Former Heath Mount pupil Callum Ilott had a great time racing at Nurburgring this weekend with his first podium finish in Race 1 (3rd). Callum, who races for the Red Bull Junior team, was also ranked ‘Highest Placed Newcomer’ and picked up a very well deserved trophy for his efforts.
After race 1, Callum commented “I enjoyed the race and was very happy with the pace. We pulled out a huge lead over fourth, about thirty seconds and I tried to keep the pressure on as much as possible but never quite got the chance to have a go at second.
I’m looking forward to going back to Hockenheim, I went OK at the beginning of the year and I have learnt a lot since then, I can do a better job.”
