British Championship Test
Monday, 31 March 2008 21:53
After an exceptional start to the 2008 season, 3DR headed down to Clay Pigeon in Dorset to test for the upcoming British championship season opener. With only 2 chances to test on the programme before the March event, there was an extremely strong grid, including 3 former British champions, and the 2007 Vice British champion. Another dry, cold weekend allowed the team to do a lot of testing work, and find a balance with the chassis. Saturday night saw us go back to the hotel happy, as one of the fastest throughout testing on both Friday and Saturday.

On Sunday, one bad heat put driver Danny Russell on grid 5 for the final, but with aggression and ability Danny fought to 2nd in the final. Danny said after the race; ‘We found a good setup with the kart, and seem to have improved power this season compared to the top teams. Unfortunately a bad heat put us back on the grid a bit, and once I had managed to get into 2nd, Chris Lock had got away and it was too late to catch him’.

A solid performance by all, and a good result. Most important of all, the team confirmed their pre-season thoughts;
‘Danny has proven this weekend to us that he can fight for the British championship. He has consistently shown pace above all but one of his rivals here at the Clay test, and this leaves us confident going into the season opener in March. The chassis’ and engines seem to be spot on this year, so thanks to Paul Carr Racing for their continued support,’ said Team Manager Tom Smith after the weekend.

With the job done, the team head back to base to prepare for the opening round of the Shenington Club Championship next weekend.
