8th March 2014: V8 at Birmingham

The V8 season started at Birmingham. Heat 1 and Phoebe raced through the field to second place, but couldn’t quite catch Jamie Marson.

But she did it in the second heat, and won the race! That’s her first race win from blue grade.

A slight problem in the final, when the car jumped out of gear and wouldn’t go back in. But she still managed ninth place.

A non-finish in the GN due to a flat tyre.
