Going into the final round I carried a 32 point advantage which isn’t much when there is 90 points on offer. I qualified on the front row for the first race. Starting on wets along with Dan Clowes we had taken the more conservative tyre choice whilst Lee Morgan and Michael Watton had gone for the slick in the hope of gaining the advantage later in the race. The wet tyre helped me keep 2nd place at the start of the race with Dan in front and Lee behind. The race finished like this, thus extending my lead to Lee in the championship to 35 points. The second race was wets for everyone. I knew the championship could be won in this race, so points were the target over a win. I knew that I only had to finish one place behind lee (as long as it was not 1st and 2nd) and the championship would be done. I managed to get up from 7th to 3rd and Lee managed 6th to 2nd which meant I had done it. It wasn’t an easy race as the clutch cable snapped two laps from the end which could have put me out of the race. The third race was an uneventful mosey around the circuit just to finish the race without incident.
So, I’m the 2019 F1000 champion. I didn’t expect it at the start of the year, but I did believe I was capable. Its been a long and testing year with a steep learning curve but the support from Dad and Tony has made it all possible.
