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.

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.

AWSOME!

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
