A great start to the F1000 season with two second places and an eighth. The first race I came away with the fastest lap and was only 0.06s from the former world karting champion Colin Brown as we crossed the line side by side. The second race I had a loose diffuser which had a surprisingly large effect on the performance. A mistake by me made the situation worse as I lost 2 places running wide due to the lack in rear grip. The car back on form in the third race I made my way back up to second from starting fifth, on the way making a beautiful pass around the outside of Druids. The performance from this weekend has built up my confidence with the car. improvements can be made for the coming round in Silverstone where I hope to stay at the sharp end of the grid.
The first time back in the driving seat since last year and off to a good start. The developments made to the car make it much more driveable, helping me push the car harder than before. The qualifying did not go too well with a hose coming loose from the turbo. Starting from the back row I was up to 6th at the end of the first lap then 4th a few laps later ahead of all the other class B cars with only the class A in front. Finishing in 3rd as a car ahead retired was a great achievement first time back. The second race I started in 3rd. Running 2nd the leader spun off resulting in a safety car. This allowed the class A Holden Commodore to get on my tail and after a few laps of shrewd defending I was back in 2nd. An issue held the car back for the last few laps and limping down the last straight I was passed and finished 3rd. A promising performance which gives more momentum for the rest of the season
