December Update

Hey guys!

Thought I'd just post a quick update to let you know what I've been up to lately -

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking part in the last round of the ever-popular CovKartSport championship, which was held at the Daytona venue in Milton Keynes. 
A clear, chilly day greeted a bumper entry list of drivers, & whilst I had no particular results to speak of I did enjoy some close on-track battles with the likes of Alex Vangeen & Slawek Piskorz. My results from the event can be found below;

2nd Overall
Fastest Lap 01.12.071

Race One
Started 2nd
Finished 6th
Fastest Lap 01.11.184

Race Two
Started 10th
Finished 11th
Fastest Lap 01.10.971

Race Three
Started 17th
Finished 10th
Fastest Lap 01.10.781

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Daytona Milton Keynes, and you could say the outdoor karting bug has well & truly bitten-so much so that I've thrown my hat in to be part of a team taking part in at 24 hour race there in 2018!

A few days later I was back at Teamsport Bristol to race at one of their 'Indy' events - a 45 minute members race with the added novelty of a 'safety kart' which featured whenever a yellow flag was required. During the race we had no less than four safety kart periods, and after starting from the second row I found myself taking 2nd overall (behind a staff member) after an entertaining duel with veteran driver Andy George.

Aside from the above my karting activities have been kept to a minimum lately due to other commitments. However, in the short period between Christmas & New Year I will be part of a team tackling the inaugural '12 Hours of Teamsport Bristol', where once again I will be teaming up with Ollie Bayani & Martin Savage as we bid to take victory in what is sure to be a gruelling (& cold) event. Check back in the New Year for updates!

Anyway, that's it from me
Happy Holidays everyone :)
