What an incredible experience! We were based in the F1 pit garages in the new ‘Wing’ building.
Qualifying was tough as I couldn’t find a balance to the car, but still got 7th.
Started Race 1 in mixed dry/wet conditions but got caught up in a first corner tangle which dropped me to 15th. We then has the safety car for @8 minutes after which I worked my way back through the field to 7th, setting fastest lap on route. Without the safety car a podium may have been on the cards.
That left me starting 7th for Race 2. A good start and I was up to 4th but was hit and dropped back to 7th. I regained the ground and got into 6th and on the last lap had caught the battle for 3rd, 4th, 5th who were all together. Sadly I ran out of time but the pace was good as I was 3/10 off the fastest.
Lots to do with the car – if we can find the funds we need to have the suspension overhauled and hope that will provide the stability we seem to be lacking.
But absolutely loved it!!
Rockingham next 14/15 May.
