Aaron Reeve’s car was too hot to handle at times during his Mini Challenge season!

MOTOR SPORT: Aaron Reeve enjoyed a heated time in the Mini Challenge series.

The King’s Lynn-based motor sports team driver suffered a series of unfortunate ‘did not finishes’ at the beginning of the season to lose any possibility of winning the championship.

A crash and a ‘moving fireball’ incident also hampered his hopes.

However, with those issues resolved, he recovered well to earn 11 podium positions, including four race wins, as well as five pole positions, and multiple fastest laps.

He showed what he is capable of in the final round at Snetterton when he finished first in all three of his races. Unfortunately, he had to settle for second place in one of them after receiving a post-race five-second penalty for a collision with a former team mate.

The A Reeve Motorsport team also enjoyed a positive time in the Cooper AM class, where Andy Godfrey gained multiple wins and podiums in his first season.

Reeve said: “We can’t wait to win the championship in 2018 in both the Cooper and Open Class championships!”
