Practice, went great. I was very fast, engine was really strong for an 80cc on methanol. I tested out my new helmet camera. Still need adjusting and had the mount of the camera wrong so I ended up shooting a lot of footage really close to my feet and directly in front of me. The kart has really skinny slick tires on it, which are per the rules for the class that I race in. So you do slide around a bit. We did not have a great turn out, so they grouped us all together. I'm running in the slowest class of vintage karts, the sidewinders are a lot faster, wider, stickier tires, and many are running much larger engine displacements and producing more horsepower.
As for the actual racing: Did Not Finish (DNF), every race. Really stunk. We thought at first it was just a fouled spark plug, put in a new plug, started the next race, nope, not the answer. Started the feature after checking a few things, made some carb adjustments, was better, but not good, appears to be something going on with the carb. Then came the rain, packed up and went home.
Next week, we take the vintage karts to Springfield, IL for the Illinois State Vintage Karting Races. Hope things go better there.
