Josh happy with pace

Saturday saw Josh taking to the track for Rok Regional Round 4. Josh was very upbeat on Saturday morning going into qualifying hoping to secure a top 5 position. His pace was good but not enough to crack the top 5 with the kart having some under-steer. This put Josh 6th on the grid but only 0.4 of a second away from pole. With the team making a slight setup change to take care of the under-steer it was on to race 1 which saw Josh pushing hard the whole race. He was rewarded for his hard work with a 4th in race 1. Josh was pleased with his pace knowing that he had given it his all. Race 2 was a race long battle with the front 5 swapping places on every lap. At the fall of the flag Josh took 5th across the line but he was only 0.6 away from the race winner. Josh was happy with the result knowing that he has the pace to keep up and challenge for the lead if the opportunity presents itself. Race 3 saw Josh taking another 5th position with a small gap to the front runners. Josh pushed hard to close the gap but was unable to close the gap having to settle for 5th in race 3. That was also his overall for the day. 5th on the day was not a clear indication of just how close the racing was until one looks at the overall points standings with Josh scoring 85 and 3rd on 86. Josh was very happy with his days racing knowing that his hard work is paying off with excellent results. Josh will now be preparing for Round 3 of the Rok National at the end of June in Capetown where he hopes to challenge the front runners but a top 5 is the goal which will be difficult but Josh is ready for the challenge.
