Little Green Man at Glan Y Gors Park Karting Circuit – Freddie Slater

Little Green Man at Glan Y Gors Park Karting Circuit

Off the back of a solid podium at Whilton Mill Super One, Freddie was prepared to continue his good form at the equally competitive Little Green Man series. In typical style Wales delivered a mixture of weather at the Glan Y Gors circuit. Laying 8th in the Championship Freddie was aiming for a good points haul to jump up the table.

Saturday practice went to plan as the team tested equipment although in the changeable conditions throughout the day. Not having done a lot of testing previous at the track, it was good to see Freddie in the top 5 fastest of the day. Happy with the pace the team prepared for race day on Sunday with a dry forecast on its way.

Heat 1 went to plan and Freddie climbed his way from 21st on the grid to 7th. The day turned when Freddie was in 4th place and contact on the last lap put him off the track on the grass; crossing the line 29th was detrimental to Freddie’s final starting spot. Again starting on grid 21 in heat 3 Freddie progressed to 9th position with solid overtaking in the competitive mixed grid structure.

Starting 14th for the final it was always going to be a challenge for Freddie to get to the front. The first 5 laps went perfectly as Freddie amazingly got himself to the top 5. As the front two got away Freddie battled to 4th and was looking on for a potential podium. The last few laps didn’t go Freddie’s way as he got pushed out wide too hard to be able to defend his position. Crossing the line 9th was disappointing to Freddie and his team but he showed strong pace in the final however the close cadet racing doesn’t always go to plan.
