The last three races have flown by! I’ve been pushing hard to get off my novice plates (because this means you have to start at the back of the grid) – and finally on Sunday I completed my fifth race as a novice, and now I get to start at the front, middle and back over three races to qualify for a start position for the final!
So Kimbolton in May, I won the novice trophy!
Then at Whilton Mill two weeks later, I got taken on the final bend and came second – I was gutted!!
My final novice race at Rissington last weekend… I did really well in two of the heats and OK in the third one which meant I started in 11th on the grid for the final. Once again there was a pile up on the first corner but it was behind me so although we drove under yellow flags for two laps it didn’t affect me. I had lots of fun in the final racing hard and came over the line as first novice! I was gob smacked when I saw the trophy – it was huge!
This was the first weekend that Rissington were starting a special memorial novice race and part of the prize was a new set of slicks too!
Thanks for reading; my next race is back at my club Whilton Mill on June 23rd. I’ve already put my yellow plates on – I can’t wait!
