Today we are back at Brentwood for Round 10 of the Super League. Although this is round 10, it’s only my 6th race due to owner driver commitments that mean I miss two races a month. The day didn’t start the way I wanted but I kept at it and ended up with a good result. Click here to read full article
May 2022 was the start of Brentwood Karting’s brand new Super League for senior drivers. I am pleased to announce that I will be moving up to seniors for this championship and am even happier that I have become a seeded driver at Brentwood. I will still miss 6 races (Half the season) throughout the championship due to owner kart championship commitments, but one thing is for certain, I will be giving it my all when I’m there.
Races missed due to
International Circuit Brentwood
825 metres long, 8 metres wide, limitless overtaking opportunities – it all adds up to one of the widest, most accessible outdoor go karting circuits in the country using class leading Sodi Race Karts.
Hold your nerve and keep the pedal to the metal for this smooth off camber bend. Your priority is always to set yourself up for the following turn, and, taken correctly, you can hold your speed through Range and onto the back straight.
Swimming Pool Bend
The tightest corner of the circuit and one that is often taken far too fast. Brake firmly and in a straight line and avoid ending up in the barriers at all costs.
Approach wide and set yourself up for a late apex. Keep it tight and controlled through this section, don’t be too eager to get on the gas!
Probably the toughest section of the circuit and one that sets you up for maximum speed into the quick part of the course. Avoid the temptation to turn in too early, as this will only mean losing speed through the exit.
Today Jacob raced for only the 2nd time as a senior driver at Brentwood Karting in preparation for this weekends All Star Cup. He qualified on pole, won the race and got fastest lap… so not a bad start. This also marks the start of a brand new journey as Jacob has been entered into Brentwood Karting’s new Super League as a seeded driver. This is a championship that consists of the best 22 senior drivers at Brentwood out of 77 entries. Click here to read full article
Round 6 of the championship. Qualified on pole position, made a good start and had a great clean battle with Ben Yiangou throughout the race. It was a very competitive group at the front and I like that because it pushes me to drive the best I can, I prefer to be in a group with strong drivers than a group where there isn’t a challenge. I made it into the A final, which keeps my consecutive run going.
Today is round 5 of the championship and my first one back after missing rounds 3 & 4 because of owner-kart championships that I race in. Qualifying went well with a 2nd place grid spot. Race 1, I finished 2nd, Race 2, 5th and kept my consecutive run going for A final’s over the last two seasons and finished 4th overall.
