BRITISH OPEN CHAMPION!
Enaam takes abkc o plate title in cumbria
Enaam took his biggest win to date on the 4th June 2012, claiming the British Open Championship a Rowrah, in Cumbria.
The 12 year old had a difficult start the weekend, being unusually off the pace in Friday testing. The Fusionteam worked hard to get to the root of the problems, and by Saturday afternoon Enaam was back on top of the time sheets, setting fastest lap in the final two sessions before Qualifying.
A disappointing qualifying session, saw Enaam post 5th fastest time, but only 0.15s off pole despite not getting a tow and an in-balance in the control tyres.
In his first heat, Enaam drove well to put himself in 2nd position on the final lap before he was shoved wide on the last corner and dropped to 5th. The Fusion driver secured 2nd in Heat 2 to qualify 3rd on the Grid for the Pre- Final behind team mates Josh Smith and Oliver York.
On Monday’s Pre-Final, Enaam came back from a difficult start to snatch 2nd on the line, knowing that he would just need to go one better in the Final to become British Open Champion. At the green light, he was put wide and dropped right down to 7th, but regained his composure and quickly picked off the drivers in front to climb to 3rd. Despite setting fast times, it looked like the gap was just too big to close, but in true Enaam style he never gave up and on the final lap, the leaders made contact allowing him to snatch 2nd. Enaam’s team mate Josh was given a penalty for the contact, promoting Enaam to the win and the title following a stunning come back.
