More fun at the Go-Kart track

We had another outing to TBC Racing in Richmond as a work-sponsored outing. As usual, it was a lot of fun, and overly competitive.

I was much better behaved than last time.

It was a personal goal of mine to drive 'clean' which meant no bumping my way past the others, no ramming them into the corners and definitely NO black flags or warnings for me. For the first half of the evening, it was pretty easy. I either had open track ahead of me, or the scraps for position I had were brief, fun encounters with others.

However, on the last race (the non-competitive one) I encountered Chris the Blocker. I know he was only having fun and yeah, it was fun, but he was driving slower than me and would NOT let me by. Multiple times he would ram me out of position rather than let me pass him. Each time he would sprint ahead, only to have me catch him within a lap. I would then tailgate like nobody's business until he gave me another opportunity. Rinse and repeat until the end of the race. Needless to say, my times were not so great for that outing. But it was still fun.
