K1 Carlsbad started the 2010 Challenge GP season in January, full of talented drivers. Not only did we have excellent attendance, but it was the first time that our track has been run in reverse with the current layout. Our A Main featured qualifying times all within one half of a second of each other, between 12 very competitive drivers. John Tanaka qualified on the pole position, with a time of 26.68 seconds, and was able to maintain his position throughout the entire race to take the win. He was followed closely by Cameron Carlson in second; with Khalifa Alasiri finishing in third. Our B Main also included 12 drivers with Sergio Florez starting the race in pole position with a qualifying time of 27.22 seconds. He was able to keep ahead of the rest of the field throughout the entire race to take the checkered flag. Challenge GP regular Julio Rodela finished in second, and Peter Maassardjian took third.
With the great competition between all participants, we expect the K1 Carlsbad Challenge GP Races to bring action and excitement throughout the year, and we invite everyone to come out and participate or spectate our next race on 2.21.2010.
