Frustration for King's Lynn driver in Britisg Prokart Endurance Championship opener
West Norfolk driver Aaron Alexander and the FSR team endured a frustrating end in the British Prokart Endurance Championships.
Competing at the famous PF International circuit, in Lincolnshire, all was going perfectly after Alexander claimed pole position in qualifying and led before the change over with team-mate Kieran Lambert.
It all started to go wrong after the second pitstop for fuel where Lambert reported the kart to be vibrating.
He was forced to retire the kart from the race stopping on the other side of the circuit with a catastrophic mechanical failure, after he rear axle had completely snapped under the strain of the high-speed circuit.
This now leaves the team in a difficult position for the rest of the championship as they are only allowed to drop one round for the year.
The FSR team now need luck on their side for the next nine race meetings all over the UK with no room for any mechanical failures or accidents. The next six-hour race will be held on May 9 at the Whilton Mill Circuit in Daventry.
