Chart delighted to the end season on a high

After a difficult year, Henry Chart gave his Enigma Motorsport team the perfect end to the season with an exemplary drive to take the final Cup Class victory of the season.

After a difficult year, Henry Chart gave his Enigma Motorsport team the perfect end to the season with an exemplary drive to take the final Cup Class victory of the season.

The former- BARC Formula Renault racer got a stellar start and passed the pole-sitting Red Bull Junior Driver, Carlos Sainz, into turn one to move into second behind the equally fast-starting Tristan Cliffe. Sainz repassed in the newer Carlin machinery and Chart inherited second as Cliffe fell off the road.

He drove faultlessly from there to take his second win of the season, and he believes if luck was on his side he may have had more wins and a proper shot at the title. Instead, it was Alex Craven whose season-long consistency gave him the championship.

"I started the season well and we've ended the season well, it's just a shame we couldn't have had the car the whole year through or we might have been standing up there." Chart said.

"The car felt good but we still had a slight problem with the engine overheating but I just pushed on. I knew I was in the lead and I knew Alex wasn't going to try anything stupid because he had the championship. In the end it was a fairly easy win but I enjoyed it. It was good, I'm really happy with it."

The impressive win gives Chart and Enigma the perfect platform for 2014. Chart expects to be with Enigma Motorsport again next season, but before then his first task is to find some updated machinery. Chart has spent the year behind the wheel of a Dallara F302, five years older than the Dallaras beneath the likes of Craven, Alice Powell and Cliffe.

"I think we always knew the pace was there, but just never had the car to do it." he admitted. "Next year maybe we'll be standing on the top step and will be here as champion. If the car works well we have a winning formula, we just need to find the right car for next year.

"We always knew we could run at the front but we haven't been there."

Chart's two wins and five podiums in his 2005 car have proved not only his intrinsic pace, but that any eligible Cup Class car can be competitive.
