|Robert Foster-Jones took an emphatic KF2 win in the second round of the 2007/8 Winter Series (2 December) at Shenington, Oxfordshire.|
In conditions that most people would prefer to experience from the comfort of their living rooms, Robert won his first heat. In the second, he came from 22nd on the grid to 6th Ė in the wet and on slicks Ė to further underline his talent.
Having secured a front-row position for the final alongside James Abraham, Rob passed his rival before putting in a faultless drive, to win the race by the length of the main straight.
Foster-Jones says: ďIím over the moon. I didnít think it would happen for me. I thought Iíd come here and really have to battle. Thankfully my main rivals had bad days but when we go to the next round, Iím sure theyíll be after me.Ē
But before then, Robert and the RFM team are heading to Vendrell in Spain for the annual Copa Campeones (Champions Cup) - and this yearís race is going to be tougher than ever.
Rob explains why: ďThis yearís event has attracted a big entry and lots of the European teams have put their top drivers in Ė Gary Catt was down to race but canít now make it, which is a pity. Still, itíll be great to go up against the likes of Armand Convers, Alban Varrutti and Anthony Abbasse. Itíll be a hard race, but if Iíve got the speed to get away from them, then I think Iíll be okay. I canít wait.Ē
