MOTORSPORT: Wakinshaw looking for podium return
10:00am Saturday 7th September 2013 in Sport
Chipping Norton’s Sean Walkinshaw will be aiming to get back on the podium when the European F3 Open Series resumes at Spa-Francorchamp in Belgium this weekend.
He is determined to try and add to the Copa Class rostrum finish he achieved at Jerez in Spain back in mid-June.
“I really am looking forward to being back in the car, back racing and hopefully challenging for some more podiums,” said Brussels-born Walkinshaw, who is ninth in the standings.
“Spa is such a fantastic circuit and the aim, obviously, is to try to repeat what we managed in Jerez.
“We’ve definitely improved as the season has gone on and I’m much more confident.”
Walkinshaw will have the chance to sample Dunlop’s new tyre compound this wee-kend.
“It’ll be interesting to see the difference the new tyre makes,” he added.
The important thing is to get some good set-up work done in testing.
“When we have managed that, we have generally gone on to have a decent weekend.”
