Another podium at Whilton...

Another strong result in only my fifth Senior X30 race at Whilton Mill.

In the seven minute heats, I started 15th and finished 2nd in the first one and I started 31st and finished 8th in the second one. I started third in the final heat taking the lead on the opening lap only to have a lack of power due to an electrical fault so I did not finish, otherwise I would have been on pole for the final.

I was actually really shocked to be in grid position 11 once all the points were tallied up and felt I could do something from there. It was a hard but very strong race for me, finishing 4th on track, after an exciting last lap and was promoted to 3rd and a podium after penalties were given out.

Onto the next one........
