Hot weather and long waits seemed to be the theme of the weekend at the Superprix, some great racing throughout and some good performances in the team!
In TKM Clubman Craig Summers had a good series of drives across the weekend, taking a win in one of the heats to line up P2 for the final, dropping to P3 off the start Craig recovered quickly to P2 but already the gap had grown considerably & so Craig settled to take P2 at the flag.
In TKM Extreme Harry Williams had a day filled with bad luck, despite qualifying P3 a nosecone penalty removed his lap time & so he started his heats well down the order. Some tough heats would see him line up P12, after a solid start and some good overtakes Harry was unfortunately taken out at the mid-stage point which dropped him to the back. Harry battled on to come home in P17 which really didn’t reflect his pace across the weekend.
In Junior X30 Katie Ashman continues to impress, a DNF in one of the heats due to getting caught up in two other drivers crashes meant Katie started further back than she would have liked in P18. A tough start meant Katie dropped right back and had to work hard to battle up to 15th by the flag before a nosecone penalty dropped Katie to P17.
In Senior X30 Charlie Grommett competed in his second X30 event, improving in every session throughout the weekend Charlie would also experience some bad luck in the heats as he would be collected in other peoples crashes. Charlie would set his PB lap times in the final as he would battle up 10 positions to come home in P15.
Ben Boby was another driver who continued to improve lap times and set PB’s throughout the weekend, Ben was using an OTK team kart for the second time and has made considerable progress on it already. Some good battles in the final would see him move up 3 positions and final P23.
Luke Boby showed good pace in numerous sessions across the weekend and enjoyed some good battles on track, Luke looked as though he could be on for a strong result in the final until he suffered an unfortunate mechanical failure and had to retire.
The team are now spending the new few weeks to conduct numerous coaching days at a variety of venues such as Whilton Mill, PFI & Hooton Park, we will also be hosting a number of new drivers as they take part in Introductory Days in which all the equipment will be supplied for them. Get in touch to check our dates & availability and book your spot with us!

A hot weekend on & off track for the team at weekend!
Zak Oates took Pole in TQ in his first ever Senior Rotax meeting, having never driven the tyre before amongst some excellent competition. After some great drives Zak would take P2 in the final.
Katie Ashman continues to show how much she has improved this season, strong pace all day would see Katie on the back of the front pack in a very strong field, P10 would be Katie’s reward in the final.
Charlie Gromett returned to TKM Extreme at the weekend, some of his best drives this season would see him pushing forward all day with some really strong pace, a great drive in the final would see him come home in P8.
Willoughby Steel competed in his first meeting off novice plates in Jnr TKM, Willoughby had excellent speed throughout the weekend, a lack of race experience meant he couldn’t quite convert into a result at this stage. Lots more to come from Willoughby and a solid P12 was his result this time out.
Adriel Ngwa had some great battles in the heats, unfortunately a huge crash in heat 2 in which Adriel was put over a tyre wall meant he sustained a number of injuries and couldn’t compete in the final. Best wishes from everyone in the team on a speedy recovery Adriel!
Next up the team are at the Shenington Superprix before a number of coaching days and Introductory days over the coming weeks! Get in touch to book your slot!

Positive weekend across the team at Shenington!
In TKM Extreme Harry Williams put in his some of his best drives so far this season, setting fastest laps in a couple of sessions and coming home P4 in the final.
Archie Styant suffered a DNF in the heats after being taken out, starting further back than he would expect he battled away despite carrying a number of issues to finish P9.
In Junior X30 Katie Ashman showed again how much she is continuing to improve, running in the front pack all Sunday and setting fastest laps along the way, arguably Katie’s best performance to date with P4 in the final being her reward.
In Senior X30 two of the competing three drivers would be trying new equipment. Luke Boby demonstrated his improvements this season with some good drives on race day to finish P9 in the final.
Charlie Gromett tried an X30 for the first time, improving each time out and steadily building his speed, Charlie would be very competitive in numerous sessions on Sunday & would come home P10 after a nosecone penalty incurred at the start.
Ben Boby tried a team OTK Exprit kart for the first time over the weekend, building confidence across the weekend and setting PB’s in every session of the weekend, Ben would come home P13 in the final.
In Junior Rotax Adriel Ngwa could not attend Saturday testing and so played catch up slightly on Sunday morning, working hard and making some good adjustments during the heats Adriel steadily improved, after a good battle in the final Adriel came home in P9.
In Junior TKM Harry Bloor would show some real determination to battle through the weekend despite not being 100%, a mechanical failure in one of the heats meant Harry had to start further back than he would expect. Just to compound his bad luck Harry was then taken out at the start of the final, battling back to P12 at the flag.
Next up for the team is Rissington for the TKM 0 plate followed by coaching days!

Quick call back to the last few weeks and some of the coaching days the team held.
A great day at Whilton Mill as we welcomed newcomers Cerys Pettitt and Jack Ryzman to their first day with us. Both drivers did brilliantly, Cerys had been out of the seat for a long time but made significant progress through the day in her junior X30. Jack had not been in a 2 stroke kart before but really came alive in the afternoon sessions in the Jnr TKM he was driving!
Harry Bloor & Adriel Ngwa both did really well in their Junior Rotax’s as they got valuable laps in and worked on some individual development areas.
Willoughby Steel showed how much progress he’s made within the last few months in his Junior TKM as he put in consistently smooth fast laps throughout the day.
We also travelled to Rissington for the Saturday practice day of their club meeting.
Adriel impressed again in Junior Rotax in only his 2nd visit to the track, showing strong pace throughout the afternoon.
Willoughby visited the circuit for the first time and didn’t brilliantly as he got to grips with the circuit in his Junior TKM very quickly!
Dan Barnes made his 2nd visit to the track in his Junior X30, making big efforts throughout the day which would see Dan make good progress as he continues to work towards being ready to race.

However more terrible luck would strike when the driver immediately in front of Oates broke down at the start of the final dropping Oates to around 7th.
