GROVE JUNIOR TEAM: MIKA LEMASURIER RECENT SUCCESS

MIKA LEMASURIER is currently competing in the Australian Kart Championship and recently headed to Perth for the second round at Tiger Kart Club, WA.

Mika has made a strong start to the season and currently sits 4th in the National Championships, just 9 points off second place.


"I have never been to this track before, but this is my second time to Western Australia. I had 8 practice sessions to learn the lines and braking points over two days, I was looking good over both days and my times during practice put me in position 6 for qualifying."


"Qualifying was close, I managed to qualify for P8 out of 42 drivers. This position put me in P5 and P6 for my first 2 heat races. I placed P3 and P4 in these two races which was pleasing. These results put me in P2 for my third heat race, where I finished 3rd again.


“The outside line on this track is very difficult for the first two corners as you cannot get across to cover the inside. I started 3rd for my last heat race, this race unfortunately resulted in a DNF, myself and another kart tangled while I was passing them in a flat-out corner and I unfortunately was squeezed onto a kerb in which I bounced off and went over his front tires which fired both of us into the fence. After all of the grid points were added up, I started from 7th.


"In the final, I had a great start, I was able to move up into 3rd by the 4th corner and finished the race in 2nd position. I wasn't quite fast enough for the win, but still stoked to come home in 2nd place against Australia's best."



Mika's next race is in Newcastle on the 2nd-4th June.

RESULTS:

Heat 1 - 3rd

Heat 2 - 4th

Heat 3 - 3rd

Heat 4 - DNF

Final - 2nd
