F4 British Championship

Caroline still pushing for title battle as F4 heads to Thruxton

1 Mins read

Jamie Caroline will head into the third round of the F4 British Championship season with just over half the points of championship leader Max Fewtrell. Having picked up only one podium this season, the Jamun Racing driver will be hoping to improve on a tricky start to the season.

Last year left Thruxton with only his second podium of the season, he went on to claim five victories in a row, ending the season on 10 and the Ginetta Junior Championship.

Despite the lack of podiums, Donington Park will be well remembered for Caroline’s blistering start in the opening race of the weekend, jumping from fifteenth to sixth on the opening lap. In the end though, his poor qualifying is what held his weekend back as he continues to establish himself as a rain master.

“Testing at Thruxton last month didn’t go as well as we hoped, although the changing conditions didn’t really help,” he said. “However, since then we have had a good weekend at Donington Park and have also discovered a few other things with the car that mean I’m heading back to Thruxton in confident mood for the weekend ahead.

“It’s the quickest circuit on the calendar and totally different to anywhere else that we race with the sweeping corners around the back and the fact you are flat out so much. I really enjoy driving there and it’s a circuit that means a lot to me personally as it was the place where I took my first win in Ginettas.

“There’s been a lot of coverage online of my performance at Donington Park last month and hopefully I can create a few more headlines with a good performance this weekend and fight at the front of the field to move up the championship standings.”

While Caroline has still managed to collect 46 points over the year, team mate Jack Butel will be looking forward to a new weekend as he looks to improve on the 6 he’s collected so far this season.
