Sandy shows great pace at Larkhall Super One - (27/28 July 2013)

30 July 2013

After being on the pace all day Friday during testing Sandy took to the track on Saturday to hopefully make it count during timed qualifying. This he did, setting an excellent lap time of 39.94 seconds giving him the second fastest lap time overall and missing out on pole by only 0.02 seconds!

Sandy starting from P2 in the first heat slipped back off the start line to 8th but instantly set about working his way back to finish a strong 4th and taking a really good points haul.

An excellent start in heat 2 from pole and meant he kept his position off the line. After a tough first lap though, Sandy was hit off of the track on lap three and fell back to the middle of the pack with a badly damaged front panel and pedal resulting in the mechanical flag being shown. After a quick pit stop and the panel quickly repaired, he re-joined to complete the race a lap down.

After being wrongly accused of causing the third lap incident in heat two, Sandy to the amazement of all, was excluded from that heat. This meant driving in the B final for a place in the finals. Sunday morning in the heavy rain and starting from pole in the B final, he went on to take the chequered flag finishing over 9 seconds ahead of the chasing karts.

A very wet track again for final one, starting from P27 on the grid Sandy drove well in the difficult conditions finishing an excellent 12th place.

Things dried up for the second final making it a tricky track with some narrow dry lines through the corners. After a good start he managed to work through the pack in front up to 5th place before putting his rear wheel off slightly onto the damp surface resulting in a quick trip through the bark. This dropped him back to 12th before finally driving back up to finish 9th overall.

“An eventful week end with some terrific and exciting racing....”

“Many thanks to all at RL Racing, SGM Distribution, Smartcomm and everyone who travelled to Larkhall to take in the action..........looking forward now to Kartmasters at PFI.”
