Rebecca Racer rocks at Rockingham

Track action Over the weekend, Rebecca joined the British GT at Rockingham for the second round of the MINI Challenge.

Testing on Friday was going well until Rebecca outbraked herself going into Tarzan. The marshals had to tow the car backwards out of the gravel but in the process ripped off the MINI’s bumper. The team worked hard to fix the car overnight meaning Rebecca could get out for qualifying on Saturday.

Qualifying P28, Rebecca took her place on the grid for the first race. Early on, the safety car made a brief appearance before the red flags were waved and the race was stopped. Will Neal’s car was stranded on the racing line after a mid-pack collision, meaning it was safer to re-grid the field.

The cars were set up on the grid for the restart. From here Rebecca had a great race with some fantastic battles. She gained eight places from her starting position, finishing the race P20.

Race 2 was all about clean racing with no red flags or safety cars. Rebecca spent the race both attacking and defending. She says: “It took me a while to get past Steve King but once I did, I was hot on the tail of the main pack again. It was exhilarating!”

Rebecca finished race 2 in P24 from P20 after some fantastic battles with her fellow JCW drivers.

The next race takes place at Snetterton in Norfolk later this month.
