Over the winter months Chris and Ed Bridle have been busy undertaking a lot of testing, getting ready for the summer and making sure they are on the front foot ready for the start of the season. The boys have been competing in the Buckmore Park Winter Championship and they also took part in the Gerry Lilley Cup at Bayford Meadows in which Ed took first place with a comfortable win.
On 12th March the boys attended the Buckmore Park awards in which Chris collected the Senior X30 Summer Champion trophy and his award for 5th place in the Kent Champs.
Looking ahead to the summer, Chris & Ed will be competing in the Buckmore Park Summer Championship and also the PFI Summer Championship in Lincolnshire. PFI is known as the home of British karting and attracts the best drivers in the country, with grids of up to 60 drivers. This will put Chris and Ed up against the best drivers in England!
New recruit to the Firmin sponsored karting team, Alfie Brooks, participated in the Honda Cadet Clubman (HCC) class. He didn’t get away to the best start and the race saw the lead change hands several times. However, while all this was going on, Alfie was steadily making his comeback drive which was nothing short of awesome. His competitors didn’t see him coming and he slipped ahead on the ninth lap and went on to take victory by less than a second.
Well done Team Firmin!
