It was a big leap from Citroen Saxos to GB4 machinery for Chloe Grant, but with each round she improved her pace and towards the end of the season, was giving the midfield contenders a real run for their money.
Her achievements were recognised by the FIA Girls on Track scheme, and she will soon find out if she’s won the competition.
Here’s her thoughts on her first season in single-seaters:
This has to be round seven at Brands Hatch where I got my highest finish with fourth place from P8. It felt like such a great achievement as I'd been struggling to break above P7 until then.
The last race of the season at Donington was a difficult one. After having such a great weekend, with a P6 and P7 and making up two places in the championship standings, an incident at turn one finished the weekend early. But nevertheless, the results we did get were well earned and I had enjoyed every minute of it! I really didn't want the season to come to an end.
Favourite race of the year:
Ironically, the race just before the toughest was my favourite! I made up five positions and there was lots of close racing. By the chequered flag I'd moved up a place in the overall standings. Very happy!
Favourite driver to race against this year
Jarrod! Waberski gives you a good race and definitely doesn't make it easy for you. Respect.
That what if moment
What if I made it past turn one of the final race?...
If I could race anything next year it would be…
If I could race anything next year it would be to continue in single seaters, this is because there is no feeling like driving a single seater fast and you learn so much
I’m going to spend my winter doing…
Training, focusing on driving and 2023!
