Having worked extremely hard on improving the car over the close season, Sunday’s first race of the season at Goodwood was always going to be a nervous affair as the KSB MotorSport Team established how their developments were going to function in a race environment.

The day started with a challenge, as we faced some electrical problems in practice, however, the Team showing fantastic resilience, with Fred leading the way, as they worked through the pre-race period to find a solution in time for the start of the first round of the Greenpower F24+ season.

The Team started low down the grid and were 15th amongst a field of 22 very strong competitors. Hannah, in what might be her last race as the driver, nursed the car very carefully through the first couple of laps feeding back performance data to the pit crew. As our self-assurance grew, we began moving through the field, finishing stronger than we ever have done in any race previously, and securing a brilliant 5th place in Class. The Team also achieved their best-timed distance at Goodwood, and also recorded their best ever lap time, averaging 25.6 mph.

Overall, a performance of which the whole Team can be very proud. With two more races ahead over the next six weeks, and a focus on continuing improvement, we are now able to approach these races with more confidence and with a goal of a podium finish within our reach. Well done all!
