This result was all made possible by amazing consistency with 4 wins and 4 podiums in 10 finals. This makes it impossible for any one to get enough points at the last round to knock Danny off the top spot, rules dictate that he can’t be official champion unless he attends every round but at this point all he has to do is turn up to win.
Round 1 – This round was held at Rowrah in Cumbria. A windy and wet weekends racing was forecast and that’s exactly happened. With very difficult driving conditions Danny qualified 3rd and went on to take a 1st and a 2nd in the heats on Saturday and 2 wins in both finals on Sunday. This gave him 195 points just 1 point off maximum.
Round 2 – Again this was held at Rowrah but this time the conditions were completely different, with a weekend of dry weather. It seemed what ever the weather the Fullerton kart and Danny would excel at Rowrah. With 2 wins in the heats on Saturday it put Danny on pole for Sunday and a further 2 wins in both finals meant he scored a maximum of 196 points.
Round 3 – This round was held at Whilton Mill in Daventry. Nice and sunny weather gave Danny a 2nd and a 3rd in the heats on Saturday. This put Danny 4th for the first final where he finished 2nd and then went on to finish 3rd in the second final. These results gave Danny another big point scoring round of 187 points which meant at the half way point of the Championship, Danny had only lost 10 points off maximum score.
Round 4 – This round saw Danny heading to the Lincolnshire area of Fulbeck Kart Racing Club. The weather was again dry for the event which saw Danny take a 3rd and a 1st in the two heats. This put Danny on P3 for final 1 in which he came home in 3rd and also a 3rd in final 2. Another consistent point scoring round of 186 points kept Danny at the top of the Championship table.
Round 5 – Held at GYG Karting, heading into this round Danny knew that he only had to score 175 points to secure the championship. On Saturday Danny showed the pace of the Fullerton kart and Jade Engines by securing pole in the timed qualifying. Danny then went on to take a well deserved 1st and 2nd in the two heats. These results meant in both the finals on Sunday he had to finish in an average of 12th place to win the Championship. Final 1 saw Danny finish in a comfortable 4th place, this meant that he only had to finish in the top 25 to wrap the championship up with a round to go. After a shunt onto the grass at the start of final 2 Danny decided to drive a safe race and brought the kart home in 9th place to make him the SuperOne British Champion for 2017.
