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;
Fastest Lap 01.12.071
Fastest Lap 01.11.184
Fastest Lap 01.10.971
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 :)
