Double R Racing‘s team boss, Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt talked about the mixed fortunes for his team at Rockingham. The crew managed to score only four points, their worst total since Donington Park.

Having achieved a clean sweep of podiums at Knockhill, the team will be disappointed to have come down to earth with a bump. For regular driver, Zane Goddard, his three points saw him drop behind Alex Quinn in the championship and further stretches his odds of a top five finish. His tenth place in the second race had only been gifted to him after James Pull‘s disqualification.

Rockingham though did see a return for Carrie Schreiner. The German star made an instant impact, scoring a point in her first race back. Sadly though, this became her only success throughout the weekend.

“Rockingham was definitely a bit of a mixed weekend overall but it was fantastic to see Carrie climb into the points in race one, especially in those conditions, on her first time back in the championship since Thruxton”, commented the Woking team’s boss, Anthony Hieatt.

“After the recent podium success we’ve had with Zane at Croft and Knockhill, this weekend wasn’t quite what we’d hoped but we’ll be aiming to be back fighting at the sharp end when we head to Silverstone next month.”

Despite the upset, the team will head into the final two rounds with high hopes as Hieatt’s crew are still mathematically within a chance of catching Fortec Motorsport.
