Round 2 of our K1 Speed Seattle Challenge GP series saw Randy Olivarez and Javier Cantu-Lucero widen the gap they have over last season’s champion Sean Naslund by finishing first and second place respectively for the second race in a row. Sean’s absence from Round 2 may make it difficult for him to make up the points difference with only four races remaining in the season, so we expect the upcoming races to definitely be exciting!
Randy Olivarez qualified on the pole position, just ahead of Javier Cantu-Lucero and Michal Karpinski and was able to lead the field for the entire race. Javier Cantu-Lucero put up a good fight, but could not make the pass on the hard charging Randy. Michal Karpinski, a newcomer to our Challenge GP series put on an impressive performance and was able to finish on the podium in his first race! We hope to see Michal compete in future Challenge GP events and expect to see him apply pressure to our regulars!
