It’s back to back race weekends for us following on from a successful championship race at Lydd last weekend. This time we were at Bayford Meadows for Round 4 of the BMKR championship and Round 2 of the Kent Cup Championship.

Front row start and 2nd place on the podium

This weekend was the third round of the IKR Rotax Junior Championship at Lydd Kart Circuit. The weather was perfect all weekend and as always the Lydd Track looked stunning and I couldn’t wait to get out there and put some laps in. Saturdays sessions didn’t fully go to plan with the kart not behaving itself. I qualified on the front row for heat 1 in second which was my best grid start. The race start went well and once I managed to warm up my tyres I was hunting down the leader. Click here to read full article
