Where do I start with ENS round 1!!! What a race that was for me. Qualifying 13th overall after 4 rounds of qualifying with 3 X10 position and 1X 11 in round puts me in the B main!
I started off in the B main clean until I received a rather aggressive overtake where my body shell was pushed under, in my desperate attempt for the body to un took I ran over the kerb before coming onto the straight before my car fishtailed into the grass. I attempted to stop at a Marshalling point but nothing was done. After being picked up from the grass I was put back down I was 1/2 lap down on the leaders. I got my head down and pushed really hard while trying to look after my tyres. When I came back on the track I thought what would Alessio Mazzeo tell me to do! He would say stay calm and make no mistake 😉 so I pushed hard making 5 minute fuel stops where as some of the other guys made 4 minutes. I was really catching up in the last 10 minutes with my tyres still in a really good state. I was able to battle with Marco (from the xray team) before I was able to under cut him in the pitstops because he made 1 more pit stop than me. That putting me into the last bump up place I just sailed home to take 2nd and make 1 of the bump up spaces. Dads fuel stops were really fantastic all weekend which was the key to almost a perfect race.
The A main! I started at the back of the grid (#12) ready for the 45 minute A main final, I got off to a good start taking 2 positions in the first couple of laps. I thought in this final I am really not the fastest and something like the podium really wasn’t realistic so my aim was to make some positions up and final the 45 minute main with the best drivers in the world! Other than 1 body took when I was racing for position which was a racing incident I would go over the kerb to make the body un took (which it didn’t do again) 😂 I had to go into the grass to move from causing a crash then my body pops out straight away as soon as I touch the grass 😂 then I lost almost 1 lap before the Marshal realises I was there. Other than this that was my only crash/mistake that happened in the 45 minute long final. Tyre changes were really good from My father and Michael Salven! Thank you! 👊🏻 and finally I crossed the finish line in 8th position which I am really happy about on my debut ENS A main final.
It was a great pleasure to race with 11 of the best racers in the world and 2 other fellow British drivers! Especially being able to drive next to my best mate Kyle Branson! That was a really special moment for me. 👊🏻
I can’t thank my parents anymore for making this happen as well as all my sponsors! With out you guys it isn’t possible!
