South African contender Jarrod Waberski proved to be one of the stars of the GB4 season. The now 17-year-old was a late addition to the field for the Snetterton season opener, but was immediately on the podium, and hardly off it thereafter. He took second in the driver’s standings courtesy of a double win at the final Donington Park round, his third and fourth triumphs of the year.
Here’s how he reacted to his first season of European racing:
I'd have to say my first win in Oulton Park, as that sealed the deal for me to do the rest of the championship.
The first Donington round earlier this year. It was our worst race weekend, and this was the moment we took a different approach to the setup of the car.
Favourite race of the year:
The Donington final, the best weekend we had all year, our pace was strong throughout the whole weekend.
Favourite driver to race against:
I'd say Max (Marzorati). We've had tons of wheel to wheel races and close finishes throughout the year.
What if moment:
I'd have to say the second Silverstone weekend, race one. That mistake made the whole race weekend a lot tougher, starting further back with the grid penalty. We had the pace for more wins.
If I could race anything next year:
if I could do absolutely anything next year. I'd have to say Formula 1! But realistically I'd say GB3.
I'm going to spend the winter doing:
I'll be training, training as much as possible to be as prepared as I can be for next year.
