Chloe Grant returned to the track this past weekend (29th-30th July) following her accident at the previous event by posting a top-10 spot in the first race of the weekend at Paul Ricard.

She was only 0.365 seconds away from securing pole-position on her first visit to the track near Marseille which is an incredible achievement. She spent much of Race 1 vying for eighth place and eventually had to settle for tenth as she passed the chequered flag.

She missed out on the top ten by less than a second in Race 2 before finishing thirteenth in Race 3. Chloe has spent the season racing against other drivers who are older and more experienced single-seat drivers, and her performance has been amazing to watch.

Reflecting on the race Chloe said “It was good to get back racing after the Monza setback and I was generally happy with my performance at Paul Ricard…I was especially happy with how I drove in Race 2, my lap times were better and were consistently faster than the four cars that finished in front of me. I got up to ninth but was pushed wide causing me to lose momentum and places…There’s a break in the calendar now so I’ll be focussing on training and simulator work ahead of Austin.”

The season will now take a summer break and return for its final race at Austin, Texas which will support the US Formula 1 Grand Prix in October.
