Buckmore Park Winter Championship Round 2

This meeting caused mechanic Dad and Data Controller Mum a few headaches.

The weather on the Saturday was gusting winds and rain. We fortunately missed this as Dad had other commitments.

Race Day sunny but cold temperature hovering around 3 degrees. The track showed very ice track. Marshals gritted the shady parts of the track as the sun did its best on the rest.

Practice, Qualifying, Heat1 and Pre final resulted in varying combinations of wets and inters. The final saw as go for Slicks while the majority stayed on inters.

Qualifying was not great we were accommodating the IAME class which hindered all of us. I ended up Qualifying 6th in my class.

Heat 1 I gained two places so started the pre final in 4th.

Pre Final : Unfortunately saw me being blocked by a slower IAME and I lost a place.

Final: I choose to run slicks as the track was drying out apart from one corner. This proved to be the right choice as midway through the race I started gaining on the 4 in front. I worked my way into 2nd place only to come up against a slower IAME which cost me 2 places. With 3 laps to go I made my charge reeling in 3rd place. On the final lap I was catching the second kart only to miss out on line. So 3rd is where I finished. This gave me enough points to still hold onto the overall championship lead.
