ESMEE’S RACE REVIEW

“A mixed weekend for us at Lausitzring but still with plenty of positives to take. Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the team for turning the car around after the crash on Saturday. My pace was good all weekend, I just needed that little bit extra in turn one.


"Sunday was a much better day obviously, I enjoyed getting stuck in and making a few passes on the opening couple of laps. From there I was just keeping it steady and not taking any risks. With just two weeks until we’re back out at Zolder, I’ll be pushing on as hard as I can to make sure I’m as prepared as possible!”
