Hockenheim is coming up
Hello and welcome back to my weblog. I am so looking forward to start racing again next weekend (April 12/13) at Hockenheim, the first of this year’s F3 Euroseries rounds. I’ve been to Hockenheim a couple of times and enjoy the track, so I’m hoping for a good start to the championship. My car is fully liveried with my sponsors and my new suits and new helmet are all ready and waiting. It’s been a great couple of weeks, I’ve been selected for the BRDC Superstars scheme, re-elected to the MSA Race Elite programme, topped the time sheets at a test in Estoril and spent a lot of time training hard in the gym.
Tomorrow I fly to Hockenheim for practice, qualifying on Friday, with one race on Saturday and a reverse grid race on Sunday, which is new to me, where the first eight finishers of race 1 swap positions for Race 2, for example, the winner starts 8th while 8th in the first race takes pole. This will make the races even more interesting.
You can watch the races on Motors TV on Sunday morning.
