Daniel was testing during the week and again in Friday’s open practice for round 2 of the Austrian Max Challenge at the Ampfing circuit. NZ's Josh Hart, now racing on an Austrian Licence with IFR at the Euro Challenge in Germany, was also testing for 2 days at Ampfing and raced in the Austrian Rotax event. He’s running 2nd in the RMC series after 2 rounds.

The Ampfing circuit is where the CIK European Championship was also held two years ago and is only a bit over one hour from the Intrepid Force Rotax team workshop in Austria.

 The boys leave today (Tuesday) for ProKart Raceland, Wackersdorf, where the team will set-up the awning and have all the karts prepped for when the Euro Challenge official free practice begins Wednesday.
