It's meant to be difficult. British Kart Championships PFI

We arrived at the circuit on Friday afternoon and were assigned a couple of pitbays large enough to park a truck and set up a awning big enough to run 10 karts out of, and it had electricity and wi-fi! Things were definitely going to be different. We signed on that day and picked up our wet and dry tyres for the weekend and the control fuel. Saturday morning dawned wet and blowing a gale, horrible conditions to work on a kart in as the awning is constantly flapping and things are being blown away or over, dad did a fair bit of sweaing. After the drivers briefing in the posh race centre which will travel around the country to each venue we had a number of practice sessions. These were held in

Saturday practice was spent learning the way round and shaking down the new chassis, only one bolt went missing on track so not too bad (it was the same one we lost on the original chassis when we shook that down funnily enough) Qualifying on Saturday afternoon saw me 11th quickest out of the 16 runners, we were on old tyres along with about a third of the grid so there may have been a little more pace to be gained there.
