Look What I Got

With all my good racing I eventually got into the Karting Magazine January 2015.

Double Header Weekend

Hi I have just done a double header weekend racing.

Saturday F6 Championship at Bayford Meadows in round 5

I got pole position in wet conditions. I won the first heat and came second in the second heat. I was pole in the final tracked dried out so back to slicks. I won my class again but unfortunately was not able to get the overall win this time. I am Champion elect for the second year running in Honda Cadet Clubman.

I planned my approach perfectly to qualify  and took Pole Position.

Heat 1 saw me lead until the last lap when another driver took a lunge into a corner only to climb over my kart and hurt my arm. I lost 2 places in the process.

Pre Final:- Started 3rd but was in quite a bit of pain still and could only manage a 4th position finish.

The Final:- Starting 4th not my best of starts dropped to 6th place but gradually started to make my way forward. The rain started to come down with a couple of laps to go I like the wet conditions and saw my opportunity and took it to move into 3rd place. On the final lap I was right on the tail of 2nd place and crossed the line half a kart behind. All in all another good weekend and many thanks to Team Anthony (Mum & Dad) plus a big thank you to Panther Motor Sport for keeping my engine sweet.

Preparing for 2015

I am building my strength up as my plans for next season are to race Junior Max in the BNL Championship in Europe. I mentioned in my Bayford Meadows post earlier that I was a little off on the day. The reason why is I had just come from a challenging Buckmore Round on the previous Sunday where I finished 2nd. On the Wednesday I did a full days practice with Daemon and Panther Motorsport in a Tony Kart doing Junior Max. I did over 100 laps. The Saturday saw me win the F6 4th Round at Buckmore Park and then it was onto Bayford on the Sunday.

Things are getting exciting as I am now preparing for the next phase of my karting career. Please keep reading and I will keep you all posted.

Catch up News

Hi been really busy since my last post with school work and lots more karting. I have had some great results over the past couple of months.

Pole At Buckmore April 2014

I am still leading the 2014 F6 Honda Cadet Clubman Championship. I am lying in the top 3 in the following championships. Kent Kart Championship, Buckmore Park Championship and Bayford Meadows Championship.

I also managed to squeeze in the East Anglian Trophy Meeting at Kimbolton on the 7th and 8th of June. I raced against some of the current best Cadets in the Country on a track I had never raced on before. I gained a lot of experience and did myself proud by finishing in the top 15 in the Sunday Final.

I am also in the process of testing out a Junior Max Kart which I intend racing next season in the BNL championship in Europe.

 

F6 Championship – I’m the Honda Cadet Champion!

I am the 2013 F6 Honda Cadet Champion!

I won all 7 rounds and will be presented with my trophy on Saturday 30th November on the F6 stand at Kart Mania Show at Silverstone. I will also have my kart on display on the stand for the 2 days. I am really looking forward to the weekend. This is my first championship win in my own kart. I hope it indicates the start of many to come – I will keep you posted.

Next Meeting: Sunday 17th November 2013, Buckmore Park. Round 7 of Summer Championship.
