Website Update In one of Danny’s best seasons to date, table topping Birmingham Brummies earned themselves an appearance in the Sky Sports Grand Final and although it did not go quite according to plan as the Pirates overcame the Brummies on aggregate and Danny finished the season with a trip to hospital with concussion. That said, a wild-card selection in the coveted Grand Prix Challenge at Poole, an enjoyable Testimonial day when the hard work of so many people came together to celebrate Danny’s career to date, and some superb scores to end the season with a 7,46 average gave Danny a season to look back upon with pride. The meetings home and away with Peterborough were classic occasions on the team front whilst Danny posted some superb scores at Perry Barr and also at Coventry, Eastbourne and Lakeside in the latter part of the season as the Brummies pushed on for glory. A decent third place in the Leicester Freestyle Show, and a great start to the meeting in the GP Challenge promised plenty to come in season ending individual meetings. The Blue Riband at Poole, the Brandonapolis at Coventry and the Olympique at Wolverhampton were all in the racing schedule but sadly Danny wasn’t fit enough after the spectacular ending to his night in the Play-Offs. There is a long winter ahead but as soon as there is concrete news regarding Danny’s 2014 exploits we will bring it to you here on dannykingracing.co.uk.
