Jake In Japan: Day 3 Diary (Friday)Tweet
* Subsequent to this update, Jake qualified 16th in the 30-kart KF2 field, 0.382s off pole (Kevin Rossel, Birle/BMB). He then had a DNF and a 15th in the two heat races. One more heat, pre-final and final to run on Sunday. More to follow...

Tough day in Japan today (Friday). Struggling to get the kart set up around my height. Other drivers in the team would be pushing 5 foot haha :) ended up position 14 overall for today.
My kart felt quite good in the first session this morning. Everyone ran new tyres.
In the second and third sessions I was around 7th and 8th fastest for my group, however the kart developed a lot of oversteer on the exit of the corner. This led to the kart losing revs on exit and costing me time. The team thinks that because I am so tall I am working the kart a lot more than the other drivers in the team.
New tyres saved for carby session tomorrow morning, then we have qualifying (or kronos as they call it over here lol).
