British racing driver Sarah Reader takes to the track again this weekend for Rounds 9 and 10 of the SPEED EuroSeries at Dijon, France. The meeting had originally been scheduled to be held at Brno in the Czech Republic but, following a decision by the ACO and ELMS to cancel the last two European rounds of the series, SPEED EuroSeries organisers managed to find an alternative solution to ensure the season could proceed uninterrupted.
Reader showed encouraging form last time out in July at Donington Park, bringing the #24 Juno entry home to 4th position in both of the weekends’ races. Now, having already achieved a podium this year in the opening race of the season, Warwickshire’s Reader is confident she and co-driver Garry Findlay can continue and build upon the strong form from Donington.
“It’s going to be good to get back in the car after the summer break. Donington seems a like long time ago but I’ve used the gap in the calendar wisely to make sure I’m focused and up for the challenge this weekend.
“I’m pleased that the series organisers have found a suitable replacement for Brno. The last-minute change in schedule has meant that we will go straight into qualifying without any testing so finding a good balance and setup with the car as early as possible will be vital.
“Dijon is a track that I’ve raced a few times in the Juno, and also a Caterham, so we can use my experience and I think we should be able to keep the momentum going to target a podium this weekend.”
