First Fiesta Junior Race

 

Daniels Motorsport getting JJ`s car ready

Difficult Weather conditions for the Fiesta Debut

  James drove well all weekend. He had a lot of pressure on him as he had no testing in his Fiesta this year. He done a good job and brought the car home in one piece and finished both races in the points.                                                                                   Qualifying was tricky damp track made it hard to get a good time but put it 4th on grid.                                                  Race 1. JJ had a good start, and was up to third. It had rained just before the start of the race  and so the track was very slippery, 2 car went off on the 1st lap. JJ managed to get up to second but then had a 1/2 spin while going for the lead which drop him back to 4th. With great car control in the spin and good racing he got back to finish 3rd

Race 2 : Damp but drying track. was going to go with slick but decided to go on wets for safety. Another good start and up to 2nd, tyres started to go off and car developed bad understeer, JJ slid wide on a couple of corners and received a 5 second penalty but still managed to take 4th and 4th in championship.
