Congratulations Kevin Geard.
For his efforts Kevin took home a Bosch cordless drill kit.
I love the caption, It would make a great club moto.
But also this photo represents a lot more than initially meets the eye. Paul Dunlop is a true representative of our sport. He traveled just under 1300km to get to Taupo raceway. Even knowing the weather was not going to be great, he made the haul just to be on the track and racing with us. When not racing he is developing and tweaking his kart, and now he has a very seriously fast, well presented, Superkart.
But our sport is about even more than passion and commitment.
Our sport is about people helping people. Seen in the photo here is Paul's helper 'Hilly'. None of us would actually be racing if it were not for our helpers. Be it pushers, go-fers, mechanics, someone to talk to for advice, someone to help you out with a spare part or a tool you haven't got at the track, our volunteer officials and race organisers. Helpers are everywhere, and our sport could not function without them.
This photo shows the bond between Passion, Machine and Helpers.
