Scariest moment on track

When blowing up my engine while driving.

working point as a driver

Looking less behind me when driving
+ staying concentrated after making a mistake

What does OKT-Racing look like in 3 years

More OKT-Racing members, more kart owners, participating fun competitions,
becoming a good mechanic myself and
providing a Rotax Max kart for rental purposes.
