Hello and welcome to my 43rd blog! I had a great race to share with you and I can’t wait until Thursday! So, yeah. Here’s another blog for you to read; hope you guys love this blog.
Last Sunday I was racing in the Next Level Racing Christmas Mania, this is their annual event and also their last event of 2022. I was so excited to race in this event; There were lots of friends and people I know racing with me so it is definitely going to be a fun race. Also, we were using a special livery for this event, we were running an ugly sweater livery theme! I saw lots of cute cars around the track and it’s so fun!
In this event we were racing in the new Toyota GR86 in Oulton Park. I never drove this car before and I don’t race that often at this track. So I spent some time practicing and got the feeling of driving this car. I had some practice with my friends Yvonne, Danny, Cameron, and Keenan. They motivated me to do better and faster, so it was nice to have them in my team.
I was a bit nervous going into the first race; I was slower during the Qualifying than when I was in practice. I started from P13 and finished at P8 at the first race. I had a really good race, got my pace, I drove pretty nice, it was a great race!
I made it to the main race. With lots of experienced drivers on the track, I didn’t expect to be in the main race to be honest. There were some drivers with over 8K iR, and I saw lots of people doing 1:51s in Qualifying. I think my personal best in Qualifying was around 1:54, which was almost 3 seconds slower. I started from P30, I just tried to do my best in this 30 minutes race. It was a tough race, but it was less boring; I had a fun race with my friend Nick defending and tried to overtake him for almost 20 minutes.
I finished at P25 at the main race, not happy with the result but this is the best I can do for now. I should feel happy with the result; racing with lots of experienced drivers, I don’t have much experience racing at this track with this car and still made it to the final and finished the race, it was a good achievement. Now it’s time to train harder and hope I can show my progress in the next event.
Thank you Next Level Racing for hosting such a great event, always had a blast racing in their community races.
