March 22, 2010 - Points standings have been updated. The winners of the $25 AIK gift certificates and 2 runs in the Volta GP electric kart are those who scored the most points in each class in yesterday's event. They are....
GT1: Michael Wu, 44 points (David Nguyen not eligible)
GT2: Eric Jones, 46 points
GT3: Linwood Mishler, 45 points
GT4: Graham Fuller, 47 points
Lap sheets:
Race 1
Race 2
Race 3
Note: In Heat 26 (Race 1, Group A) there was a timing discrepancy with karts 16, 18 and 19 (1 lap was added to their distance) so the finishing order shown is incorrect. The correct finishing order is based on average lap time and time difference to the winning kart ("Diff"). The order is correct in the Race results posted yesterday (3/21).
Posted some on-board footage which should be available tomorrow.
