8th March 2009 Club Meeting Kimbolton

Biggest entry of cadets Kimbolton has seen for some time 68 entered. 2 out of 4 heats to count.Jacques is drawn to start 9th in Heat 1, By the end of lap 1 Jacques is 4th but obviously quick his team mate Toby Sowery is in 3rd, together they are working well to put pressure on Alex Gill in 2nd, Alex deposits the leader Llando on the grass to take the lead , Toby overtakes Alex , so Alex deposits Toby on the grass in the same place, this leaves Jacques and Alex, Jacques goes for the win on the line but Alex just pips him to it.

Jacques is drawn 23rd in Heat 4 next, he gets a great start and makes up several places on lap 1, then lap by lap takes another making up 15 places to finsh 8th.

So Jacques has earned 5th place on the grid for the A final, fantastic considering how many cadets and the quality of the field, by the end of lap 1 Jacques is 2nd but with changeable conditions the kart wasnt setup perfectly for the conditions and Jacques struggled with grip and had to give way to 7 of the best drivers but still a great finish of 9th , basically finishing in the top 10 in the country for the 3rd time running.
