Double Race Weekend at Magny Cours
Monday, August 13, 2007
After a rainy test day, Amanda set out to lay down some impressive laps at Magny Cours, France. “It was great to run faster times than some Corvettes and car alike in an Alpine” Amanda said after the first qualifying session on Saturday was a wet session, qualifying 3rd in class, ninth overall.
During the first race that afternoon, Amanda experienced some brake issues, and soon fell off from the cars in her class. “A little disappointing after this morning’s qualifying, but I know the car will be ready for tomorrow.”
......And it was. Amanda charged the field , getting a great start and holding on to second in class for the race! “The Alpine is a great car to drive! It handles similar to my SRF back home. I enjoy every opportunity to drive this car!” Amanda said after the race.
Amanda will return to Magny Cours next year for a race series TBA. Stay tuned!
