Well that is Donington Park ticked off✅ the weekend started on a high with rapid testing on the Friday and putting in a respectable qualifying for my first race back. However we then had next to no luck with the car, after suffering mechanical issues with the car all weekend. After 2 hub replacements and a overheating issue it was apparent that the car was majorly lacking power!
Race 1 the O/S/F hub failed with 30seconds left on the clock and 1 lap to go, meaning a very disa...ppointing retirement.
Race 2 started of well making up positions on the opening lap, however it was apparent within a lap that there was still major issues with the car. The car began to get slower and slower managing to cross the line before the temperature warning light came on.
Race 3 after completing the repairs to the car we were feeling confident. However after a good start and making up several positions on the start the race was red flagged due to several cars involved in an incident, one of which was rolled over. Thankful all involved were ok. This then meant we were to have a restart with a short 10 minute race. Unfortunately on the restart a hit to the rear caused the car to get out of shape and drop a few places. However I pushed the car from the back of the grid and made my way up to 13th place before the race was red flagged again due to a broken down car a minute from the end. This meant I was demoted to 14th place as it was wound back a lap.
It has proven to be one of the most unfortunate races I have ever had, and luck was defiantly not on my side! However now there is the push to make the budget to get back out racing next year!
Thank you to my dad and Tom for getting the car sorted when it was all going wrong and Tom for getting me in the position where I was driving better than I ever have done out on track!
I would also like to thank every single person that has wished me luck, given me faith when things were going wrong and just been there for support and cheering me on!
I am pleased to announce I will be racing in the season finale of the BRSCC Fiesta Championship at Donington Park on the 14th/15th October! Having been out off the seat for a year and still having a lot to learn in the ST after only having limited track time in the car last year at Lydden Hill and Brands Hatch, however I am looking forward to the challenge! I would also like to announce that I am now running with our family run team Triple5 Racing with my dad, brother and Tom...! Thank you to everyone that has made this possible! My friends, my family, Tom, my dad and Brian, every single bit of support in the past, present and future has not and will not go unappreciated. I am extremely grateful to be given this opportunity to get back out on track! I look forward to seeing some new and old faces on the grid again and around the paddock! Let's get back on track!💪🏻🚗
