After the practice day at Trent Valley Kart Club on 1 November which he enjoyed, Samuel took a trip up to Rowrah and Cumbria Kart Racing Club over the weekend of 10 and 11 November.
This was his first time racing at Rowrah and he really enjoyed the track. On race day, Samuel started 8th on the grid (from 14 drivers) for the Honda Cadets and finished 8th overall with a time of 65.53 seconds which isn't too bad considering that the race didn't start until late morning as the track was covered in frost!
Heat 2 he started in 9th and also finished in 9th but with a faster time of 62.63 - just over 9 seconds behind the heat winner. In the final heat Samuel started on pole due to the random grid placings but he finished in 10th place although setting a faster lap time of 59.26.
In the final, he started 9th but only completed 4 laps as his chain came off and he had to retire from the race. Despite this, other drivers were less fortunate and Samuel was placed 12th overall. His fastest time in the short final he raced in was 59.50.
Next weekend is a busy one - need to be in two places at once!
