The TTKA wrapped up their 2010 championship year with the kind of excitement you would expect from this crop of drivers. Some were out there racing for a championship, others for pride but every driver wanted to finish the year on high. While a few left the event on Sunday with momentum at their backs the majority know they have work to do in the off season if they are going to take the top spot in 2011.

With two races remaining in the 2010 season the battles were far from over going into the event. Most competitors that started the season as “also rans” have developed into serious contenders and are now consistently taking home points. 2 of the 5 classes can be won today but it will take a lot of hard work and a fair amount of luck.

This had to be one of the wettest karting events of all time. The inclement weather stopped racing after just two class races as officials pondered on canceling the event. Water pooled up, ankle high, on the northern side of ARC as everyone huddled under the tents for shelter from the rain and wind. The showers eventually stopped and after making some adjustments to the course, the officials restarted the event and racing continued for the rest of the day under an overcast sky. The water splashes and sliding made racing even more exciting for both competitors and spectators and really tossed up the usual finishing order!

A call later confirmed that he was otherwise ok and racing went on for the rest of the day without a hitch, as racers battled for points leading up to the championship. The podium told the story at the end of the 6th TTKA championship event for 2010.
