The disappointment of round two, Larkhall, now seems like a distant memory for Callum Bradshaw who has since gone on to finish on the podium at rounds three, four and five of the LGM series which included a win at Forest Edge.
This weekend the championship heads to Whilton Mill, a track that holds fond memories for Callum who won the club championship there back in 2015 in Junior X30. Since then Callum has won multiple races at the Daventry based circuit, but his experience at the circuit of late is very minimal.
However, this has not affected Callum so far this season so won’t be something he is worrying about. He had the same issues to deal with at pretty much every single track so far this season. The race currently falls as Callum is approaching the end of his ’summer break’ when it comes to racing in Europe and America. That gap has thankfully been filled with three rounds of LGM to keep Callum sharp with his next race out of the UK coming in the shape of the FIA European Championship which concludes at Essay (France) next weekend.
Whilton Mill should see some fantastic racing in a circuit that provides a lot of overtaking opportunities. Not only that it is argued as one of the most physically demanding, which should certainly play into Callum’s favour for a couple of reasons. First of all, his experience racing in the FIA championships and secondly his training that he does with the MSA Academy.
Championship wise Callum isn’t quite challenging for any titles having missed that first round, but if you break it down race by race he has played a big part in the championship so far. The win at Forest Edge was a fantastic result for Callum as it’s where he started his Karting career and where he became club champion in 2014. As the club champion of Whilton back in 2015 he’s certainly going to be the one to watch in the eyes of many in the paddock.
The racing is going to be fierce, the grid hugely competitive as ever and if successful Callum could be on the podium for the fourth race in a row!
