Our Racing Team makes the Newspaper, again

The Greenwich Citizen decided to do a story on our racing family.
It was wonderful! We had been on the Greenwich Times almost two years ago, but this time it was two full pages with three photos. Sports writer Rob Kelly came to our house for the interview and did a very professional job with the article, we received so many compliments on it. The kids were very exited and amused to see themselfs on the paper. Thanks Rob.

The Last few races were action packed.

In our regional on the June 12th weekend we had our share of mechanical failures while trying to find the right set up at a new track in NJ Motorsports Park in Melville NJ.

The problems included Tazio's rear axle snapping in two under stress during practice, also a broken clutch, broken seat strut and the engine overheating during the final race. 7th and 8th was the best we were able to manage in cadet class.

In RP Juniorsportsman class we did much better on older tires securing the podium, finishing 3rd in both races. We brought home two nice trophies.

The 1.1 mile new track was wonderful, our favorite so far.

On June 27th we had our first Saturday night race at Englishtown NJ.
With Dario's help we were able to fine tune the kart correctly. Tazio got to work with another great drive to third place. We were able to film some of the action with a new helmet cam we have. You can view it on our youtube channel.
