AKA lays rubber down in the pits

AKA Rubber Pit Mat

AKA has just released their new rubber pit mat. The AKA Rubber Pit Mat is the perfect lining to keep your pit table looking clean and sharp. The mat measures in at 4ft x 2ft x 1/8″ thick. It is made of durable PVC which is chemical and water resistant, easy to clean, and features an AKA graphic in the bottom right hand corner.

The track was made up of fresh dirt, and with very little water it became an extremely rough racing surface for the competition to tackle. XRAY’s Martin Bayer would take the overall TQ spot after qualifying, but struggled in the semi final. He would start 4th in the final, but fought his way past the Carsten Keller and Team Durango’s Jörn Neumann to take the win!
