Interesting weekend out at Todd Road over the weekend with the Scuderia PCR Australia team for the 33rd City Of Melbourne Titles which was named one of the largest meetings in Australia with a total of almost 300 entries!
The meeting was held from friday through to sunday so Friday was dedicated to practise with qualifying and 3 heats on saturday and pre-final and the final left for Sunday.
We managed to get the kart to a reasonable balance but struggled a bit once jumping onto a new set of tyres for racing.
Heat 1: 10th
Heat 2: incident at turn 1 dropping me to 24th but managed back to 18th
Heat 3: accident on the formation lap bent axle and slightly bent chassis but worked my way up to finish 8th.
Saturday night we all went out to dinner at Fat Bob's Bar & Grill with the guys and girls as a great opportunity to chat, relax and enjoy an amazing burger! Cary Murphy from Reevu Motorsport organised quite a surprise to present me with an outstanding Reevu helmet customly painted by Sean Carter from Scar design
Sunday went straight into a 12 lap pre-final. We made a few changes to the kart that didn't end up working out but still finished off in 15th.
In a 16 lap final I held onto 15th to the end.
A huge thank you firstly to everyone in the Scuderia PCR Australia crew for all the help and support over the weekend and all the time prior to the meeting.

A big thank you also goes out to Sean Carter from Scar Design for the amazing work on my new helmet!
Most of all a big thank you to my dad who puts so much of his hard earned money, time, and effort into karting and for supporting me and being by my side 24/7!
