Today has been an extremely special day for me, and one I am sure not to forget. Managed to wrap up the 2016 F-Series championship with a round to spare at the New Jersey Motorsport's Park. It has been an absolutely brilliant, hard fought season, racing some of the best in the US and abroad. Making some lifelong friendships along the way.
I would firstly like to thank my Mum & Dad for supporting me all the way through my racing and life in general. I am extremely blessed to have such loving and caring parents.
To Sean and Jamie at ONE Motorsport, it's been brilliant working with you both these past couple of years. It has been a fantastic experience for me to be involved so closely with the development of the chassis, it truly has been a blast! A massive thank you to both of you for everything you have done for me. I am extremely proud of what we have all accomplished in such a short space of time and I will never forget what you guys have done for me.
To George and Alex at Apex Kart Sports, we would not have been able to do what we have this year without you guys, the support has been immense! You have made me extremely welcome all year, I have thoroughly enjoyed staying with you guys these past couple of months in the States, and as cheesy as it sounds consider you guys as my extended family.
Lenny at Tumenas Motorsports, thank you for all the support this week, you did an amazing job, especially considering it was your first weekend working on a kart. A steep learning curve in very little time, but truly faultless, and we achieved what we set out to do.
To my friends and family, I am extremely thankful to have such a loving and supportive bunch of people in my life. Your support has pulled me through some real difficult patches and it means a great deal to know that you are always there for me. You guys know who you are :)
To all my partners and sponsors a big thank you for supporting me and providing the very best equipment/services along the way to win this championship:
Apex Kart Sports
Iztech Karting Products
Robbos Motorsport Photography
Marbella Patio Restaurante
To Marco and everyone involved in making the F-Series truly brilliant, you have run a top show all year and it has been tremendously enjoyable! Also to Iqbal for providing fantastic photographs for the series throughout!
Lastly this past week has been extremely difficult for myself and my family as some of you may know. It was inevitable that it was going to be stressful whatever the case as I knew what was at stake. However my parents flew out to watch me race this weekend, not long after arriving my Mum was extremely ill, being rushed to hospital and then spending several days in the ICU. Thankfully she is now on the mend and I look forward to seeing her later on today.
As a family we have endured some pretty rough times on and off these past few years, but we have stuck together all the way and are ever stronger for it. So this ones for you and I really hope I have done you both proud this weekend.
Once again, a MASSIVE Thank You everyone!!!
