Finally getting around to posting this up….taken long enough….
Bwarp.net.nz decided to hold a bit of a karting tournament to settle all the trash talk that was going down after we posted up some other photos of us fanging karts around.
A selection of 3 driver teams were invited to race they were:
Skids On Krew (SOK)
The date was set for 6th of June and North City Indoor Raceway was booked for ‘Le Mans style’ endurance racing.
120 lap total, split between 3 drivers. each driver did 20 laps and then swapped, so they got two sessions. With this style also comes skill and teamwork when doing driver swaps. Driver changes can make or break a race for the team.
All drivers lined up down the front straight and sprinted for the karts on the word go.
The battles were raging on the race track with Jasper (Rangi Kustomz) desperately trying to fend off James (R’s Garage), Dan (Team Bwarp) trying to get the pass on Loryn (Team Sloot), and everyone else trying to safely pass Craig (SOK) who was spending time getting to know the tyre wall. Milk (PP&C) also found a new ‘hot line’ running straight through pit lane at full tilt after the brake lever on his kart broke.
After 120 laps, Rangi Kustomz came out on top with R’s Garage close behind (even though Kris stopped 1 lap too early, and had to get back in the Kart and finish his last lap)
anyway – here’s some action shots.
Team sloot came out in matching team outfits – so cute! <3
Team Bwarp pumped to go.

We will definitely be doing it again and have a few more teams lining up to be a part of it all!
