A little about you..

Just thought i would start this thread so we all get to know each other and what each other race a little better. So....title kind of sais it all really!

Whats your class?
Chassis?
Championship?
Opinions?

Also, who in your championship (past or present) who you have raced against maybe when you were a Novice did you most admire and think you really wanted to be like and why?

Class:Rotax light

Chassis:CRG maximo

Championship:Wollongong Kart Racing Club

opinions:If i could race everyday i would but then go broke.

I admire a driver in my class because of his raw speed and his ability to setup a kart.His speed is so impressive that it almost rivals the times ICC karts do.Very impressive.

I am not sure what it was like there back in 92 but i think since then they have added 2 corners around where the club house is, and yes it is good track that produces some exciting races.

Re: A little about you..

Class: Junior Rotax Max
Chassis: 2001 Gillard, it's an old nail but it keeps going
Championship: BDKC and HKRC
Opinions: Great fun, obviously! Driving standars are a little dodgy at times compared to other formulas

When i started out in karting there were two people in my championship who i really had a great deal of respect for. One, Matt Skilton just for his sheer pace and determination, un-believably quick and left the field standing at times. The second, more for race craft than anything Reece Broady, sitting behind him on the track or watching him as a spectator you could see wherever he started on the grid he gave it a full 110% effort and pulled off some very hard moves which is what i noticed. Not at all afraid to get a bit of contact in though was always a fair racer.

Rotax Max/ 100 National

02 Maranello

selected rounds of Llandow club champs IE: I'm broke and race when I can

Love the rush

I admire a few different drivers. One that sticks in my mind is Jason Bird who I raced against at Shenny last year. Nice guy off track. Hard racer on.

Thanks David but if you look at the standings if you win a weekend you get about 140 points unfortunately the gap is to big infact the gap is so big my 3rd looks good for me and there is only 40 points.Plus it's the best of 7 rounds out of 8 so the postions should stand.

I'm on the verge of being in the Junior Heavys next year.
It's such a handy cap racing in the Lights there are 2 german drivers who are half the size of me and they are only competitive because of there weight.
I can't wait to move up because I have to go flat out all the time even esses type of corners beacuse when someone passes me it's userly on the straight.

Experience dosn't mean anything......
And talent.
