Rowrah Super One rd1 – Top 10 in large super strong grid

Jack had a super solid first round at the Super One nationals. The circuit was Rowrah in Cumbria and the weather was wet, very wet. After nearly three years out of karting and only starting to test at the end of last summer, it was  a satisfying one. Good qualifying and heats, grew into solid points all weekend. Top 10 in the final, leaving Jack in joint 7th in the Championship, the karting “hobby” away from the rally preparation has started well.

Jack had a good result at the Hunts Kart Racing Club at the weekend, finishing 7th out of a strong field in the Senior X30 class.
