After @Brotiform and I had such a great race last year, bringing our kart home for a win, I was itching to get out on the track again and improve on my competitive driving. Unfortunately, Brotifrom ran in to some issues and couldn't make it yesterday, so I arrived for Team Tonsil on my own. I obviously couldn't do the race on my own but the club chairman, @IanF came to the rescue and offered the services of two committee members, Wes and Chris, which I quickly accepted as I was just keen to get on track and race. Unfortunately, I pulled kart number which, which although it turned out to be a fast kart meant I was starting from the back of the grid, in 9th place effectively.
I had the third fastest lap on the day, behind James and Jody, and as a team we managed a fourth place which considering we started from the back row and Wes and Chris weren't planning to race, I was happy with. I wish Brotifrom could have made it but I had fun none the less and must give a big thanks to Ian, Wes and Chris for pitching in and allowing me to race. I can't wait for next year, I know a few area's that I can make up some time, so I can chase James and Jody down. It was also great seeing a lot of old and new friends, catching up, having a laugh, etc. So a big thank you to the club and it's committee for organising the event and keep up the great work.
Thanks for spot nick, I had some great fun, although it being my first time, I didn't do too bad I hope, I however have lots of practice to do and will absolutely be competing next year.
It was fun sliding around corners although that not being the fastest method to go around a corner.
