What an eventful day. A 4.30am start as we needed to travel 90 plus miles. Dad went to start the car and de-ice it only to find it would not start. Mum to the rescue jump leads out, and a quick bit of jiggling with the cars at 5am car starts away we go. Sorry neighbours.
The weather conditions dictated with an icy track and a flurry of sleet the meeting was shortened by reducing our practice sessions.
We all got one 5 lap practice before qualifying.
This was only the second time of racing at Ellough. The regular members had a slight advantage and a couple guessed right on tyre choice.
With a good field of 10 junior drivers off we set on qualifying. I was on inters with 7 others. With a fast drying track I had to make sure of 3rd which I duly did.
Started 3rd got a great start and followed the leader around the first bend. We both pulled away from the pack. I finished 2nd.
Again started 3rd but this time I got a brilliant start and took the lead. I pulled away from the field. This gave me my first heat win in Junior Rotax.
This saw me starting in pole.
I led the race from start to finish all 14 laps.
Really excited as this was my first ever Final win in this class.
Great big thank you to Mum & Dad.
I would also like to thank my Sponsors
