Bayford Meadows Winter Championship – Round 1, 24th November 2013

A good field of 18 drivers for the Honda Clubman.

Qualifying again this was not great I only managed 12th and was off the pace.

Heat 1 :- 8 laps Starting 12th from the start I put in a good race and made up 2 places but ran out of laps.

Heat 2 :- 8 laps Starting form 8th I really pushed hard and again made up another 2 places. The final grid positions were an average of these two races which put me 9th for the final.

The Final 12 laps – Saw me start in 9th I drove the best race ever so far at the Bayford circuit. It took a couple of laps to warm the tyres and then the overtaking started I made up 2 places over the next 2 laps. Now lying 7th I pushed on and again made up 2 more places over the next 3 laps.

Now in 5th with a large gap to 4th I pushed closing the gap on every lap until the last lap signal. I still had some work to do but coming out of the last bend and up to the rise I made my move to finally finish 4th and a podium place.
