Albert kicking up a Storm
September 04, 2009 at 12:42 PM
We’ve done a lot of Karting since the last update with Albert progressing well and learning at a good rate, we've even seen signs of him listening and following advice!
We have been out at Red Lodge, Wilton Mill, PFI and regularly at Tilbury. Times at all tracks are tumbling but Tilbury is where we are most and lap times are now in the 36’s. He’s getting some good comments from people including ‘‘He’s the best under 8 I’ve ever seen!’’ from one very respected person in Karting. Another called him ‘The Wolf’ because he’s so hungry to reel in the Kart that he’s chasing!
In early June we decided to move Albert out of his first Cadet kart and into what I consider the best Cadet Kart out there, the Zip Storm. This also helps us in that we can now one-stop-shop at Zip for all our Karting spares, no running around everywehere which was a pain with our first Cadet.
NGK have now come on board to sponsor Albert and we would like to say a big thank you to them! We’d also like to thank the other companies supporting Albert; Rainbow Conference Sets, Teng Tools, 3t Creative, Cottingham Engineering and Lucas Oils Uk.
We have updated the gallery with some great pictures of Albert in his new Zip Storm and also added a couple of new videos so check them out!
