Ramirez & Cresci Duke It Out at Thunder Hill
#17 Marcos Ramirez
#00 Matt Cresci

Rattlesnake Electric Sport arrived in Willow California for Round 4 of the Northern California Karters Road Race Series. The freshly paved Thunderhill Raceway Western Loop is 1.8 miles of nearly the perfect Group 2 EKart Track. Matt Cresci, Marcos Ramirez and Richard Hilleman came to contest for the EKart I and EKart II classes, with Rich running his CRF250R training Kart in 4 Stroke Unlimited.

In Race 2, Marcos and Matt had a terrific battle that ended with Marcos taking the three lap race, followed closely by Matt. Marcos managed a 1:22.168 for the 1.8 mile course. Matt clicked in less than 2/100ths with a 1:22181. Those two times represented the #3 & #4 best laps of the race for all classes.

Rich left his best for Race 5. Matt and Marcos ran off to an early lead in their neck and neck tustle. Matt Cresci took early advantage of the draft and stretched the race out to 9laps, lowering his personal best lap time to 1:22.272. Marcos managed 6 laps, and lowered his track record to 1:21.499. Meanwhile back in Dinosaur Kart Land, Rich led wire to wire in the 4 Stroke Unlimited Class, lapping the field to win Race 5 overall....
