Hey everyone…there was a great improvement with the data at Donington last month when we raced there in Formula Renault BARC, I could really see the difference and my confidence grew massively. I really enjoyed Donny as it’s my favourite track, so I was very excited to get out there and give it everything I could.
Every time I hit the track I was improving more and more. Qualifying didn’t give the result I would have liked but even then I could see my technique for qualifying was better than ever in the car and the consistency was there.
In the first race I had a great start and was coming through the field to reach 13th place before being hit from behind into the chicane causing me to spin completely round.
After heading back on the track I decided to use this as another practice and push hard to find the limit, unfortunately I pushed a little too hard causing the car to under steer into the gravel – which didn’t allow me to return to the race.
The second and third races where very difficult as there was very close racing and every mistake made counted. It was a tough field to race in and I was gutted the results didn’t show the improvement I had made through the weekend with the help of Fortec Motorsports and Riki Christodoulou.
I am feeling very confident for the next race at Silverstone at the beginning of October, the final two rounds of the season. I know last time I tested at Silverstone the speed and confidence was really good and I hope that I can stand out at this race and get an amazing result.
I would like to thank the people from the CLIC Sargent charity who came along to watch me at Donington, it was very inspiring and I really hope they all enjoyed the day. I would also like to thank Marc Orme, Jakob Ebrey Photography, Fortec Motorsports, Michelin and the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship for helping with the charity day as it was really worthwhile.
I can’t wait to get back out testing soon and will be training hard for the next races. There’s been an announcement too about the the Winter Series for BARC at Brands GP track, it will be supporting the British Touring Cars and will also be covered by ITV. I really want to do this race as it will give me another race to get the best result I can…and I’m not finished yet!
We’re looking for anyone interested in supporting me for this race so , if interested, please contact me….
Until next time,
