Dalton Aims To Bounce Back After Croft Disappointment

1 Mins read

Jake Dalton is looking for a return to form in the Protyre Formula Renault BARC Championship this weekend at Donington Park after a frustrating meeting last time out at Croft.

The teenager was confident heading the Yorkshire-based circuit, the scene of his debut slicks and wings race in Intersteps last year. A brake problem tainted his qualifying session though, leaving him 10th and 14th on the grid for the two races.

With the problem fixed, the opening race saw Dalton charge up to 7th early on, however a tap from behind caused him to spin down to 25th. Recovering well, Dalton was able to finish 13th, putting him in a confident mood for race two. It started well, the MGR Motorsport driver climbing into the top ten early on, however on lap five he dropped a wheel at the Sunny complex, sending his car hard into the barriers.

“What can I say,” Jake commented. “I was pushing too hard and was too desperate to get to the front and I made a mistake which I will learn from. I will bounce back at Donington with the help and support of my sponsors and family, there’s still a lot I can achieve in the championship.”
