Finlay Lines denied last gasp podium in Winter Warmer TrophyPhil
Finlay was back at Trent Valley Kart Club (TVKC) last weekend where he took part in the Winter Warmer Trophy, just missing out on a podium place in the Rotax Mini Max class final.
The Dan Holland Racing driver, competing in a field of 34 drivers, put his circuit knowledge to good use by setting the third-fastest time in Qualifying, ahead of the two heat races.
He claimed third place at the end of the session, also setting the fastest heat lap time in the process.
However, on the final lap, the Maximum Motorsport driver found himself airborne after contact with another driver, leaving him to finish in fifth place. Finlay also set the fastest heat lap time.
Finlay stayed with the lead group and took the lead of the race at least twice during the 11-lap encounter.
The Staffordshire driver crossed the finish line to claim fourth place, finishing just under two-hundredths of a second shy of taking a second consecutive podium finish.
Finlay would like to thank everyone at Dan Holland Racing for their support over the weekend, especially his mechanic Jamie Dzyra who will be working with Finlay throughout the season.
