Star Mazda

Being a massive fan of F1 the Star Mazda really interests me. The fact that the season opened at Spa, one of my favourite race tracks in the world, doubled this enthusiasm. I put in a good amount of practice laps and today jumped into a race. I knew I was a good 5 seconds a lap off the pace. I started last on the grid and kept to myself for the most part.

At the end of the race I was in a 3 way battle for 10th. I finished 11th and had managed to improve my fastest lap time by a couple of seconds just from learning the race line watching the guys in front of me.

I really enjoy driving the Star Mazda but it is obvious that it'll be a real challenge to do any good in this series. The level of competition is intense. The front runners are just so unbelievably quick. The difficulty doesn't put me off, but I don't think it'll be my main focus this season.
