MOTORSPORT - Brea Angliss overcomes incidents to earn Silverstone points

Coventry Editorial 7th Jun, 2023   0

BREA Angliss overcame several incidents to record a pair of top-15 finishes in the latest rounds of the Ginetta Junior Championship as part of the inaugural G Fest event at Silverstone.

The Coventry-based racer contested six races across two different circuit layouts behind the wheel of her Breakell Racing Ginetta G40.

After an incident-packed weekend, the 15-year-old hopes she can move forward with her season following a frustrating outing at Silverstone.

Angliss said: “It’s been a busy, rollercoaster few days.

“I had a couple of strong races on the Grand Prix circuit, moving forward in both, and was keen to capitalise on that through the weekend but on three occasions my races were spoilt by unnecessary moves by other drivers.

“Thank you to Breakell Racing for all their hard work and dedication to giving me a good car, including a late night changing my engine.

“Hopefully I can build on the experience gained at Silverstone and get the results we deserve at Snetterton next.”

Over the Grand Prix circuit, Angliss struggled in qualifying but produced two strong race performances as she stayed out of trouble to rise three places in each race.

On the National circuit, Angliss recovered from an earlier incident to finish 15th in the opening race

And she followed up that performance with a 17th place finish in race two before an ambitious move from another driver led to contact and a damaged car after a stunning start to race three.

There was more frustration for Angliss in the final race after another driver received a reprimand for shoving her off the track and into the gravel trap

Angliss heads to Snetterton for three more Ginetta Junior Championship races over the weekend of June 17 and 18.
