Damn Crawlers!

That is the video of people racing in carts in Runway9. We went to race those small machines there for a few laps. Lots happened. Apart from all the drifting, skidding, Guns spun out and make Vik to spin 2 complete rounds and crash into the tire wall. As Vik put it, noob Guns was stationary at 90deg to the track when he almost crashed. They had a couple of incidents each and they both had fun. I on the other side was stuck behind crawlers most of the time. We three tried to race but Guns’ great spin out left us scattered all over the track, so it was pretty much a lonely race for everyone. It wasn’t incident free for me either, though I didn’t crash I had worse. It was a U turn, and I was trying to pass a crawler, well, he refused, I was on the inside line trying to make a pass, he wanted the inside line all for himself and forced me off the track, worst, there was a manhole right in my path. I was blank.. I stepped on it, luckily got the tires onto the manhole cover and was safely out. In the last lap I was trying to drift, I flicked the steering and it went all the way sliding and bumped into another cart, and that guy crashed into the tire wall, I didn’t hear any swearing but probably there was some he he, was fun though :D. The G-forces were awesome; getting thrown from one side to another is quite exhilarating.

I had this great idea of strapping my digicam to the cart and then make a bumper cam style video of my laps. We went loaded with the camera and duct tape only to realize there wasn’t any place on the cart to strap the camera to. So took the video of other people racing. Notice the crawler in the video? damn!

On a fun scale of 1-10, I rate carting as 8.5, its real fun. Bit expensive but worth it guess. We did 12 laps mind you.
