AN ENCOURAGING WEEKEND FOR THE TEAM AT WHILTON MILL

Following a busy week in Italy, visiting South Garda for SODI Factory testing, SODI Vitesse headed to Whilton Mill for round 9 of the FASTR WMKC Championship.

The team had two entered into the Inter-Max category with Warwick Mylum and Nathan Rond.

After an incident in practice leading to a red flag, Mylum could only get one practice under his belt before qualifying. Going into qualifying, Mylum started strong with consistent P6 pace, but another incident on track left him being unable to complete his last two laps, crossing the line 12th. Rond had a strong start in the damp conditions during practice, but struggling to switch the tyres on in the short qualifying period, meant the best he could achieve was 26th.

Going into the heats the team were confident they had more to give. Mylum put in two stellar performances to finish 17th and 7th, leaving him to start 9th for the final. Rond was hindered early on with a penalty in heat 1 leaving him 28th and pushed forward for 19th place in heat 2. His results combined meant he started 25th for the final.

Both drivers started the final with a point to prove. Mylum pushed forward to P8 before an on-track tussle dropped him back down the order. Still nursing an injury from a prior accident in the weekend, he remained in the fight and crossed the line 12th. Rond put in a stellar performance to push forward 9 places before a mistake from another driver resulted in Rond being pushed off the circuit. Having to start his fight over again and with damage to the kart, he crossed the line in 29th.

Despite the final results, the team look positively on the weekend as both drivers showed real potential and development in their driver ability.

We head back to PFI next weekend (27/28/29 October) for the start to our Winter testing.
