MKC Round 2 Race Report
This presented a podium opportunity to the fledgling racer. If he could get a good start and get past the J60 kart just ahead on the start, while his closest competitors got stuck behind, there might be a chance to build a gap and snatch the final podium spot in the final.
This was the strategy and the hope, and it got even more exciting with a very light sprinkling of rain that was threatening to wreak havoc in the final. The rain, though never quite materialized more than a few drops, not enough to cause a real difference, and the strategy never quite materialized either. Our man’s start was good enough, but he got caught out of position going into turn 2 and lost 2 positions, one of which he made back immediately in the next corner, but the damage had been done. He had lost the initiative and couldn’t get past the J60 kart, while 2 of his main rivals, Dante in the number 77 and Edvard Spangenberg in the number 67, both did.
Deven was not done, though, and on the 3rd lap he made sure to get it done, sweeping to the inside of turn 2 and then extending and making the pass stick before exiting the first S’s onto the back straight away. By that time, though, Edvard had made too much of a gap for Deven to chase onto, and he never quite came within striking distance to try and snatch up another place.
