I wasn't going to post this up yet as we are in the process of having a campaign video made, but I wanted to share this all with you
Basically, to cut very short, I used to race Karts from the age of 13-18, but since then I have not raced due to budget constraints. It may sound stupid but not having this passion in my life has been incredibly hard, and is one of the things which will bring a tear to my eyes, but I am incredibly proud to be able to announce that I am back, bigger and better than ever!
I had my first test day with Birmingham based team TCR, who are running Nic Hamilton, and it was fantastic! I was worried that due to such little previous experiance in karting, not to mention the fact I've not driven a car on a track ever!
But, in my final session of the morning I was absolutely flying, and was bang on the pace of top drivers who have tested there. This was a massive massive thing for me, and the team (who at this point, didn't know me from Adam) were genuinely amazed at how well I'd adjusted, and I was lapping about 8 seconds a lap faster than they originally estimated me doing as a new driver
The hard work starts now, I have been very lucky to receive initial support from www.alloygator.com
who have helped me get into the car, but sadly this is not on going and the campaign must begin!
If everyone could please please like my Facebook page, and follow me on twitter and await the campaign video which MUST go BIG!
Anyway, enough talking. Photos!
