Tyreing weekend

Fulbeck this weekend for the MSA weekend racing, not a championship we're involved in but we went along to keep the Tyro karting drivers company, show off the new Gillard livery on the kart which was described as a Tyro on steroids. Practice day was hot and by the middle of the day we were getting concerned about tyre wear, as we went for fun more than anything we had two sets of part worn tyres with us, the better ones were already looking poorly with blistering appearing and the outer wear indicator almost non existent on the left rear.

Heat 3, now on new wet

Apart from accidentally running in to the back of Morgan Kidd (sorry) during one of the sessions the day passed without a problem, apart from the rain. Sunday arrived dry and sunny, the Cotswolds looked pretty again. Heat 1 I started 21st (as a novice still at the back) and after three laps being stuck behind a slower kart and managed to get past and set about the rest of the pack. By race end I'd made it up to 11th with a fastest lap time just under half a second slower than the winner. Heat 2 I started 20th and was invo
