It’s been 2 months since my first day on track and on Friday I was back where I started at Snetterton. Last time here was a big leap into the unknown and I felt like a moving chicane on a very wet track. Now I’m back here with a properly setup car and 12 track days under my belt I’m a much faster driver.
Being a bank holiday there was a real mix of ‘normal’ cars on track compared to track days earlier in the season which are mainly racing cars testing. Had some great moments on track with fellow Academy drivers and chasing down faster cars.
Snetterton looks a really simple track on a map but some of the corners are difficult on the limit. The long straights means the effect of drafting other cars is huge in a Caterham. When we race there in August there is going to be a lot of overtaking!
