After waiting for what seemed like at eternity to get back in a Kart I was really excited to get back to Bayford Meadows for round 1 of the SuperPro Sprint Series. There was a big turnout with over 30 drivers spread out across 8 heats – each driver would complete in 3 sprints (I was in heats 1, 2 and 8). Unfortunately this meant that most of the grids were quite small – about 11 Karts. The sun was out and it was a beautiful day.Continue reading
The final round of the championship was an 80 minute endurance at Silverstone on a cold evening. Sitting in 4th in the table I needed a good result in order to keep it. with black306mi not taking part in the final race, I was only really worried about B_Rated.Continue reading
Friday the 5th saw the delayed round 4 of the MRC league arrive at Zolder for 2 30 minute sprints. Although the track was dry it was very cloudy and cold and after a tough day at work it was going to be 2hrs hard work with all the practice and qualifying sessions.Continue reading
Under grey skies and the threat of rain, 20 drivers took part in round 2 of the Winter Cup at Bayford Meadows. I was quite happy with my performance in round 1, taking my first overall win on track and was in 5th in the championship. I knew that if Lewis and Dean were taking place then 3rd would be the best I could expect…. especially if the rain arrived.Continue reading
We only had 10 drivers for the penultimate round with regular front runners Loui and Ant not able to make it. This made it a straight fight between Jono and Graham. Graham took the pole but Jono took the win and the points. For me, it was a race to forget and a valuable lesson learned.
This is a quick section….. foolishly assuming I knew this track I spent all week preparing for a race on ACC around Barcelona. I didn’t know it half as well as I thought I did, paying a heavy price and qualifying 7th behind my championship rival Dan.
Round 3 of the championship saw us visit the streets of Tokyo for a night race on the longest trackContinue reading
After a bug in the GTSport servers prevented us from racing on the 17th, all 12 drivers reconvened on the 24th for the 30 minute race at Autopolis – round 2 out of 5 in our tour of Japan. Like last time we’d be driving the group 3 Porsche 911 RSR with an open tire choice and a minimum of one pitstop.Continue reading
With another lockdown in the UK I decided to run another championship on GT Sport. I drummed up some supportContinue reading
This was the last round of the series and not a race I was looking forward to. Prep Autopolis hasContinue reading
Under grey skies and the threat of rain, Saturday the 24th October saw the start of the Bayford Meadows SuperPro Winter Cup – a 6 round championship with the best 5 rounds counting. On the day, there were 26 drivers taking part across 3 classes – I was in the <75kg class with 9 other drivers. A meeting where I recorded my first win in a SuperPro race meeting. After taking the lead, I spent the 2nd half of the race concentrating on not throwing the win away and was so happy to finally see the checkered flag after what seemed like an eternity!Continue reading
