My first test at Brands Hatch with Team Hard was a success. I will be sharing more information soon. For now here are a couple of laps from my first test-day in the Team HARD Racing Volkswagen Golf GTi R Cup Car.
This was my next step towards racing in the VW Racing Cup. We were at Brands Hatch on a general track day. This means that the other drivers were mostly adults with road driving licenses but there were some also with racing licenses.
At the start of the day I took it very slow. This was just to get a feel for the car. Then I worked on getting faster bit by bit. By the end of the day I was overtaking some of the other cars on track. This video shows some of the overtakes. Because it was a track day we were only allowed to pass on the straights and were asked to keep a sensible distance from the cars. Racing will be a lot closer than this.
I learned a lot on the day but there is still a long way to go. I’m really pleased with my performance so far.
Special Thanks to Team HARD, RiverGlide and everyone who made this day possible.
