NEW ZEALAND NATIONALS!

Well, that’s a wrap on our racing in the NZ. It has been an incredible experience, and we’re so happy to have been here

The boys tried their absolute best, but so did all the NZ drivers. We had some amazing results (all things considered) and some tough races, but ended with a great setup

A massive congratulations to both Colin and Lucas for their incredible efforts over the last three days. Special thanks to Tony Bowden and Superkarts Drivers Club NZ for organising the event. Scott Williams for wrapping the karts. Teddy Bassick and Tony for providing exceptional karts and your tremendous efforts getting the boys up to speed. Also, to every single person who organised and ran the event.

Colin ended up 5th overall, with an awesome 3rd finish in the GP. It was tough racing but after he worked out his setup he got some great results.

Lucas finished with 6th overall, he had some awesome drivers to compete against and some unfortunate contact on two occasions. Though, he did well running with the front pack.

We’re so proud of them, and can’t wait to see how well they go in the upcoming AU Nationals. Bring it onto the NZ drivers coming across in October.

Here are some of the viewer comments:

Wow those things are fast...Great footage man...Love those dual carbs. 

Great footage, You guys are hardcore racers. All respect to you. I think Superkarts are the heaviest form of racing. Even more so then F1's. 

Bass rocks!!
It's scary just watching it - great footage.
Yep those carbies add to the effect.
Keep up the good work guys
