Graham Brunton Racing’s Logan Hannah believes she can challenge for her first Scottish FF1600 podium after qualifying a career-best third for the first reverse-layout meeting of the year at Knockhill.
The teenager was the best GBR driver, and her 53.556s lap put her 1.264 seconds behind the track record-setting Jordan Gronkowski.
Early in qualifying, Hannah’s Ray suffered from gear linkage issues, a problem which rectified itself in time for her to set her best lap.
“I’m really happy, I got myself into a bit of a bad spot during the session as I had Steve [Barlow] in front of me so I decided to drop back, and then I picked up Neil [Broome],” Hannah told FF1600website.
“I had some clear laps but I was having some problems with the gear linkages, getting from second to third. But the main focus on the last lap was getting a clear one and making sure the gear changes were on point.”
Hannah’s dry running at the Fife circuit had been limited to just a single day of testing prior to the weekend, but the Young Racing Driver Academy member is confident she can fight for the podium.
“It felt really good. Right now, I’m pushing the car as hard as I have ever done but I still think there’s a bit more to come, maybe not as much as Jordan though.
“It’s just about putting our heads together and making a plan for the start. I need to take my time and have a think about what I want to do. Race pace is good so far so hopefully we can finish there or higher.”
