We were at Anglesey Circuit for the final 3 rounds of the 2017 Britcover/Avon Tyres BRSCC Formula Ford 1600 Championship. Heading into the final 3 races I had a very slim chance of taking 2nd in the overall Championship.
It got off to an incredible start on Saturday after I put it on pole and then managed to take a lights to flag victory and get the fastest lap as well. Couldn't of gone any better, the car and engine were absolutely brilliant.
Unfortunately rain came for Sunday and we still haven't quite got the car right in the wet yet, however we have made massive improvements and after a cautious first lap dropping to 3rd, I was able to keep a fairly decent pace and took a brilliant 3rd place only 5 tenths off the fastest lap.
Amazingly I had managed to take the battle for 2nd in the Championship down to the final race, the reverse grid race. I had to start in 6th and had a brilliant first two laps moving up into 3rd place. Unfortunately I made a small mistake locking up and running slightly wide. I hit a cone and unbelievably it got perfectly wedged in the sidepod and under my front wheel. I couldn't slow down or turn... and then got stuck on the grass ending my race. Annoyingly I was in a position to take 2nd in the Championship at the time.
So we ended up 3rd in the British Championship, taking 3 wins, 7 Podiums and 6 fastest Laps. (More Fastest Laps than anybody else)
Massive thank you to Swift Cooper for a brilliant car, Barnett Racing Engines for an incredible engine and of course my sponsors Future Inns for supporting me this season.
I have 3 race meetings left this year, the Castle Combe Carnival, Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch and the Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone.
