Warwickshire racing driver Sarah Reader heads to Bologna this week for the Italian rounds of the SPEED EuroSeries which take place at Imola, near San Marino, this weekend.
After impressive form in the season opener at Paul Ricard, which saw the #24 TFL Racing entry on the podium, Reader was forced to sit out the last double-header at Spa-Francorchamps due to mechanical issues. However, now being joined by a new co-driver in the shape of Garry Findlay, Reader is keen to get back in the seat and, after a successful test at Donington Park last week, hopes the duo can make a solid outing at Imola.
“I raced at Imola last year so we have data to work from with the car which will give us a solid starting point for Free Practice on Friday.
“It’s a great circuit; very fast and flowing with lots of character and, having achieved a podium with 3rd there last year, we will be looking to build on our previous success.
“Garry adapted to the Juno really quickly, showing good pace in the Donington test, and with a new engine in the car we are both feeling confident and positive for the weekend ahead.”
