and a problem free weekend
ADD Motorsports driver John Bryant-Meisner was delighted to register his first win in a year in the British Formula 3 Championship.
Competing as a jump in with Performance Racing, the Swedish driver registered maximum championship points in Race 3, along with two second place finishes.
And it was a welcome relief to be able to have a problem-free weekend and let his racing do the talking.
He said: “It was a really good weekend and nice to have a problem-free weekend for a change.
“I was fast all weekend and drove well. It was great to get a win - the last one must be 13 or 14 months ago - and a couple of other podiums as well made it even better.”
Despite Ed Jones and Sean Galael taking the top spots in each race, their European-spec cars were not running for championship points over the weekend so were discounted.
John thought he was struggling for pace during the first practice so was surprised to discover he was the quickest. They tried a few different things for the second practice, but the results were the same.
Qualifying saw him finish in second place in both and in Race 1 he carried this form on and got off to a great start.
Using former championship-winning driver Roberto Merhi as a benchmark, he knew he was driving well, although was in a train of the four cars and unable to overtake.
But he was more than happy to finish second and get a podium.
Race 2 was a reverse grid that saw Bryant-Meisner finish second again – despite being pushed onto the grass at one point.
He started Race 3 in second place again, but this time after a good start managed to lead for the whole race to get his first win in 14 months.
He added: “It was a good track, good to be back with Performance Racing and I was surprised at how much lighter the British F3 car felt.
“The whole weekend couldn’t have gone any better to be honest, so I’m looking forward to where we go from here.”
