February 16th and 17th saw me racing at Fulbeck for round 1 of the Fulbeck Sprint Series. With so many different classes, we only had time for 2 heats and a final.
Heat 1, started 3rd on the grid out of 12, and managed to bring it home in 4th.
Heat 2, started 8th on the grid, made a good start and after a good few battles, managed to bring it home in 4th again.
So after 2 fourth place finishes in the heats, I qualified fourth for the final.
Disaster struck as I span out on the 1st corner after the start putting me dead last - 12th.
I got myself going and set about chasing the pack down. Luckily the final was 10 mins +1 lap long, so I had plenty of time to try and claw back some places.
After some good little battles, I managed to make my way all the way back into fourth place, so I’m over the moon with that.
Well done to Brandon, Liam and Mason, you guys were just too fast for me today.
The racing was good fun, fair and competitive, I think it’s going to be a fun season with my karting pals.
So after round 1, I sit 4th in the championship.
