It was good getting back to my local track Shenington, as I hadn't raced there since March when finishing 2nd in the Winter Series. It was good testing my Tonykart on Saturday to find a good setup for Sunday and the Super One round this week. We looked very fast and competitive after a very progressive Saturday.
Sunday came and our pace was still good in the 3 lap warm up. Without managing to get a clean lap in I still ended up 9th fastest out of 22 drivers.
Timed qualifying was also good. There was some things I could have improved on but managed to qualify 6th overall which we were happy with. This meant that for both heats I would be starting 6th.
Both Heats weren't very good for me, unfortunately finishing 16th in Heat 1 and 14th in heat 2 after lots of contact resulting in me losing lots of places and struggling to find a race setup. This meant I would only be starting from 16th for the final.
We made a radical setup change for the final which ended up being extremely good. In the space of 5 laps I was already in 10th and catching the front runners, but then lost lots of power and eventually my engine seized resulting in a DNF.
Would like to say a massive thanks to both my Dad and Grandad for working well on the kart this weekend, Brian Cole and everyone at Flex Motorsport, Will Cooper for doing further physio to get my shoulder better for this weekend, Marie at Winning Health for acupuncture, and iZone Driver Performance for the training and preparation towards my karting.
Next up: Shenington Super One.
