Karen attended the Japfest 2 event and spent the day giving paying passengers thrill rides around the circuit. Unfortunately, Karen's own car was still being worked on and so TenguDo Motorsport provided their #29 car for her to use.
The weather forecast was for heavy rain and so the car had been prepared with a soft suspension setup and Federal 595 RS-R tyres. the day had started dull, but then the sun came out and the weather was glorious! A fantastic time was had by all members of the Red Dragon Race and Track Club who had brought their cars for static display or for passenger drives on the circuit.
