CKC - Round 1 - Whilton Mill
Round one was the first time I had been in the kart since the last race of 2020. I was very excited.
This time Dad is trying to keep costs to a minimum so we took the tent down for the weekend and found a pitch on the grassed area of the paddock. We brought some mattresses we had from last years caravan and Dad slept on an air bed that kept deflating.
This is our base...
Friday / Saturday Practise
What a final it was, I managed to maintain position for the first lap but unfortunately lost one position on Lap 2 to to Number 89, however, I managed to keep with him and claw back that place on the next lap. I continued to battle with number 89, loosing again a place in lap 5 to then climb 2 places as i battled with Toby Jukes in number 39. As much as I tried I just couldn't get past Toby for the remainder of the race finally finishing in 15th out of 21 drivers.
Then came the bad part. During the battle with Numbers 39 and 12 and 89, we all missed a yellow flag. This resulted in a 10 second penalty which pushed me back into 18th. A bad start to the season but a lesson learned.
