Samuel took part in his second MSA race at the weekend at a familiar track - Hooton Park - which is the home for the Cheshire Kart Club. He'd had a good day practicing on the Saturday so was prepared for the race on Sunday.
As a novice he was placed 7th on the grid (at the back) for each of the 3 heats and also the final and the Honda's raced with the Comer engines.
Heat one he finished in 3rd place with a 43.24 second lap, heat 2 he finished in 5th place and did a faster lap with 42.62 seconds (which is his fastest ever at Hooton!) and heat 3 he also finished in 5th but the track was beginning to cool and he did a 43.07.
Despite the reasonable finishes in the heats, because he is a novice, he had to start the final at the back. Samuel made contact on the first corner of the second lap and spun off and although he managed to get going again, he had a huge gap to the next driver. He had a few more uncharacteristic spins before the checkered flag came down and finished overall as fastest Honda Cadet Novice and 6th in the Cadet class.
And here he is with his trophy:
Next race is on 28 July!
