The RoR was so much fun last weekend I decided to go back and have one last race weekend of the season.
This one was a bit different as anything with four wheels could enter. Which resulted in a very mixed grid with everything from Caterhams to Radicals taking part.
Quite a few of the Academy drivers came along which was the main reason I bothered to go all the way to Anglesey. Racing with mates is what makes it so much fun!
When I signed up for the race I didn’t know the circuit configuration was different to the one I did at the RoR so the first lap of quali was a bit of a leap into the unknown… In the case of the corkscrew when you go over the edge for the first time it really is the unknown!
The 15mins felt so short after doing 80mins stints for the endurance race. Somehow I managed to blag a 5th on the grid which I was really happy with given everything in front of me had more power.
In the first race I managed to excel my bad start run by trying to pull away in 3rd gear. Spent the few laps getting past all the people that overtook me and ended up in 7th.
In the second race I started in 6th and ended up 7th again because everything ahead of me was a lot faster. But had a flying start. My first of the year so hopefully I have gotten past my bad start streak! Had a lucky escape on the first lap when I misjudged Ryan’s speed and ran in the back of him. Minor damage to both cars and totally my fault.
Can’t believe that is the last race of the year. Being a racing driver is just so much fun both on and off the track.
Counting down the days to the first race of next season.
