RACE 2: This was a much better result with Alisha climbing through the field from 17th to 8th and with it 3rd place Rookie and a podium.…..!!!!! 🏆🥉
Sunday 24th April:
RACE 3: Alisha was having a good battle amongst a group of cars but unfortunately got tagged going into turn one, resulting in her race coming to an end in the gravel trap. However, it was absolutely amazing for her to have the ITV4 camera onboard - awesome opportunity, experience and coverage! 🎥 For anyone who missed the live race on Sunday this can be viewed here: https://www.itv.com/btcc/articles/btcc-2022-donington-park-race-action (Scroll down to 'Ginetta Junior round 3' and click the play button)
There were huge high’s and low’s during the weekend but overall there are many positives for Alisha to take away, great for her to finally be out there racing.
A huge thank you goes out to the team, Preptech UK, Oilver Barnard and James Gornall for the incredibly hard work, support and guidance! Also to Alisha’s sponsors and supporters who help to make this possible.
