Jim Russell 4 Hour Enduro Race Report 
MS Kart finishes 3rd

The 9th running of the Jim Russell Racing Schools annual 4 hour endurance race was held December 5th at the at the famous Infineon International Karting Facility just north of San Francisco.
Twenty-seven drivers entered into this event, three championship winning drivers in Bobby Tiftt, Conner Ford and Brody Zink were recruited to drive our MS Kart.
With the weather getting cold for this time of year, drivers and teams were faced with an added challenge of using a new control tire for this race. The very hard Yokohama Advan tire. With a cold track and hard tires, this made for a very interesting day of racing.

During the one-hour of practice prior to the race, we quickly found a set up that worked well with the RA 26 chassis that we were using and qualified in fourth place for the start of the race.
Unfortunately 25 minutes into the race our kart was involved in an accident with another competitor and suffered a bent axle and flat tire. We lost 11 laps while repairing the damage, and after rejoining the race, our drivers went to work driving laps that were a second faster than any other kart in the race and getting back to second place on the road by the end of the third hour. Then trouble struck again, a broken exhaust pipe caused an unscheduled stop for a replacement and caused us to drop back to third place on the road.

With thirty minutes of the race remaining, Tiftt set the fastest laps and was closing in on the second placed kart fast. But time was not on our side and the checkered flag flew at the end of the fourth hour with Tiftt finishing 15 seconds behind the second place kart. Our MS Kart proved to be fast and easy to drive with all of our drivers lapping within tenths of each other during their mandatory half-hour driving shifts.
Looking forward to racing the new 2010 FZF29 chassis soon.

Regards, Greg Zink

Hi Milena!

Grand final: Philip Hall was number 3 in the final this weekend in Micro.
Filip Gudmundsson was number 4 in the final this weekend in KZ2. Filip did win all 3 heat before the final it was dry then, but to the final it was rain and we did not find the right set up.
Both Philip Hall and Filip Gudmundsson did take the DM championship so after all it was a good weekend! 

Best regards,
Stefan Malm

Hi Milena!

We had bad and good weekend in Gothenburg! This is one of the biggest race in Sweden We won in Micro this weekend with Philip Hall ! Philip had the best lap time in time practice. He came second in the first race and he did win the 2nd race. In the final he was number 1 !!

But in KZ2 Filip Gudmundsson was number 2 when the driver who was number 3 just ran into him from the back and pushed him of the track. At that time Filip was the fastest driver on the track and the victory went away from us....

This weekend we go to Kalmar for the last race of the South Swedish Championship. We are in good advance to win the whole serie in Micro and KZ2.

Best regards,
Stefan Malm

Hi Milena!

We had a new victory this weekend! 
The race, called Golden summer in Kristianstad, was the first one for Philip Hall with the new MS-kart 950 Chassi.

Tha class is called Micro and is a national class, powered by Raket 85cc engines. This is his first year in the class and he has competed successfully with other chassis before, but could not resist the opportunety from Malm Racing to test this new chassi from MS!

He had tested it out in Junior 60 and Micro before the race. The expectations were high! In the first practice he was third, three tens after the fastest. Second practice after sprocket change he was fastest....
Qualifying he was second one tens after best, we had to test the second engine.

First heat he started second wich he held into goal. Second he started the same but advanced to first.
Prefinal in the lead from start to the goal....
Final, started first and was when the checkered flag fell 0.15 sec ahead of number two!
We did not find the most power in the engine this day, but after good work from Philip he could finish with a victory!
We have not yet found the best parameters in the chassi, so it will go even faster in the future!

Best regards Philip Hall with crew Malm Racing

Hi Milena and Jana,

First I'd like to thank you fast delivery for the parts we needed just before the race weekend.
Last weekend was the first Finnish Championship race and MS Kart and fuel injected Honda CRF450 debut in the series.
The weather was changing all the time and some of sessions were dry and some wet. Even we hadn't test new chassis at all before race, it was excellent from at begin. I had no one problem with it at the whole weekend.

I started qualifying quite slow, but still manage to the super pole session (super pole is final qualifying session for best six). I was sixth.
In super pole I was fourth, so starting position was in the second row.
The first final started even better. I made a holeshot and lead first four laps. Then I left too much room for competitors and the final result was third.
The second final was wet race. Start wasn't so good this time and after 15 laps, I was fifth.
Overall result for Saturday was shared third place.

Third and fourth final was on Sunday. I was expecting good results, but sometimes all don't go so well.
Qualifying was so tight that I miss super pole by 0.2 seconds. Starting position was 8th.
The first final start was good also this time and I managed to get fifth position. After 15 laps, final result was sixth.
The second final start also great and I was managed to overtake three competitors and was third after two laps. In third lap front sprocket broke, so I had to retire.

Even Sunday ended not so good, the overall feeling was positive. The chassis and engine are great. Next race is in two weeks, so we have to work even more to get first victory for MS Kart in Finland. I hope it will be in the near future.

See pictures. Marko Laine (MS Kart/Honda) number 18.

Last weekend we had our 1st race in the Aragon Championship for the Rotax DD2. AFTER taking 2^ND AND 3^RD IN our very first race with the MSKART in the Catalan Rotax Challenge we were very anxious to get to the race in Aragon, a circuit which we have never even seen let alone driven. Saturday.
Morning a very cold morning the drivers go out to learn the circuit taking things very easy,the tempreture started to get better and by mid afternoon we were in times of the top 10 drivers of 13 with very few changes to the chasis the drivers very happy with their times we leave the circuit to go and see a FANTASTIC 2-6 Madrid- Barcelona football


Warm up times very good
Qualifying we end up 4the on the grid and 10 th on the grid but all very very close its going to be a hard race here

AFTER A FLYING START from our driver Juan he goes in to second place but a large stone goes under the front spoiler and at the next bend goes straight getting back on the track makes a briiliant come back to finnish 4^th. The other driver after being pushed off when he was running 5^th finished 10^th

WITH ALL EYES ON US after the flying start from Juan in the first race, we were very very nervous but the traffic light went out and at the second corner JUAN (planetkart ) and the distinctive blue MSKART were SECOND Juan our driver with physical problems after the first race controlled the situacion and the second MS KART was running 3^rd until low and behold the same driver who took him out in the first race touches David from behind again and off the track again Juan controlling the race perfectly finishes 2^nd in the final and David 9^th a very very good weekend and very very happy. With 2 races only with the new MSKART RZF29 DD2 and very little time to test TWO SECOND PLACES AND A 3^RD can not ask for a better start to our season our next race WE RACE AT OUR HOME CIRCUIT and looking forward to dedicate our first victory TO MILAN

THANK TO ALL AT MSKART on behalf of the team
