Congratulate him. I think 7 2nd places is harder on him than anything. Tell him it will come. Good thing is he is getting a very good look at the winning line.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Tell him to spin, crash, or wreck the first place guy like any pro does, especially Schumacher. Tell him to grow some nads and fight like a man.

Here's the race dates between now and the end of the season.

September 20th
October 4th
October 18th
November 1st

Then the "Autumn on the Asphalt" event on November 8th, which I guess isn't for points. So he only has 4 races to make up about 27 points. You get 87 for first, 82 for second, and 4 points separates the remainder of the places below that.

I know he'll be too big for this series next year (which is a shame, because they take care of all maintenance etc on these karts). I'm open to suggestions from others on where he should go next. He's 10 years old, turning 11 in a couple of months. Tall, like dad...nearing 5'. But he has a European driver's physique in that he's thin and fit.

A second place fighting for it in a back up car is pretty damned good! Congratulations to the boy! Yeah, post that video. Jim
