I had an Amazing first weekend of the year racing at Silverstone in the first round of the National Formula Ford Championship. In what was the most competitive field of Formula Fords in over 20 years I qualified 9th in a tricky qualifying session. The first race was difficult to make progress with it being a dry line and wet offline, but I managed to make progress and got up to 6th in Race 1.
Race 2 was the best race of my life so far, it was the first live streamed event (Check the video) and I managed to pick my moments perfectly to move my way through from 6th to take the lead on the penultimate lap. Absolutely incredible race with the top 9 cars covered by just 1.5 seconds at the finish.
The reverse grid race followed, with number 8 being pulled out of the hat. I had a solid race from 8th on the grid up into 3rd place at the finish. After a great first weekend we ended up coming away from Silverstone 2nd in the Championship. A great start to the year!
