Graham Brunton Racing’s Logan Hannah is aiming to transfer her form on Knockhill’s reverse form to the conventional layout after recording her first Scottish Formula Ford podiums last weekend.
The teenager finished second in the opening race at the Fife circuit, and added a third place in the second race. In the first round of the season, on Knockhill’s usual layout, she had struggled and left last in the standings.
With limited dry testing of Knockhill since making her championship debut last October, Hannah was relieved to have broken her podium duck in just her fourth race meeting.
“First proper dry race weekend and with the Sunday being relatively dry was a massive help,” Hannah told FF1600website.
“I’ve been really happy with the amount of progress I’ve made with Graham and Craig [Brunton], and I’m looking to make the same sort of progress for the normal direction as well.
“I really enjoy the reverse layout, and it’s a bit of a shame that it’s not always this way.”
Having qualified third for the opening race, Hannah had run third for much of the encounter before slipping back behind Neil Broome and Rotor Racing’s Kenny Cowie. She inherited second after the pair collided at the hairpin in the closing stages.
Hannah then got the jump on poleman Gronkowski at the start of the second race and briefly led before being usurped by the championship leader and Matt Chisholm.
“I gave it a shot going into turn one with the start I got. I was hoping to finish where I started but when the race finally got going properly, I was just thinking about trying to pull away from Matt in third, trying to build a gap.
“I’m still really happy with third, considering it is only the second round of the year and my fourth race weekend
On temporarily leading race two, she added: “That was pretty cool! And then at the same time, I was looking in my mirrors going ‘when is he going to pass me?’. He tried to do me going into the Chicane and I was like ‘eh, no! I’ll let you do it down the main straight!'”
