Round 1 – Super One Series


Friday practice in the Super One saw Danny setting some very impressive and consistent lap times under extremely difficult wet and windy conditions.

The racing format for Saturday consisted of one practice session followed by timed qualifying and two heats for each of the 61 drivers entered. With so many drivers getting the right track position in group qualifying was going to be vital.

In a wet qualifying Danny set the fastest time in his group.

Starting on the front row Danny got off to a good start and slotted into 2nd place where unable to find a way past the leader he stayed until the chequered flag.

Heat 2

Once again Danny tucked into 2nd place at the start before making his move on lap 3  to take the lead and a convincing win also setting the fastest lap.

Sunday consisted of two finals. Saturdays win and 2nd for Danny meant he had to start from grid 3  for the first of Sunday’s finals.

Final 1

In still very wet conditions Danny had gone from 3rd to 2nd within a lap to slot in behind the leader. Half way distance Danny made a decisive committed move to take the lead and the win. He also set the fastest lap time.

Final 2

Starting pole and with the rain easing and the track conditions changing  it was going to be a challenging race for Danny but a great start saw Danny lead the race from start to finish.
