Great result at Fulbeck
Despite not competing in the whole Super 4 championship this year, Adam took part in round 2 of the championship at Fulbeck this weekend.

It was Adam's first time back in the kart in 6 months, and with new tyres to understand, lots of effort was put in to get up to speed. Adam finished 3rd and 6th in the first two heats, and 18th in the third heat due to a mechanical issue. This gave him a starting position of 6th for the final. After being boxed in at the start, Adam soon began to regain positions and eventually finished the 24-lap final in 6th place!
10th place in the championship!
After finishing in 11th place at Kimbolton, the championship points were calculated and Adam finished in 10th place overall.
Difficulties at Forest Edge
From Sunday morning Adam was on the back foot due to controversial tyre supplies and ended up with a slower tyre than most others on the grid.

It also became apparent during the day that an integral part of the kart's structure had broken and was the cause of handling issues that Adam suffered with all weekend. This will either need replacing or repairing for the last round at Kimbolton. Despite these problems Adam managed to qualify 11th for the final and looked to have the pace to at least maintain his position and take home some valuable championship points. Unfortunately, Adam was clipped on the opening lap and knocked up into the air, causing his water pump's bands to snap. This meant he had to retire to avoid overheating the engine. In the end, Adam was classified in 22nd place and will most likely have to drop this low score in the championship. Hopefully the issues experienced this weekend should be rectified for the final round in October and he hope to be in with a chance for a top 10 result.
