After the Expo week long delay excitement was high in the Webster household! Father Christmas had dropped off a new race suit, new race boots and we had stocked up thermal underwear in preparation for this first chilly meeting of 2013.
Albert was VERY keen to get going as he had like many other drivers not been in the driving seat since last November. In the first heat Albert was just getting to grips with the new position of the seat (had to be moved back due to growth spurt!), he felt his way around the big puddles and enjoyed his first race.
Heat 2 saw Albert driving really well however the race was called to an early finish after the red flag came out. Another enjoyable run. In the final Albert drove really well and finished 7th which was fantastic - we were really proud !
Ollie Owen 73 bought out his brand new kart which looks absolutely immaculate - great drive for Ollie with a 6th (I think) in the final.
Again, a GREAT family atmosphere - everyone helping and supporting these little drivers. Extra excitement due to Corben Lord bringing his Jascar down - it looked amazing ! fantastic car - see the pictures below.
We have spoken to Spedeworth (due to Mr Lord giving me some great advice - THANK YOU ! ) - and we are all set to make some Sunday appearances at their meetings - an exciting year for Albert.
Again after chatting to Mr Lord we realise Albert needs some dry practise laps in the kart so we are hoping to book him for a few hours at Arena Essex over the half term to build on his speed and technique - if anyone wants to join in please do get get in touch.

See you all on March 16th - Fingers crossed for a dry warmish meeting !
