Samuel Round 10 - Inkart Championship

Another exciting Sunday morning on 28 October as it was round 10 of the Inkart Championship at Daytona Manchester!  There were 12 cadet drivers which meant more heats than usual although each driver only takes part in three prior to the final.

Samuel started on pole position for his first heat and retained it, taking maximum points.  In his second heat he finished third from a fifth grid start, and the third heat he started fourth and finished fourth.  So this meant he started fourth on the grid in the A final.

True to form he had a rather good grid start and managed to get past Jordan on the first corner into third place and held of Michael Burrows.

Here is the video from the final.  It's a bit longer than usual as the race was red flagged part way through due to Jordan's fuel cap coming off.  You can just about see Samuel as he's the one in black and the lights seemed dimmer than normal!

So he finished in third place which meant another trophy (he is getting awfully close to the 10 he needs to get for a trophy cabinet (I promised in February when he won his first trophy that I'd buy him a cabinet if he won 10 trophies, not thinking he'd manage it!)) and a podium finish!

One more round to go at the end of November and then that's it for the year - Samuel is currently in second place overall in the cadet championship.
