First single seater test for Abbie

Abbie: When I sat in the Sim for the first time in February 2017, I never imagined that almost a year to the day I would get my first shot of an actual F4 car!

Abbie had her first experience of an F4 car at a two day test session at Angelsey circuit.  The weather could not have been better, two sunny dry days.

Abbie: I cannot explain the feelings I experience when driving the car for the first time.  Most of all I was extremely proud to not have stalled the car once despite it being an uphill start from the pits

All the hours spent in the gym, swimming pool or doing her home fitness routine paid off with Abbie managing to complete over 150 laps across the two days.

Working with Arden’s race engineer, Brandon Wong, Abbie was able to continually improve her lap times across the two days.

Abbie: I loved working with the whole team from Arden.  Great atmosphere in the garage and despite the fact this was new to me no-one made me feel uncomfortable
