Maciej Hamera is the first Polish driver to win the Super One Series. This is the historic result of a young Pole because no Polish driver has won in the 36-year history of the most prestigious British series.
The Super One Series is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious karting series in Europe. Played continuously for 36 years in the Great Britain was the racing first step of the biggest stars of British motorsport. This year we are celebrating an amazing victory! Maciej Hamera is the first Pole to win this competition!
Last weekend at the famous Silverstone circuit, during Kartmania, a great karting event in Great Britain, Maciej Hamera was officially announced the winner of the Super One Series and received the main trophy for the triumph in the Rotax Junior Max category.
British karting series have been revolving around the Super One Series for the past 36 years. The most prestigious, the best, the fastest. The karting series, in which the start ennobled young drivers, was included in the British karting elite. It was there that the first victories were scored by world champions F1 Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, as well as many other English and European drivers.
Super One has always been an unusual brand, for which drivers from the continent also looked. A few years ago, the popular S1 had over 400 competitors on its start lists. This season for the first time it was won by a Pole, Maciej Hamera. The 303 Squadron Team driver started in the junior category and proved unrivaled in his second season of starts and debut among juniors.
We have already written about Maciek Hamer on the pages of our website and Polish Karting as well as our partner title Rally and Race. He is an extremely talented driver who made his first karting steps in California. It was there that he became infected with karting, and after moving with his family to England, he continued his adventure with karting.
A driver from Wrocław, Poland this year has permanently entered the annals of British but also Polish karting by winning five out of ten Super One cup rounds and the whole series. This is an amazing feat, because among the juniors the Rotax series proved to be the undoubtedly the best, noting the most, because nine races won. Hamera, an extremely modest and humble boy in the fight for the title overtook all Englishmen appearing in this year’s Junior Max Super One Series season.
The next rounds of the season played on five different British tracks were a demonstration of the skills of a young Polish driver. The inauguration was excellent. At Rowrah Hamera he won the first race, in the second he noted the position just behind the leader. In the following he was definitely the fastest, winning both final races and winning pole position. He repeated this feat three more times during the season, at his home Clay Pigeon Raceway and at the track in Rissington, where he gave no chance to his rivals in changing weather conditions. Whether on dry or wet surfaces, Hamera shone on the track.
The final of this year’s series fell on the facility in Shenington, where Hamera controlled the situation. He made a second place by becoming the first Pole to reach for the main Super One Series trophy. In the 36-year history of these most prestigious British series this achievement has not been successful by any Polish driver yet. Finally we have the first triumphant who not only presented himself brilliantly in almost every round of the season, but proved that drivers from outside the British Isles also aspire to beat the English on British soil.
The victory of Maciek Hamera and his father-mechanic Dominik in the Super One Series is certainly one of the most important events of this year’s international karting competition with the participation of Poles. Perhaps this triumph will lead to other Polish drivers who have been in the shadows of their British rivals for over three decades.
