Leinster Karting Club's Winter Championship kicks off this weekend in Athboy. It's been far too long since my last race and I'm looking forward to getting out in the IAME X30 Junior class to learn more about the kart before next year's Motorsport Ireland Karting Championship.


November 7th 2015

I wasn't able to make it down to the Motorsport Ireland Karting Awards last weekend to pick up my trophy for 5th place in this year's Championship or my trophies from the Irish Karting Club and The Southern Karting Club Championships, but a friend picked them up for me and I got my hands on them today.

They're all great trophies, but the Motorsport Ireland one is my favourite. It looks so cool and is the largest trophy I've won so far!

September 27th 2015

I didn't make it onto the podium today, but photobombing it is the next best thing!

Congratulations to Sean McMahon on securing third place in the championship and a spot at the IAME Finals at Le Mans and also to Se Og Martin on finishing in third place in his first X30 Junior race.


September 27th 2015

That's the end of my first day out in the IAME Ireland X30 Junior class.

I started the second final in P9, dropped back a bit at the start and worked my way up to sixth place and started to reel in the three karts ahead bit got pipped at the line and finished in P8, just 4 thousandths of a second behind P7. My lap times improved by three seconds from the start of the day too.

A great way to end the season!

I just finished my first ever final in the Iame Ireland X30 Junior class.

P9, ahead of four drivers who have been racing all year and just six tenths off the lap time of race winner Sean Mcmahon who just secured third place in the championship.

Final 2 is up shortly and I'm starting from P9 on the grid.


September 27th 2015

Just about to start my first ever final in the IAME X30 Junior class from P10 on the grid.


September 27th 2015

Getting ready for first practice now at Pallas Karting for round 9 of the MI Karting Championship with The Southern Karting Club.


September 27th 2015

A good start to the day here at Pallas Karting for the final round of the MI Karting Championship with the Southern Karting Club.

I can't wait to get on track for my first race in the IAME X30 Junior class.


September 26th 2015

Today was a great day.

I have moved up from Cadets to the IAME X30 Junior class this weekend for the final round of this year's MI Karting Championship with the Southern Karting Club at Pallas Karting.

The X30 is much faster than the cadet and a lot harder to drive. It's a lot heavier than my old kart and the tyres have so much more grip so my arms really started to get sore towards the end of the day, but I'll get used to it! It is great fun to drive.

I can't wait until tomorrow for my first X30 race! With 16 karts on the grid there should be some great racing.
