Shenington Superprix

We decided to enter the Superprix as it was a big meeting and we'd be up against the best junior TKM drivers in the country in one place. We've raced against most of them before but not all in one place. I think there were 42 entries in total so we were split in to 3 groups for the heats and our starting positions decided by our qualifying times. We practiced all day Friday and on Saturday morning.
