Goodbye Tyro Hello TKM

November the 19th saw me start my last Tyro final, 2 years in this great beginners' series saw me start 33 Finals at 4 different circuits winning 17 of them, I was placed 2nd or 3rd in a further 10 of those starts. In 2016 I was runner up in last year's championship and for 2017 the winner. More than that though I have many new friends, had so many laughs and learned so much.

Heat one saw a second place finish with Lucas in first, a drop of one point bringing our lead down to 33 pts. The second heat brought another 2nd place with Alex Tuzzeo winning and Lucas in third, our lead was back up to 34 points. The third heat saw me in the lead with a couple of laps to go when disaster struck, the chain came off!
