27th January 2016
Junior X30 driver Rob Welham hit the ground running to start his 2016 season by taking his first MSA win at Shenington in tricky conditions. Due to snow on Saturday night it looked as though racing may not be possible, however after a fantastic effort by all at SKRC, the circuit was cleared and the karts took to the circuit.
In full wet conditions, Welham was instantly on the pace despite limited experience of driving in the wet. Two excellent drives saw Welham begin by taking 2nd place in heat 1 and he then went one better by taking the win in heat 2 after starting from the back of grid!
This aggregate score gave him a well deserved overall victory due to the revised format of the day.
