My first race weekend after passing my ARKS test. I had to start at the back as a novice driver for the three heats.I had a great first heat, I started at the back at number 28 and came 19th overall. I managed to shoot through when a group in front got caught up fighting for places!The next race I had to wait behind another driver before crossing the start line (rolling start) because he had a really slow start, so we were off the pack. Frustrating but thats the way it goes. I ended up 24th.My third heat I had to fight it out at the back but I ended up beating the other novice drivers and came 22nd.The final; results aren’t through yet – there was a big crash – so we had to drive under yellows for 3/4 of the race. A couple of drivers went past me during yellow flags so there is an investigation, and we’re still waiting for the results.Overall, a fantastic first weekend racing! Can’t wait until the next one – 28th April.
