|Jordan Chamberlain made the second round of the UK Winter Series at |
Shenington a weekend to remember with second place after making two
comebacks from positions that looked extremely unpromising. In only
his second race in Senior karting Jordan was second only to the
championship leader who has a year's more experience.
After a strong finish in the first heat, where he started from the
front end of the grid, Jordan came through from 20th to sixth in the second heat before engine problems forced him out. Despite his
disappointment, he was delighted to have made up 14 places in the
short eight-lap race and knew he would be able to get to the sharp
end in the final.
He started 10th in the final after the non-finish was taken into
account, but the race start was delayed when officials were unhappy
with the rolling laps and called a halt. After the restart Jordan set about gaining places on the track that was by now dry, and moved up
to fifth by lap seven.
After that things got slightly heated at the head of the field and
Jordan went through to third when another competitor went wide at a
chicane. He then pressured the second-placed driver into a mistake
but unfortunately race and championship leader Robert Foster-Jones
was too far away to catch by the time Jordan had a free track in
front of him and he had to settle for second.
His next race is the third round of the Winter Series on 20th January
at PF International in Lincolnshire, but Jordan and his family will
be using the Christmas break to look for sponsorship to enable him to compete on the international stage in 2008. He has already had offers from several teams, but more funding is definitely required to help
Jordan progress in his racing career.
