ESMEE'S RACE REVIEW

“A mixed weekend for us at Lausitzring but still with plenty of positives to take. Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the team for turning the car around after the crash on Saturday. My pace was good all weekend, I just needed that little bit extra in turn one.

"Sunday was a much better day obviously, I enjoyed getting stuck in and making a few passes on the opening couple of laps. From there I was just keeping it steady and not taking any risks. With just two weeks until we’re back out at Zolder, I’ll be pushing on as hard as I can to make sure I’m as prepared as possible!”

Check out the Highlights from the weekend, including Esmee's T3 Motorsport Lamborghini being displayed in the beautiful city of Dresden before the race
