alex Six Year Old Alex Lynch   Operation K1 Domination

Six year old Alex Lynch set a K1 Speed Record last week by setting the quickest lap times at all but one K1 Speed Location that offers Kid Kart racing. “Operation K1 Domination” began at one of the latest locations in the Southwest at K1 Speed in Phoenix, Arizona, and made its way west to Southern California to dominate the area locations. Along the way Alex set 3 new overall track records in a kid kart, and broke the 6-year-old record at each location he visited, all in just 7 days!

Alex’s next trip will hopefully be to the K1 Speed in South Florida to attempt to break the lap record in the South East. Congrats to Alex and his accomplishment – look out for this kid at future Challenge GP Race events and Junior/ Teen Challenge GP race events.
