Karen and Terry Corin of TCL Apparelmaster have two certified speed demons for sons. The two teens recently competed at the World Go Kart Championship in Italy and much to their proud parents delight, both finished in the Top 10.
It was an exhilarating week on the Italian track for Team Corin, characterised by swift races, a series of mechanical hiccups, unexpected crashes, damaged equipment, and an undeniable dose of drama! The climax was undoubtedly the Superfinal.
Even the commentators couldn't help but note that this was one of the most thrilling finals they've ever witnessed. With Blake beginning at position 17 and Mitch starting further behind at 28, the race was anything but predictable.
Blake was off to a fantastic start, strategically overtaking karts, one after another. However, his momentum faced a setback around the 6th lap when he found himself squeezed between two karts, resulting in a bent steering column. Despite this challenge, which undeniably affected his speed, he persevered to the finish line.
On the other hand, Mitch was like a force of nature on the track. He navigated through the field, overtaking karts left and right. After overcoming a series of previous challenges, Mitch finally got a chance to showcase his racing prowess. Impressively, he climbed 18 positions, coming tantalizingly close to Blake by the race's end.
It was a poignant moment, seeing the two finish almost side by side, especially considering the hours they've dedicated to training and racing in unison throughout the year, all leading up to this momentous event in Italy. It was a very proud moment for Karen and Terry Corin and the TCL Apparelmaster family.
