Tom on Podium in FKS !!

Round 7

    • Qualifying: 4th in group and 5th overall
    • Heat 1: Started p4 finished 17th
    • Heat 2: Started p3 finished 7th
    • A Final: Started p16 finished 23rd

Tom said ” I had a great Qualifying. I was optimistic for a good heat, starting p4 ,but after a bad start, I was down to 15th, climbing back through the pack, I passed another driver who didn’t see me, which resulted in a penalty putting my 12th place finish down to 17th.     I had a bad start in Heat 2, and again I had to claw my way through the field to finish 7th.    In the A final, I had an average start, but halfway through the race, I got knocked onto the grass, putting me down in 30th, and a long way behind 29th. I managed to once more claw my way through the pack to finish 23rd, more points in the bag!

Round 8

  • Qualifying: 5th in group and 5th overall.
  • Heat 1: Started p4 finished 4th
  • Heat 2: Started p3 finished 10th
  • A Final: Started p9 finished 6th (podium!)

Tom commented “Qualifying could have been better for me, but was pleased with 5th.         I had a really good race in heat 1, and heat 2 started badly but I was satisfied with 10th.      I had a really good start in the A Final, and was soon up to 4th. I was pushing another driver to get up to the front and was soon up to 2nd. Then I got knocked wide which put me back to 7th but my Kart was working really well and was able to gain another position to finish on the podium.
