Round 8 of the Cheshire Kart Club Championship took place on 8 September with 13 Honda drivers in total. This was Samuel's first race off his Novice plates and with the random grid positions for the three heats, he was placed on pole position for the first heat! He dropped 7 places and finished 8th just 1.6 seconds behind the heat winner.
Heat 2 and heat 3 were better, starting in 6th place for heat 2, he made up 2 places and then three places in the third and final heat. He was placed 7th on the grid for the final and maintained the place.
So no podium finish but it was a good race and experience starting within the pack rather than at the back as a Novice!
No blog post is complete without a photo so here is one of the stickers we bought from I Say Ding Dong - just so that the other drivers know who he is!
Next race is 22 September at Manchester and Buxton Kart Club!
