ESMEE’S RACE REVIEW

“I’ve really enjoyed my first time racing here at the Nürburgring. It’s been another positive weekend and I’m really happy with my performance, particularly in the races. We’re pushing ever closer to the points and I can feel myself improving every weekend. We had a variety of conditions to deal with this weekend and that experience will really help me as we move forwards. I can’t wait to get back out there in Austria in a couple of weeks!”
