It was scary. My heart was pounding. My friends told me to get into the kart.
I had made it to the knock-out stages of the junior world championships in my home city of Moscow. I was the best in my school, the best in the country. Tiger track, was the name of the track I was going to face. I had no choice. I stepped in.
I was placed next to my rival, Trip Robinson. He was such a boaster. His parents always bought him all that he wanted. Every year, he had a new and improved kart. Every year, it was a photo finish. This year was going to be different. I was determined to beat Trip and make my way to the top.
The race had begun. I was in the lead, Trip was behind me. Was I going to win? Was this all a big dream? It was real, I knew it was. I had to carry out this lead.
It was the final lap and Trip was catching up on me, but it was just a matter of seconds before the race finished. Suddenly, a blur caught up with me. The finish line was only a couple of yards away. I burned every bit of gas my kart had. The race was over. I Looked up at the jumbo screen to see if I had won. Victory!!!! I had succeeded. I was going to the junior world championship finals.
I couldn’t wait!!
