I am super excited for this weekend! After last year’s age dispensation, it’s made me even more excited and eager to get out there this year.
As it’s my first time heading to this track, I’m a little nervous about it but I’m also looking forward to it. The Mountain is such an iconic track and to be able to head there at the age of 16 and race is just mind blowing.
I’ve been doing a bit of preparation on the sim at home and it’s a hard track even on the sim, so I can only imagine what it’s like in real life! It’s super-fast flowing, massive corners and of course as we all know it – can be unforgiving. So, it’s important that I concentrate at all times.
My goal for the weekend is to focus on qualifying and try to make the most of it to hopefully put us in a good position for the races. Obviously, there’s quite a few cars in the Toyota 86 Series, so I’ll be looking to push hard and trying to stay out of the hustle and bustle as much as I can!
I’m hoping that the extra track time that I’ve had in between the Toyota 86 rounds in the Mustang over in Asia also benefits me. Can’t wait to get out there!
