Monster Energy Suzuka 24 Hours by BUSR in Support of Special Effect
Last weekend 19/20 of June 2021, we drove the 24h at Suzuka. We ended up with P12, it was a good race and we learned a lot about it. I’m very proud of the girls (Alethea Boucq, Sophie Aeronwen and Sarah Johnson)!!
For some of the ladies, it was their first 24 hours race, they drove good and I can’t wait for the next 24 hours!
The 24h at Suzuka was in Support of Special Effect, there were a lot of people who donated for this amazing charity!
The Sim Grid More Female Racers Round 5
Last Monday 21-06-2021, was the MFR round 5 at Brands Hatch. Everything was changed on Monday and I drove as a co-driver from Sarah Johnson.
We knew it’s going to be a tough race because we were not recovered from the 24 hours race.
The first stint from Sarah was good and my first two laps weren’t good, but after that, it was a lot better, unfortunately, there was a bug in the pitstop and the engine stalled.
When Sarah turned the engine on the pit limiter was off, we had a stop and go 30sec, this cost us a good result in the race. We had fun and hopefully when we driving together next time, it will be better.
The next race is going to be a public voted track, we know Monday 28-06-2021 where we need to drive. This is going to be the last race of the season and I’m going to drive with Eris.
Theamusante Wavy World Tour
On Friday 25-06-2021 the Theamusante Wavy World Tour is starting.
I drive this season together with Sarah Johnson for GTWR R8G Female Racing.
Of course, we are driving with Bernadette (Bentley).
The first race is the 90min at Suzuka.
I’m really looking forward to this new series, there are a lot of teams and also a lot of good drivers.
The good thing about the first race, we don’t need much practice, after the 24 hours race at Suzuka.
GRG eSports 4 hours of Misano
26 June 2021, we are driving the 4 hours of Misano.
I drive together with Sophie Aeronwen and driving with Bernadette (Bentley).
I drove the qualification, last Saturday 19-06-2021.
It was during the 24 hours and couldn’t practice for it, I drove the second time. We are going to start the race from P2!
Let’s hope we going to end up in the top 3, that would be great!! Misano is one of my favorite tracks and I’m really looking forward to driving this with Sophie!
