Jason Parrott opens his Italian Karting Season in the Rain

Jason fought against wet conditions at the first round of the Italian Championships to finish 12th in the final for the premier category. He showed pace in his heats, often being the fastest on track during the start of the races, but was let down by being on softer compound rain tyres than most of the field.

Jason started 10th on the grid for the final and quickly found himself in 6th after a serious accident, which left a Greek driver with a punctured lung. However, the rain continued and the water caused the steering mechanism to seize up and Jason dropped back to 12th. "It wasn't a fantastic race, but it was good to be out here," said Jason of his weekend.

Next time out, Jason is back on British soil, racing in the British Championships at the PF International circuit nearer home in Lincolnshire, and he will be hoping to build on his 3rd position in the standings after the first round.
