Hi & thanks for clicking on this post.
I'm 16 and started driving karts when I was 6 and since have been obsessed with racing and winning.

I work hard at ensuring that I and my equipment are in the best condition and I use what I have available to the best of

my ability to maximise my potential. To date I have won multiple championships including National Titles and will keep working to realise my goals.

Currently I race in the UK in the X30 Senior class with Jack Dex Racing and I am focusing on achieving my next goal which is to win UK & European kart series with my long-term goal being to drive professionally.

erships I have built up over the last few years enable me to be competitive against those with a substantially higher racing budget and as such I highly value those who support me, I always give 100% and always go to win!

If anyone is interested please come and follow me on Instagram & Facebook and should you be interested in coming on-board with me and my racing please drop me a message or use the 'Contact me' section of my website.

So, I don’t want to go all negative but it would be nice to have a bit of luck, just once…….
Round 3 of UKC at GYG north wales last weekend and looking to get things back on track….



4393270F-26AE-4145-9A8D-D467C86ED71D.jpeg

Tough day testing on Friday as not been here since 2016 when I was in a Honda cadet so not much of a baseline to work.from, at least I knew the way around the track though.
Ended up in the Podium ballpark but still a bit to find to challenge for the win.
20220513_172125.jpg

Saturday and two tests the Heat 1. Same story in the tests really but new tyres to come which would help.
ukc22gyg-snr-0715.jpg


Heat 1 P23 to P10 πŸ”Ό 13 places which was OK but really hoping for a few more
ukc22gyg-snr--3.jpg


Heat 2 P12 to P11 πŸ”Ό 1 Place despite making 8 overtakes so loads of work to do but the pace was looking better. Did have a seat issue after lap 1 though.lol, sorted immediately by @j_dex JDR though.
20220514_133048.jpg


ukc22gyg-snr-1119.jpg


Heat 3....well if things were not going to plan this is where the train to destination f*cked slipped in to overdrive. We were drawn in the first 3 of 5 heats and had a bunch of changes to make between Heat 2 and 3 and for the first time ever. 10ish years, we missed the grid so a DNS which is a major hit. Big apologies to Jack Dex, JDR and all that support me, this will never happen again.
20220514_100329.jpg


This put me P14 for the super heat, which I wish they'd change to prefinal rather than just another heat with a couple more points for places etc.
ukcgyg22snrmax5.jpg

So P14 to P4 πŸ”Ό 10 place gain so looked like we were dialling in nicely and looking like we were as good as we could be for the super final.
ukc22gyg-snrbw-2420.jpg


Superfinal I'd start from P21, see why I'd prefer the prefinal setup, would be a worst case row 4 start but in this configuration it was row 11.
ukc22gyg-snr-7340.jpg

P21 start to P9 πŸ”Ό 12 place gain on track and coming very strong at the drivers in front. Unfortunately I had a 5s penalty which dropped me in the results.
ukc22gyg-snr-2420.jpg

Got my exams over the next couple of months so not sure hiw much I'll be out but I'm booking up my summer coaching schedule if anyone is looking for some help drop me a line.
ukc22gyg-snr-8821.jpg

Here's a link to my onboard video from the superfinal if you fancy a ride round GYG.

If you do watch the video give my channel a thumbs up and a follow, it'd really help and be appreciated πŸ‘

Giving a little back yesterday and took my sister to where I started, Tattershall Kart Circuut so she could have a run out.
Luckily we still have some of my old kit so a nice cheap day in the sun.....


20220603_181740.jpg


I think she had a great time and for the 1st time ever, she listened to me and improved massively through the day, well done Freya, you did really well.....especially as you did nearly 3 hours in the seat and no moaning or getting tired.

Big thanks to TKC's Pete for being so friendly and supportive as you've always been since I met you 10 years ago and a great track.

Back there next weekend for race weekend with a couple of new drivers if anyone needs some help just dm me or go to my website and drop me an email.

Great stuff! Bet it's nice to be on the other end of things and not have to worry about the driving aspect of things? 🏁
