Oli Norris has a week he'd rather forget in CIK FIA European KF Championship

ADD Motorsports driver Oli Norris had a week he’d rather forget in the CIK FIA European KF Championship.

A trip to the hospital started things off on the wrong foot - but bad luck, crashes and kart trouble prevented him from having anything to be positive about in the second round at Zuera.

Despite the setback, the Glastonbury racer was determined not to be defeated and vowed to turn it around for the next round

He said: “It was a pretty terrible weekend to be honest. I’d just rather forget about it and move on.

“Nothing went right and it just seemed to be one thing after another.

“I’m sure things can’t get any worse, so I’m just looking to the next round.”

Oli’s weekend got off to the worst possible start when in the first session of the practice, a stone flicked up and caught him in his eye.

After seeing the medics and trying to wash it out he was forced to go to hospital to get it treated properly.

It meant he missed a large chunk of the day and although came back the next day, never felt his vision was back to a 100 per cent.

He was off the pace in qualifying, finishing 19th in his group and 34th overall.

In the first heat, Oli was finding some speed after starting 13th but his throttle bracket went, leaving him finishing last.

Heat 2, saw Oli involved in a crash which left him last, although he pulled it back to 12th by the end.

He was involved in a crash again at the start of Heat 3 but was coming back through until his engine went on the last lap leaving him last again.

And in Heat 4, another pile up saw all karts red flagged. Oli restarted with the rest, but with a damaged kart, could only manage 20th.

Oli began the pre-final in 14th and had managed to get up to 8th on the first lap when disastrously his tyre pressure went, leaving him finishing last again.

He added: “The mechanic had put too much air into the tyres so the pressure went to fast.

“It was just one of those things, but just summed up the whole weekend for me really.

“My eye’s OK, still not perfect, but it will be fine.

“It’s one of those weekends to forget and get on with testing in the week and trying to put things right.

“Hopefully things will be a lot better next time out.”
