On Sunday, January 1, 2009, K1 Speed Seattle hosted their first Grand Prix challenge of the 2009 season. This event is held one day out of the month where top racers can test their skills on challenging reverse courses, only offered on Challenge GP days. Competitors especially like the small technical road course because of its drifting capabilities; it definitely helps to create a real racing feel. Racers took part in a 12-lap practice session, 14-lap lap qualifying race and 16-lap final position race.
Congratulations to Sean Naslund, Wrathchet and Randy Olivarez for placing respectively. K1 Speed Seattle will continue to host their Challenge GP on the last Sunday of every month at 10 a.m. For its first season of the year, the GP will be on a reverse track. Thank you to everyone who participated and stay tuned for more Challenge GP results.
