Josh’s difficult start
6/7 April 2019
JHR Developments’ Josh Skelton experienced setup and tyre choice difficulties in the season opener, but is confident for a stronger set of results at the next triple-header at Donington Park on the 27th-28th April.
“It was a frustrating first race of the season. I qualified P8 – there was much more potential, but I couldn’t get the car set right,” explained Skelton. The wet conditions for race one and a wrong decision on tyres meant we had a lack of grip. I was happy with my driving and knew the speed was there though. We got off to a good start in race two and were showing really good speed. Going for a move for fourth though, we made contact and picked up damage which meant a DNF. Race three we were looking very quick on the opening laps, but we got contact from another driver resulting in damage and had to pit. Once we back on track we were amongst the quickest, even with damage, so we’re looking to the next one at Donington Park.”
