We took a week off and headed down to the Isle of Wight in-between my Rotax Championships.
We only lasted two days before we found a local kart track and Jacob was all over it. Their karts are Sodi karts similar to what he used to drive at Brentwood. We thought he would end up karting so we took all his gear.
Within 4 laps he started to match their race league times and he was top of the week and month in-terms of lap-time.
At the end the circuit owner asked us to come back on Thursday so we could race his son who is fast on their track and some of the Marshalls…. this was a challenge that we weren’t going to miss. So two days later we headed back to the circuit to finally find out who was quicker…. Jacob or their local talent?
I am very very proud to say that it was Jacob that was fastest, he beat the circuit owners son and the marshalls. He was pushing their kart so hard it eventually broke.
He ended the session 4th fastest of all-time.
