Round 10 of the Manchester and Buxton Kart Club Championship and it certainly felt like October! Random grid placings meant that Samuel started heat 1 in 5th place for the Honda's and he uncharacteristically finished at the back of the heat for the Honda's.
Heat 2 wasn't much better and he finished 4th for the Honda's and 11th from 14 overall. The weather was not helping the track and it was wet in patches, however it remained that way and heat 3 Samuel finished as 4th Honda again and 12th overall.
He finished marginally better in the final with a 4th place from 6 for the Honda's and 11th overall as the grid was mixed with Comer engines.
Although it wasn't a podium finish, Samuel gained some valuable Championship points and is 2 points adrift from third place and is currently leading the Autumn Series after 2 rounds with one more to go at the end of November.
So its all still to play for!
Next kart time is 1 November when we take a trip to Trent Valley Kart Club and the PFI circuit to have a practice day. Usually lots of Honda's and a new circuit to get to grips with - should be interesting!
