Hamilton Happy With Rockingham Weekend

1 Mins read

Archie Hamilton left Rockingham in a happy mood after a solid performance over the weekend.

Qualifying on Saturday saw him secure eighth and seventh place on the grid for race one and two respectively, with both these positions good enough for second in class. Hamilton studied the data from practice carefully in preperation for qualifying and certainly delivered the results.

Race one on Saturday saw him make a great start, challenging Glynn Geddie for seventh place before trying to overtake the Scot around the outside, unfortunately for the Basingstoke youngster the move didn’t pay off as he was pushed wide on to the grass losing four places as he scrabbled to get back on track.

Following his off-track excursion he pushed hard but was stuck behind Al Harthy and Bateman meaning he couldn’t challenge the leading pack. Despite the problems he crossed the finish line in eleventh place, picking up a fifth in class.

A first lap spin in the second race put Hamilton towards the back of the field, undeterred he pushed hard moving up to tenth overall despite suffering steering damage caused by the opening lap incident. As the chequered flag dropped Hamilton took tenth place on track and another fifth in class.

“Overall it's been a positive weekend.” he admitted. “I've notched up another two race finishes. I know I can qualify well now. I've learnt more about how to use the traffic to my advantage and how to stay out of trouble. I'm definitely going to Brands Hatch with more confidence. I know I can be quick and have made progress so I'm happy.”
