The moment has arrived: After years of racing, I sit atop the leaderboard for the first time in my life! I’ll never forget this weekend as we stopped nothing to ensure a win on both races. Fastest lap and hard-fought victories! The team’s celebration was well deserved. We’re on top of the world.
There are moments in your career when you’re just so proud of what you’ve accomplished. This is one of those moments for me.
I started off strong with pole position in qualifying, and then went on to win both races. In the last race, my main competitor and I were battling hard but fair, which is where I pushed him into his spin. This helped me take the lead and eventually win the race – although positions swapped throughout the race, I stayed ahead of my opponent until he retired.
I want to thank everyone involved with this victory: especially my team members who celebrated nicely with me after the second race. What an amazing job you guys have done! Also a big thank you to my supporters afar from all over the world: USA, China, India, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Canada, South Korea, UAE, Honduras and so many other countries but of course it goes without saying Europe & Morocco!
We fought hard until our competitor made a mistake and we were able to take the lead. Even though they were able to regain their position, we held on to win it all! The whole team celebrated nicely—we’re over the moon with our result!
WOW I can’t wait for the next round!
Hard work and dedication paid off. Thank you to Elite Motorsport, Rich, Robert & Jack for putting up with me. Adam for highlighting my weaknesses & Chris for applying the required cool down speech. First from start to finish was a nice feeling on track. But by no means was it a walk in the parc. Started on pole position in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge AM. A twitchy start although somehow without contact. Pre determined strategy worked well. I then got too comfortable and eased off too much; enabling Bal to have a shot. But I held on from the seat of my pants.
From the first corner of the grid were two fierce rivals: (White) and (Sidhu). Both drivers pushing for wins, so everyone knew what was at stake here! We are also competing against each other for places in the championship and a spot on the podium.
At the green light I got away cleanly while White seems to struggle to get his tires up to temperature or having to defend hard. Meanwhile Bal continued to chase until he cought up with me but couldn’t make the pass.
Can we replicate this story tomorrow? Nobody knows…
