That's an excellent post Martin, and while I was not at the event, I have known Canyon for over 10 years. He really is a good sportsman and a very good "Youngish" racer in his own right. I have never met Andrew, but it sounds like he has the potential to become an elite racer very quickly too, so congrats to him.

Kudos to RobPics for the TrophyGirl,

Steve

yes, not only is Andrew an amazing racer with wicked speed, the more time I spend with him the more I am amazed at his maturity. Sometimes frankly I forget he is 12 . He is an amazing driver and an amazing person.


Cheers.

It wasnt to bad. It can get hard to make a clean pass when your down on power. If you over gear it they drop off really bad. Your car really needs to be set up to carry A LOT of corner speed. The racing will be really close thats for sure. All it takes is one mess up and you cant catch up!

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out next year! But it was fun.
