EPS Winter Series Rounds 1 & 2.



The 2-race format worked well - everyone seemed happy - so that's what we'll run for the Winter Series, and we'll look at formats for 2015 ... er ... later.

I was going to do some 'mentioned in despatches' ...... but soon realised it was the whole grid !
Great performances yesterday in every respect by absolutely everyone.

As you all know, we unavoidably lost a few teams at the eleventh hour .................... rounds 3 & 4, 18th January should be even more interesting ...... Autotekk, Balljoint, WWR, Kiss My Grass, Two Muskarteers(?), Brodie's (?), Grassroots (?), etc etc ........... no pressure !

If you're one of those teams who've told me you're 'nearly there' ...... dive in.
Literally probably.
 

 
 

Many thanks as always to Sallee, Luke, Nigel P & Jamie R ... Steve G ... Jeff J (prizes & everything), & Clay Kart Shop (prizes).

Endurance Prokart Series .......... Year one.

 
I’d just like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone who has taken part in the inaugural EPS season.

First, second & third – Teams Autotekk, Balljoint & Grassroots respectively, have set the bar pretty high for 2015 ……… but there are an awful lot of teams that will push them very hard for next year’s honours.

Everybody has taken on board the principle of hard, fair, friendly competition ….. and with only the odd (inevitable ?) slight hiccup, the driving standards have frankly been staggeringly high.

I'd add that hours and hours of bouncing off kerbs, and with generator engines designed to run at 3000rpm, can take it's toll, and it's a testament to your high standards of preparation that DNFs have been few and far between.

I’m particularly gratified that we have attracted real ‘racers’ …… teams that don’t labour under the old misconception that karting’s a piece of cake ……. it needs time, dedication and unfortunately the odd few quid to compete …… and it’s worth it I’d say.
 
I hope to see as many of you as possible for the Winter Series that kicks off on December 14th, and all of you back for EPS year two.

Lastly, I’m sure you’d all join with me to thank all the backroom stalwarts whose invaluable individual contributions made it all possible.
 
You’re all stars.
 
Tony
