Carter goes back to cir­cuits rac­ing in OSS

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Newly crowned Hillclimb and Sprint As­so­ci­a­tion cham­pion Matt Carter will re­turn to cir­cuit rac­ing for the first time in two years this week­end.

Carter will take part in the fi­nal OSS races of the sea­son at Sil­ver­stone in the same Rad­i­cal PR6 that he uses in hill­climbs and sprints. He last raced in the 750 Mo­tor Club’s Bike­sports cham­pi­onship in 2014 and has pre­vi­ously won in the SEMSEC Sports Rac­ing se­ries at Ly­d­den Hill in 2013.

“Af­ter sprint­ing and hill­climb­ing for so long a 20-minute race will feel like an en­durance,” said Carter. “My lim­ited ex­pe­ri­ence of cir­cuit rac­ing says you need a rel­a­tively re­laxed body to last the 20 min­utes and get into a rhythm but the con­cen­tra­tion level is just as high given the other cars on the cir­cuit.”
