The UK’s premier single-seater championship returned to action at Norfolk’s Snetterton circuit this weekend gone (27/28 May), following a dramatic weekend at Rockingham.
Jamie headed to Snetterton with tonsillitis and doubts over whether or not she would be fit enough to even race. After two enduring test days Jamie headed into a damp qualifying somewhat on the back foot. This did not hinder her performance as she netted fifth overall, her best ever British F3 qualifying.
Race 1 saw a strong performance from Jamie and she quickly settled into her rhythm after a tough first lap. Jamie eventually finished seventh and secured a reverse grid front row slot for Race 2.
Starting second Jamie bogged down at the start and had to show plenty of fight to stay in the Top 10 over the first few laps. Battling back and putting her disappointment behind her Jamie saw the chequered flag in seventh overall. Unfortunately due to the tyre strategy being compromised after the start Jamie could not put in the lap time she wanted too in traffic which meant she lined up for Race 3 with the twelfth quickest time.
With her work cut out and overtaking opportunities at a premium Jamie started twelfth and finished twelfth. Jamie leaves Snetterton ninth in the overall standings with plenty of learning achieved in this her rookie season.
“’Snetterton marked another positive weekend for us in British F3. I was pleased with three solid finishes in the races, and of course to break the top 5 for our best qualifying attempt in the wet was fantastic!”Jamie said. “As ever a massive thank you to Double R for all of their efforts over the weekend.”
Next up on the British F3 calendar is the home of the British Grand Prix, Silverstone on the 10th and 11th June.
