CDR ends BRDC British F3 campaign with three points finishes

Tewkesbury’s Chris Dittmann Racing (CDR) ended its BRDC British F3 championship action for the season with three points-scoring finishes, and pace to challenge for the top-ten, despite beginning the weekend on the back foot at Donington Park last weekend (23-24 September). The team fielded a single car for Jeremy Wahome in the championship finale, and the young Kenyan performed well to qualify 13th after only arriving at the circuit on Saturday morning. Jeremy’s travel from Kenya was delayed, preventing him from benefitting from any pre-event testing, so it was an impressive display to set a competitive lap time and even[…..]
