Finlay Lines dominates FASTR WMKC round threePhil
Finlay was in triumphant form as he took his second win of the 2023 season in the third round of the FastR WMKC Championship from Whilton Mill Kart Club last weekend.
The Dan Holland Racing driver stated his intentions early as he went fastest in three of the four Free Practice sessions, before going fastest in qualifying to take pole position for heat one on Sunday.
The Maximum Motorsport driver was unchallenged in heat one, as he made a good getaway at the start and began to build an early lead.
Finlay claimed the heat one win, finishing two seconds ahead of second place.
Finlay started heat two from pole position and held the lead for most of the race until he was passed two laps from home. Despite this, Finlay held on to claim second place at the checkered flag.
The combined score from both of his heat results meant that Finlay would start the Final in pole position. A change in regulations meant that the Final would run for fourteen minutes + one lap, longer than the heat races previously.
After an aborted first start, the Staffordshire driver took the lead at the second time of asking. Absorbing race-long pressure from both Thomas Hill and Harry Freeman, Finlay was able to hold on and claim his second win of the year by three-tenths of a second.
Finlay is incredibly thankful for all of the support and hard work that he has received this weekend from his mechanic Jamie Dzyra, Team Manager Russell Carter and the team at Dan Holland Racing.
Neil Riddiford from IZone Driver Performance has provided constant support and mentoring and Finlay sends his thanks to Neil for all his hard work.
