ESMEE’S RACE REVIEW

“Today was a positive day, we had good race pace and made it count as much as we could. I would’ve liked to qualify a bit higher up so that’s something we’ll work on ahead of tomorrow but our performance in the race was very promising. The spin was unfortunate but that fired me up even more to finish the race strong. A huge thank you to the team as always, we’re continuously improving and moving forwards so I can’t wait to get back out there tomorrow!”
