Video of Conor at CRP

It's the off-season, so there's nothing new to report, but here's a video that I took with my iPhone of Conor during open practice for MSOKC Race No. 5 back in June. This is the "normal" direction (counter-clockwise) at Circleville Raceway Park. The video begins with Conor exiting Turn 10 (the final corner at CRP). He crosses the Start/Finish line (marked by an orange cone) and continues through Turns 1, 2 and 3. You hear gear changes from fourth, to fifth, and then sixth. Turn 1 at CRP is flat out for most karts, including our 80cc shifter kart. The long back straightaway between Turns 4 and 5 is longer than anything between Turns 10 and 3 at CRP, but top speed (about 70 mph for Conor) generally occurs entering Turn 3.
