Super 1 Round 3 – Larkhall

This has to be our worst weekend in a long time. The first heat was done on Saturday, when I was feeling really unwell, which affected my performance. Fortunately I was better by Sunday, and we were a lot quicker. My luck however did not improve. I got caught up on the start on the second heat, and had to fight my way back from last up to 7th. The third heat started much better; I got a good start and got up to 4th but then was punted off back to last. On the Final heat the carb rubber split and this just topped off our run of bad heats.

In the Final I started 11th and did well to get myself into a strong 5th position with the speed to move forward further. I set the joint fastest lap, but things got close on the first corner on lap 14, and I got put wide onto the grass. I rejoined on the fastest bit of the track, where it narrows and unfortunately just got clipped as I came back on. It snapped the chassis and bent the stub axles. I couldn’t continue and had to retire. The results from the day are on UK Karting here
