Endurance Prokart Series

Round 4 - 21st June 2015

Well, our first longer distance race produced constant multi-lap 3/4/5/6-kart battles right up to the chequered flag - great stuff.
I'm personally really pleased to see yet more different teams going home with some silverware, and the 'league' system adding to the interest for the next round ............... 26th July.

Many thanks as usual to the team of Sallee, Luke, Nigel (and Jamie R), Lee and all the marshals ........... and Jeff Johnson for donating the raffle items ....................... and a VERY special mention for efforts beyond the call of duty by Steve Foster & Nick (Dirt) Walker for retrieving one of the fuel-rig nozzles from the Balljoint fuel tank - saved my bacon !

GX160 engine

Hi everyone.

I would point you at an announcement made today by the MSA which may be in your interest to pay heed to.

A couple of engine tuners are intimating that their engines are inspected by an MSA representative prior to delivery - and therefore the customer can rest assured that they are fully legal.
The latter point may or may not be true ...... the former is definitely not.

The MSA announcement -
"Some engine preparers may claim that their engines have been inspected and approved by an MSA scrutineer, either prior to a race event or as a precursor to a sale. The fact is that no MSA Official endorses any engine products. A scrutineers function is primarily to ascertaining compliance with the relevant regulations at a race event.”

To my knowledge, there are only one or two EPS runners with engines from these companies.

I would make it clear that I'm not advocating one engine builder over another, just asking you to be aware of the MSA statement, and what the engine builder/seller tells you.

You probably wouldn't want to be embarrassed at parc-ferme scrutineering.

Endurance Prokart Series 2015 Round 3

Round 3 was very 'busy' (!), with even more teams joining us, all of whom are on a very steep learning curve ........ keep at it guys, you're doing brilliantly.
And it was good to have 3 Kartforce karts along.
There were countless examples of great comebacks and drives - far too many to mention - you know who you are.
Altogether, Prokart endurance racing at it's very best.
Put  21st June  in your diary for the  4.5hr  Round 4 ....... coming up fast ! 

Many thanks as usual to Sallee, Luke, Nigel, Lee, Jamie and all the (very hard working) marshals.
