Go-Cart Race Report!


Yesterday we held the big GSR Go-Cart Race!

There were tons of participants even from the early morning, so we’d like to give a big thank you for everyone who was able to come out!

There weren’t any other drivers from rival teams participating this time around, but this was Driver Nobuberu Taniguchi’s first time to join in, an even Taku Bamba (one of last year’s GSR drivers!) participated as a special guest!  All 3 Racing Miku Supporters were there too, the Miku Z4 replica was on display, the #0-13 bike that raced in the Isle of Man TT was on display and even had a demo run, a GSR Shop booth was there – and on and on!  Was that enough GSR for you for one day?  What do you think?

Well then, let’s take a look at some photos and recap yesterday’s events!

It was a beautiful sunny day!  Not a drop of rain to the very end!

At noon, there was a demo run of the “TT #0-13,” the electric bike that raced in the Isle of Man TT!  Riding was the team owner, Mr. Yoshihiro Iwamoto.

The GSR All-Stars were too fast.  And as this is a go-cart race there are penalties for breaking the speed limit – push-ups!  lol

And as a full-fledged race, last but not least, the pace car enters the track!
