Academy racers continue to shine in the British Kart Championship
02 Aug 2012
Round four of the British Super One Series Kart Championships took place last weekend in Glan y Gors Park in Wales with the Sahara Force India Academy racers back in action.
Jehan Daruvala was the leading Academy racer as he finished a strong fourth in the first final on Sunday afternoon. For the second final he missed out on repeating that performance when he was forced off the track by a rival.
Teammates Tarun Reddy and Arjun Maini showed improved speed, with Tarun taking a top ten grid slot and showing competitive laptimes during the races.
The Academy racers will be back in action on 18th and 19th of August at Rowrah in Cumbria for the fifth round of the British Championship.
Academy driver coach and mentor, Terry Fullerton said: “Jehan again showed good speed across the weekend. He qualified well for the first final and finished fourth in the race. He was unlucky to be taken out by another competitor while in a very strong position in the second final. Tarun made good progress with his qualifying speed and was just a few hundredths of a second behind Jehan, but he was unable to realise his potential in both finals.”
Jehan Daruvala: “In the first final I started seventh and fell back two positions at the start. But I felt confident and was able to challenge the drivers ahead, so I gradually made my way forward. By the end of the race I was up to fourth place, which was a great result and gave me a big boost. In the second final I was running fifth when the karts ahead of me touched and I got caught up in their collision. It was a disappointing end to what had been a very strong weekend because I was well placed to challenge for a podium finish.”
Tarun Reddy: “I managed to qualify ninth for one of the races, which was my best starting position yet. In the heat I started well and was up to fifth until I got bumped off the track and finished at the back. For the finals I suffered with poor starting positions and although I was able to set quick times, the races didn’t go my way.”
Arjun Maini: “It was a disappointing weekend for me and I couldn’t really get up to speed on this track. Sometimes things just don’t go your way and I think this was one of those weekends. I struggled in the rain and I had some contact in the races, which hurt my final results. I was 16th in the first final and 20th in the second. I will work hard to do much better next time out.”
