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.
I got up at 6am this morning, really excited for my first race (but tired)
Roads were slippy on the way, but when we got there it wasn’t a surprise that it was cancelled.
It was freezing! Ice everywhere!
Next race is at Kinbolton on the 14th April, I’m already up for it!!
I went to Kinbolton race track yesterday to take the test. My Dad and Grandpa helped me set up. I had to drive round the course in a quick time. I’d never been there before and it was wet but I managed to do it! I had to know all my flags and know how to set up the kart. Spellfame helped me, and they passed me.
I’m planning to race at Whilton Mill on the 23rd March – I can’t wait!
What a start to the year! We got home from seeing our cousins in Australia – my first time down under!!
What an amazing trip!!! – gutted when we left,
