    Default Spoons VXR Driver of the Year Pics

    Well it was all over in 15 minutes today.... VXR Driver of the Year escaped both my grip and Tony's (Caterman).

    Here we are both before the race (I'm on the left) and Tony is on the right... pretending to be the STIG !!



    Here are our groupies....



    Here's me getting some last minute technical advice from Mark (GSi3.2)



    Heres Tony getting to grips with his hairnet....



    ... er.... not quite Tony...



    Here we are trying to chill before the race....



    Tony.... still not convinced with his hair net....



    ... and here we are lined up ready to go. I'm in Kart Number One (position 8 - Silver Crash Helmet) and Tony is in Kart Number Nine (Position 9)... just behind me !!



    Here we go.... this is me....... I managed to get from 8th Position to 3rd Position... chasing two very quick chaps up front !!... both were doing 1 minute 10 second laps.... I even managed to lap 4 Karts as well !!



    Chatting with Mark and Dean.... boy it was tough out there !!



    ... But I made Position Number 6th in the Final Grand Prix and Vauxhall Television wanted to interview me !!.... that was really good fun !!







    I'm Steve Lloyd and here is my position on the grid.....



    But alas, it was not to be.... during the next few races, better drivers stepped up to the mark and I got driven off the leader board by 1/10th of a second !!!.... 1/10th !!! - it was really nailbiting watching the leader board and my name sliding off the end...... by 1/10th of a second....

    But it was a great day enjoyed by all !!.... even if I did get the p!ss taken out of my Sparco boots

    I know i had a laugh and considering i have been in a kart twice in my life to finish 4th was not too bad. I was getting faster with every lap but ran out of time as i was getting used to the track.
    Maybe with a bit of practice i would have done better

    Not to worry, at least i didn't come off the track once but had to avoid a few that did
