 MM RACING GOES TO THE GROSSE ILE GRAND PRIX

 MM Racing raced in the 3rd Annual Grosse Ile Grand Prix with team drivers; Todd Jones, Robert Knipe, Patrick Knipe, and Rick Knowles.  The track was lined with tires and was designed with few passing zones, but drivers with clear heads were okay with the layout.

 Rob Knipe raced a 2006 MMR-TaG chassis with a stock PRD engine and took 1st place in the TaG Pro series on Saturday.  Awesome finish against some really good drivers!  Racer note: the PRD engine in standard TaG race rules is in a 350 pound class, yet Rob raced in the 380 pound class.  The 30 pound disadvantage didn't stop him from taking home the money.

 Patrick Knipe raced a 2006 MMR-TaG chassis for three races, taking 1st place in the KT100 Can class overall.  Way to go Patrick!  This was Patrick's first race of the season and first his win.  Now if we can get him to free up some time, we hope to see him in more races this season.

Rick Knowles took 1st place in the KT100 Pipe class with his Fullerton chassis.  Congrats Rick!  He also raced the MMR-TaG chassis in the TaG Pro class, but could not get the Comer engine he was running to perform. 

Todd Jones ran the SQ EVO 32B Chassis w/Cheetah TaG package and SQ EVO 32B Chassis w/KT100 for the first time in a race.  He basically dropped the karts out of the box, broke the engines in, and took them to the track. 

"I was very pleased with the SQ kart's performance right out of the box in the KT100 and in the TaG class," says Todd Jones, President, MM Racing.  "I did not have an opportunity to align the karts or even scale them.  I simply threw some DWT magnesium rims on with MG tires and raced."

Todd earned the 2nd fastest lap in KT100, but had some wires come loose on the Cheetah motor so his TaG performance was less than expected.  Drivers remember to clamp down wires on the battery and coil because it is very disappointing to be out of a race because of a wire coming loose.

Too many drivers were barreling into areas that were only safe for one kart, but tried to force passing and/or spun out in the corners.  You would think that drivers would learn that entering tight corners at a slow controlled speed would give them a faster time out.  That wasn't the case, and several people were sent the hospital and/or will have some serious karting bills to get themselves ready to race again.
 
Todd even got his leg run over (nice bruise on his left thigh that will take a good month to heal) when a couple of drivers overdrove the corner and crashed into him in the Yamaha Heat 1 race.  However, he stuck in there and ended up taking 2nd in the heat.  Todd had to give the kart over to Rob Knipe to race Sunday because his leg was too sore.  Rob took the kart to a 2nd place finish in Heat 2, but then a bad sparkplug/TCI caused the engine to fail for the main event.

 MM RACING HITS THE TRACK

 MM Racing got out on the track for the first time this season at Jackson Speedway.  We worked with the crew there to setup a full track TaG racing course that utilized a 1/2 mile of the sprint and oval tracks.  We were also breaking in our latest items we added to our store, the SQ Motorsport EVO 32B chassis and Cheetah 125cc liquid cooled TaG motor.
