With the last chance qualifier for the fastest growing motor-sport competition, Danny and wife Danielle headed to Denmark to take on the Danish drivers in FuelTopia’s Barrel Sprint. With just the two race cars and a support vehicle on the long road trip from London to Denmark the confidence in cars was high as they drove the vehicle’s, competed and then drove back! With Vortex Exhaust Systems sponsoring the husband and wife team, Danny and Danielle have both had Vortex Race Flow exhaust systems fitted, both drivers feel and see the performance difference from their old straight through systems.

Saturday was great to set up and practice with Danny coaching Danielle as this was her 2nd time out on track. With a sunny start to race day which flew quickly into battles, all bets on as Danny set the bar at practice laying down a time of 19.8 seconds and still keeping the fastest time of the day.
Going into the qualifiers he managed to keep that record going and qualified 1st overall boosting him to the top of the table with a bye and putting him straight through to the top 8 battles. Following suit with great training Danielle qualified to top 13 but sadly got knocked out in round 1.

Danny successfully knocking out Monster Energy sponsored Rick Van Goethem in the semi’s with a storming time of 19.9 seconds closely followed bye Rick’s 20.3s.

The time had come and now its the finals, Martin Hjermitslev had proved that he deserved to be there as he was second fastest all weekend but Danny being that little bit more advanced in the series kept his cool and managed to take the win he was first out of his car to congratulate Martin. Danny said “The guys from Denmark certainly brought their ‘A’ game and the battles were tough, I cant wait to be back in seat racing against them in the near future. Thanks for making the weekend at Motor Festival a blinder”
