Eddie insists that he has put the disappointment of the 10 Hour du Var race behind him and is completely focussed on the rest of the season.
The IMSD Racing team suffered their worst race in their history after a weekend of appalling luck. The whole team were downbeat after the race but Eddie has said that everyone will have forgotten about it this weekend and will be focussed on the job in hand.
“I don’t dwell on the past and I know that most of the problems we had in France were just down to an unnatural amount of bad luck. To be fair we have had some good fortune at Spa for the last couple of years so I guess it was inevitable that it would come back and bite us in the arse at some stage.
“Fortunately du Var isn’t part of the championship, which is what we really have to focus on. We are currently 7th in the standings and are best of the rest behind the top teams. To be honest I think we would be hard pressed to get much higher than that so we just have to focus on consolidating our position.
“Clay Pigeon is one of my favourite circuits and I think we all go fairly well there so I’m hoping for a good result. As long as we get the kart sorted and we don’t have any bad luck I think we can do well.”
This weekend will be a busy one for Eddie as he is also competing in the Daytona 500 on the Sunday. Although excited about the race, he refused to make any predictions.
“I can’t really say how well I think we’ll do. I don’t know what the karts are like, I’ve never been to the circuit before, I have no idea what the competition will be like or even how many teams will be there. I’m really just going there to have fun and to hopefully make a good impression on the team because that always opens doors.”
