K1 Seattle’s 5th GP
K1 Speed in Seattle held its 5th Challenge GP race this past Tuesday May 11th. With a fast set of qualifying rounds the drivers were going to put on quite a show in the main. Luke Hopton took the pole posting a qualifying time of 17.821 seconds, holding off Javier Cantu-Lucero with a 17.878 second lap to start him off in the second. Rounding out the top 3 would be Saundra Price qualifying with a 19.035 second lap. The rolling start got all the drivers freight-training around the track where Luke would hold off everyone until the final lap where he was passed by Javier coming out of the final turn. Javier was just inches in front of Luke and the track officials had to go back and look at our timing system and closely view the photo finish to verify Javier would be the one at the top spot on the podium. After a short review it was determined Luke finished second and Saundra would remain in third to round out the top 3 trophy spots for the night.
