Only one race of the season left. It's been a steep learning curve as crew chief this year. However Andrew has taken it in stride.
We had several DNF's to start the year. However he finished 2nd, two races ago and first this past race. So he's a happy camper.

Unfortunately, the video below starts after a restart. He had a half a lap advantage before a pile up behind him forced a restart(and the loss of a couple competitors).
Not the fastest kart out there, but he takes a good consistent line.

Way to go Andrew!!! :D
Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.
