ESK8 Singapore Track Day

On Tuesday, we held a short event at a Go Kart track, where we had free reign of the track to ride around.

Here’s what went down!

This is a first time experience for majority of us, and also we’re pretty much fish outta water as most of us are casual riders.

There’s a total of three groups, and each were given an hour each. 45 mins would be free riding, and the last 15 mins are for a race of the group.

Group 1, we were told to go easy, so hence the snail pace. But then, the rider on the Arc Penny had a big brain move and kicked pushed at the start and left all of us in the dust. Full video here

Ok, Group 2!
I was on this race, and was beside @BillGordon. I’m all decked out in black, and riding my Hash Evo.

Race 3!
I was not on this one, but there were a few fast one’s here.

And also, a full FPV shot of the whole event.

And the winners for the first race.
1st : Alex
2nd : @Linny
3rd : @Grievor

Second race
1st : @BillGordon
2nd : @Linny
3rd : Aizat

We didn’t snap a pic for the 3rd race, but here are their names and boards
1st : Chun (Lacroix Prototipo stock)
2nd : Aizat (Evolve Carbon GT)
3rd : Bryant (Evolve Carbon Gen 2)

More pics and videos of the event





So yea, this event is a first of it’s kind around here, and gave everyone a good insight on their board’s limits, as well as rider skill. After tonight, i am hooked onto kart racing, and who knows, you might see me build a race board.

Also, would like to shoutout our main man Bill, which is a fine example of how it’s not about how beast your board is, but how good your riding skills are. He won with his Exway X1 Pro on hubs.

Suck it!

The guys at Arcboards put on a great event, and had prizes for the winners and everything. Total class undertaking. They were also nice enough not to post the pictures of my backside after I tore my alibaba harem pants all the way up the back before the race.

Yes, Bill tore his pants before the race. Brilliant strategy to bust out the full moon and left us all in the dust.

He was on track the whole three hours. When I found out there was racing, I went out for 3-4 laps to get my lines, put the board on the fast charger, and sat my ass down.

I have to practice turning fast, something i’ve yet to master, perhaps my 6355s could use an upgrade… haha!

Super Stoked to see you guys track racing. :checkered_flag:
No mater what you like to ride it gives you a good perspective of what both the board and rider limitations are in a safe repeatable environment.
It drives people to figure out what works and glean techniques from each other. This is what should be happening everywhere. Looks like @BillGordon has the bar set. No doubt someone will step up and put him to test. Hope to see your group doing this again soon. Great Job :checkered_flag:
Congrats on the “W” Bill.

Appreciate the kind words Moe! I have gotten hooked on this genre of esk8 and would love to learn more about how to improve setups for track maneuvering. So having seasoned folks like you around is a pleasure :smile:
