The former Radical SR3 Cup racer made a superb debut to the series in Snetterton. Settling himself into the unique characteristics of the Ginetta G55 over Friday’s Free Practice and Saturday’s Qualifying, by Race one Chris was now getting into a good rhythm with his lap times tumbling on every tour.
Following a clean run in race one, it was race two where Car really made his mark, finishing on the podium in third position. With the final race of the weekend being postponed due to timetable restrictions, Chris makes his return to the series in Rockingham, full of confidence and looking to pick up where he left off last time out.
Chris Car – #33 Century Motorsport Ginetta G55 GT4:
“Getting to grips with the car on a Saturday morning during qualifying was challenging. Qualifying was just too short! I just needed more time in the car after the disappointment of Friday. I felt the race on Saturday was ok and it gave me confidence and I was actually looking forward to Race two. I got a great start, but was a little apprehensive at the beginning. However the car felt better and better as each lap went by and I felt more confident. It was exciting to get on the podium on my first weekend of racing Ginetta. It was a real pity that Race three didn’t take place, as I was in a better place to start. I wanted to say thanks to Century Motorsport for looking after me all weekend and really doing a great job with the car. And thanks to Nathan for constantly going over all the data with me, now I am really looking forward to Rockingham this weekend and trying to push harder.
Nathan Freke – Team Principal, Century Motorsport:
“Overall Chris’ debut at Snetterton was very good. After a little mishap on Friday, it just got better and better from there, and I was certainly very happy to see Chris earn a well deserved podium on Sunday. It was a shame race three didn’t happen, but now it’s his chance to make up for that at Rockingham this weekend, where I really hope we can pick up where we left off at Snetterton.”
