Josh Hatton, MLC Motorsport, showed excellent speed at kartmasters on the new, improved, Mach1 kart.
“Massive thank you to all the guys at MLC Motorsport for the spot on support and calls all weekend, the guys back at the Mach1 factory for providing us such a rapid machine” said Josh Hatton
From the moment the kart touched the track on Thursday we were fast. In fact, arguably fastest for some of the day.
We achieved a solid 9th in qualifying on Friday. Sitting comfortably in 7th in the first heat until engine issues ended the race. In the second heat, still suffering from engine issues, Josh managed a solid 10th.
The same engine gremlins continued for qualifying on Saturday with a poor 25th, but with the problem finally traced, great pace returned with two good heats, climbing from 25th to 11th and 14th respectively, showing top 6 pace in the dry.
This left us 24th on the grid in the main event even after a DNF in first heat. A great drive through the pack to 11th and 5th fastest overall. Looking at our two best sector splits, we were fast and now far enough up the grid to push for a result.
However, being pushed wide at the start and then getting smashed off at the hairpin ruined any chances before we got going. But again strong pace, and the new chassis is working great.
