  us is: Don't Blush Baby, Foreigners, Cranky Pants Racing, Go Kart Avengers, Tech Path, Shriro Schumachers, DJS Motorsport, The F1 Wanna Bs, DJM Racing, Far Q,  Cool Running, Red Cup Coffee Racing, The Nolan Bros and a Pom, Hansmix, JRR Racing, Karteram, Full Throttle, Triple M winners and Logan law who never started the race due to a personal issueââ�¬Â¦

As all teams the 2 minute whistle sounds the first driver jumps into their kart start their engine then with 10 seconds to go they make their way out onto the 1100 meter Le Mans track to grid up behind the pace kart two bye two.  It's a rolling start and as the driver head down the main straight for the first of 90 laps we have all the other drivers cheering on their teams. What a sight, race faces on, lights go green and we are off. As all driver get off the a very fast and clean start Don't Blush Baby leads them into Honda hairpin but they don't have  time to look back as everyone is right behind and bumper to bumper. Time for pit stop one and The Full Throttle team hit dirty on the outside of 2 and slide  into the tire wall dropping their team down the grid but it's ok there 81 laps left to go to make up for that small error.

Lead drivers head into the pits to do there driver change. What the heck, DJS motorsport came sliding into the pits on the greasy surface and got sideways causing a blockage of pit entry and blowing away any gap the leaders had built in the first driver's stint. The big mover in the pits was Red Cup Coffee Racing who did a super-fast change over and jumps up 7 places just in pit lane. They scramble to get back on track and don't Blush Baby ended up having a spin and giving the lead away to DJM Racing who take advantage of the clear track and blast away from the pack and set the fastest lap of the race with a 61.330 lap.

The battle at the rear of the grid was as intense as it was up front with Triple M winner and Full Throttle racing hard to stay in touch with our leaders.  The team from Don't Blush Baby are on a charge and taking every advantage but took one too many risks and ended up on th e tyre wall at 2 while trying to paqss the Techpath team. Don't Blush Baby now have to put their head down and race smooth and fast to make up for that one.

In the mid field we have a 4 way battle for 4th place with  Karteram, JRR Racing The F1 wanna Bs and Cranky Pants racing flat out and putting on a great show.

As the teams come into for another driver change over The f1 wanna Bs drop the ball and brake the pit lane speed limit and that cost them 10 precious seconds and putting them on the back of the 4 way battle for 4th place.

At the 60 lap mark most teams are all circulating in the mid 62 seconds so the only place to jump up the leader board is in the pits and the drivers know the value of a good driver change. Red Cup Coffee are very slick in the pits with a 62 second lap time and a fast 24 second driver change which won them fastest pit change of the night.

As DJM Racing were on fire and lapping almost  .5 of a second faster than any other team giving them a great lead over the field but the real battle was for 2nd place between Red Cup coffee Racing and DJS motorsport as both teams come in for their driver change over's at eaxactly the same time. Unfortunately Red Cup Coffee Racing forgot to place their helmet on the seat before the next driver jumps into the kart getting a  10 second pettily letting 2nd place get away.

DJS motorsport set off o the last driver change in hot pursuit of our leaders DJM Racing but in the excitement they were involved in a small on track skirmish that slowed them down and allowed the fast moving Red Cup Coffee Racing to steal 2nd place. Wow what a race, what a finish and as the Checker flag drops the Finishing positions of the top teams were:
