Woohoo - Just a few more days and Grand Prix weekend is upon us
Many of us will be kicking back for a weekend away from karting to watch the big guns play at Albert Park.

Will your kart be a front running Mercedes, or a disappointing McLaren-Honda for the rest of the season?

Are you most like the cool calm and collected Ricciardo, the monotone Kimi, or the feisty teenager Max?

Maybe you'll be the underdog surprise package at round 2 in just 4 weeks time?

We learned this was possible late a bit too late for round 1 - but can now save some of the hassle of refund cheques for those with free entries.

The sun made the shadows too strong which made it hard to get many good photos.
