100% Winning Streak Continues For Mackenzie Taylor

press release

Mackenzie Taylor is celebrating after taking another superb ABKC Winter Series win in the third round of the series at PFi, Lincolnshire last weekend (20 January).

The Ricky Flynn Motorsport (RFM) driver Mackenzie has become the driver to beat in British KF3 following Sunday’s win and his previous Winter Series victories at PFI (4 November) and Shenington (2 December).

Having qualified on pole, he survived the opening corner exchanges – including Aaron Sherlock’s airborne kart clouting him on the shoulder – to swiftly pass John Norris and Nick Christofaro, before delivering a text-book drive to the flag.

Mastering the tricky conditions, Mackenzie went on to win by 11.87 seconds from Ashley Sutton.

“It was very greasy and slippy all over the track” he explained afterwards. “There weren’t really many dry lines even though it looked like there were. Once I got into the lead it was a case of just making sure I pushed and got the laps times in.”

Despite his 100% win-rate in the Winter Series, Mackenzie will not be around to defend his championship lead in the final two rounds: “My next race is the Winter Cup (at Lonato, Italy 14-17 February),and that clashes with the 4th round. After that, we’re doing the Margutti Cup (Parma, Italy 7-9 March) so I think any hope of winning the Winter Series has gone but it’s all good practice for Super 1” he grinned.

“The whole team had everything perfect today” he said, ascribing his success to a collective effort. “Gordy at Gordon Finlayson Racing got the engine spot-on. Ricky (Flynn) and my mechanic Bryn (Nuttall) had the kart working brilliantly. In fact, the whole team were preparing my kart - everyone helped and chipped in – it couldn’t have been better set-up!”

Prior to his WSK (Winning Series Karting) debut, Mackenzie will spend the rest of the week testing at La Conca, Italy - which will host the opening round in March (13th-16th).
