It was great to have Richard and Winnie and all the support at the July meeting at Whilton Mill.
We had a great time testing – Richard had loads of tips for me to go faster, I can’t go into detail because its secret – haha! But it’s now much easier to overtake – #secretweapon!!!!
The final was epic – although I started 9th, I got into a train and battled it out all the way. I was second place in the train, and on the last corner I overtook the first person in the train and came 6th – it was an awesome finish and we cracked open some cokes to celebrate….
August – a double header – great weekend again! Tested on Friday, getting the set up right. Funny time when we all went out on slicks and it started raining – we were slipping and sliding all over the place. Still managed to stay on the track though, luckily it was just the practice session.
On Saturday, I did well in my heats, I started 11th on the grid in the final and made it up to 5th by the third corner – I was on fire until I hit the kerb and spun and beached myself on the grass. Watched everybody pass by #annoyinggutted Half a lap behind everyone – I did overtake the novices. Thanks to Will and Jacob coming to support, and all the Kibbles.
Sunday – brilliant in the heats again. I started 7th in the final. I was leading a train, they were pushing me to catch up with the driver in front, on the last two laps it was carnage to see who would get 5th! I came 6th by only 4/1000ths of a second after 5th.
Thanks again to everyone who supports me – next race Shenington on 14th & 15th September!
