Ultimate Karting Championship Round 1

A last minute change in the regulations meant we also decided to do this years UKC championship we did it last year and thoroughly enjoyed it so I was pleased to be able to do this years. Due to clashes with LGM it’s now only a four round championship but will still be a lot of fun as Paul and his team put on a great event 👍

Ultimate Karting Championship Round 1 @ Whilton Mill


The venue was Whilton Mill so we were expecting a decent result, practice went well running in an engine and I was still quick. When we went new tyre and race motor I was 2nd fastest with my team mate so we were very happy 👌

Grids are decided by a random draw instead of quali so you get a start near the front, the middle and the back Heat 1 started 2nd finished 1st 💪

Heat 2 started 17th finished 6th Heat 3 started 27th got taken out when 15th so finished last 😥

The DNF really hurt as we would of been starting the prefinal right up the front instead of 14th Prefinal started 14th finished 8th Final started 8th had a really poor start and dropped 3 places, a red flag then happened due to a crash luckily my friend Will was ok 👍

Race restarted but I got caught napping and didn’t capitalise on the restart nether the less I got my head down and managed to get up to 6th then I made a move for 5th that didn’t work and I got hung out to dry on the outside and lost a load of places finally crossing the line a disappointing 10th 😕

So a weekend that showed my pace is up there with the very best on track just more work on race craft which will come the more time I spend running up the sharp end with the best 💪

This weekend sees me back racing at Kimbolton for round 2 of the British Kart Championship, it’s a track I’ve only ever been to once before and it rained all day, this weekend it’s goona be hot so let’s see what we can do 🤞

Thanks as ever to my team and Jonny for the power 👊
