Samuel had a brilliant race recently at Forest Edge. Here is his latest report:
Had a brilliant race weekend at Forest Edge!
We were quick all practice day on Saturday, being around the top 5 quickest all day, and looking good for Sunday race day!
We would start 3rd for heat one and after a decent start into 2nd we had a good race and finished 5th. I would start 8th for the second race. After a clean, tidy race I managed to make up a couple of places and finish 6th. For the third and final heat I started 9th and after not having the best first couple of laps that is where I would finish.
These consistent heat results put us 6th out of 16 on the grid for the final. It started raining just before we went out and everyone was on slick tyres making it tricky conditions to drive in. However I made a good start and was in 4th by the 2nd corner. After an exciting race of continuous place swapping I got into 4th position on the last lap meaning I would finish 4th and take home a hard earned trophy!
This was a good points haul for the highly competitive FEKC championship where we sit 8th out of 21 but now within 20 points of 5th. There are 2 more rounds left, next being 15th of October!
Best wishes Samuel
We are continually proud of this young man’s dedication and achievements. He looks great in our racing colours in the programme. Well done Samuel!
