We are now at the halfway point with Hannah’s racing season in the Celtic Speed Scottish MINI Cooper Cup and it’s safe to say our RAM Racing Driver has had her fair share of ups and downs yet again this year.
Unfortunately, the downs at the moment are outweighing the ups with Hannah having a devastatingly unlucky away round at Donington Park in June. On a track she had never seen or driven before, Hannah managed to qualify brilliantly with a P2 and was set for a podium finish in race 1 before she was hit out of the way by another driver on the last lap (pictured below). To add salt to the wound, the car didn’t even survive a whole lap in the second race at Donington before becoming victim to another driver's incident and was too badly damaged to finish the race.
As a result Hannah has dropped down the championship standings from a promising 3rd to a deflating 8th however we are looking on the bright side and we know she can still come back from this. Hannah is only 38 points behind the championship leader and with half a season still remaining anything can happen, it’ll be a close call this year!
Aside from the doom and gloom of how unlucky Hannah has been, she has actually achieved a lot this season as well with many consistent solid finishes and finally achieving her first overall win showing the guys how it's done! It has been a long time coming and if she can manage some more of those performances for the rest of the year then we are in with a good chance of a great comeback for the RAM Tubulars Race MINI. Either way, we are still proud to support our young driver.
