This past weekend saw the latest round of the GB3 Championship at Snetterton, with Zone Recruitment sponsored driver, Ayrton Simmons racing.
The weekend started hard, although the car demonstrated great pace, a sudden down pour in qualifying, meant that Ayrton's races would be an uphill battle, having to start from P16/P17 and the an initial P3 for the reverse grid.
Ayrton demonstrated he's ability and pace in races one and 2 gaining places and often passing cars like they were standing still!....Zone Recruitment were at the track for Race 3. The team were informed due to not qualifying within 103%, the start for reverse grid would be P16...not the news anyone was expecting or planned for, especially 5 minutes before race start!
Did this affect Ayrton's mentality?.....hell no!
He put on a masterful display of overtaking and raw pace, to climb for P16 to P6, a gain of 10 places and a haul of points that pull him within distance of the top 3 in the championship!
Next up, Silverstone this coming weekend...with the car now clearly in a better place, and with Ayrton out to prove a point, it's going to be good!
