RL Gets Preparation for 2013 Underway

1 November 2012


Barely had the dust settled on this year’s national championship before Steve Armstrong’s RL Racing Department was back in action, getting ready for 2013 at Whilton Mill last weekend (27/28 October).

New signing Jack McCarthy delighted his new team with two Mini Max heat wins and a 4th place. In both wet and dry conditions he had demonstrated his class, but blotted his copybook with a spin in the main final. If McCarthy’s performance had marked him as one to watch next season, Sandy Mitchell's arrival on the Mini Max scene almost overshadowed his new team-mate’s. Having sat in a Mini Max kart for the very first time on Saturday morning, Sandy went on to finish 4th in Sunday’s final.

Thrilled team boss Steve Armstrong says his young charges have laid down a marker for the coming new season: “It’s easy to dismiss the Whilton race as ‘just a clubbie’ but the boys were competing against top-flight drivers, many of whom they’ll be up against next year. For Sandy to take a 4th place is very encouraging.”
