Sadly due to a serious incident in Race 1 of the Pit Bike Spares Stock 140 Group B Class; all 2nd Races were cancelled for the day. But it was good to here that Nathan Gardner #254 was airlifted to Hospital and is doing OK.
To give #36 – Leo Soilleux more Tracktime we went to Lockwell Hill Karting Circuit this evening.
Not only did Leo get used to the Track very quickly, setting some great times he also got to meet Richard Cooper (BSB Stock Champion) who nominated Leo as Junior Rider of the Day at Round 1 of BMB Championships at Ellough Park last weekend.
