New season countdown : 46

The countdown to the new season continues… only 46 days to go.

46

Karl Gilbert from King’s Lynn had raced F2s before becoming one of the top drivers in the Saloon Stox formula, but for the 2002 season he moved into F1. With an always immaculately presented car and a superb sounding big block Chevy 540, he won quite a few heats, consolations, and GNs, all on shale.

He initially raced as number 295, but in 2007 he switched to 46, which was closer to his saloon number of 43, and took a career first Final win in front of a massive crowd at his home track on the Friday night of the 2007 World Final weekend.

Unfortunately, the time and effort of maintaining an F1, plus the travelling to distant meetings, took its toll, and Karl returned to the Saloons.
