After an intense six months of competing against some of the best drivers in the UK, Zach Zammit managed to finish the 2019 Midland Hill Climb Championships in an impressive second place.
Zammit has been racing in numerous circuits around the UK since April, and completed his final race at Loton Park yesterday – the same track where his six-month campaign started.
Despite the rainy conditions, Zach and his trust Emperor Wraith had no trouble putting on a show for the crowd at Loton and even qualified even qualifying second fastest in his first run off. He then went onto finish 5th in the Top 12 run off.
Having won the first Midland class, Zach needed to win one more to come out on top. However, changes in weather resulting more dry conditions, changed the feel of the meeting and Zach finished second in his class, three tenths behind.
“I collected a total of 118 points but due to rules I have to drop four rounds of points which means I have to drop 13 points which leaves me with a total of 105 points,” Zammit explained.
“David Warburton wins the championship because he has more class wins, a big well done to him, he’s a genuinely nice guy, a sportsman and a very fast driver,” the Maltese racer finished.
Zach may have finished second, but he tied with 1st position on points and nonetheless put on an excellent performance, drawing praise from around the sport.
Well done Zach for a successful Midland Championships campaign, we can’t wait to see how you perform next year!
