Hillspeed’s Max Marzorati is aiming to push on all fronts to remain on the grid for the rest of the GB4 season, after edging even closer to the championship lead courtesy of two more podiums at Silverstone.
The 21-year-old has earned five trophies from the past seven races to put him within 12 points of Elite’s championship leader Alex Walker, and equal on points with Fortec’s three-time race-winner Nikolas Taylor.
He was also closely involved in the scrap for a podium position in the final race, and admits he gave it everything as he battled not only for another trophy, but to win a bet with his team that would have seen his mechanic get a tattoo, had Marzorati completed a podium clean-sweep.
“I gave it everything for that podium, I really did,” he said. “I was a bit worried when I went up the inside of [Tom] Mills at Copse and was like ‘don’t let this be a Hamilton/Verstappen moment!’ But I gave it everything.”
The determined contender, who has worked multiple jobs in previous campaigns to fund partial seasons in racing, is hoping to secure the necessary budget to allow him to maintain his championship charge.
“We’re equal second in the championship now and so close to Alex, we can do it with the way we’ve been so consistent. If we can get one or two people on board, I think we can really get this championship.
“I’m going to try my hardest like I do every time I’m out on track, and trying to talk to sponsors so we can keep on racing.
“The next round is Donington which is where I got my podium in British F3 last year. It’s a track that we know I’m strong at like Silverstone, and if we can just keep up what we’ve been doing by banking podiums and points, eventually that win is going to come. I’m just hoping we can get out and do that.”
