The Jazzy car had a great weekend at Silverstone on 28th and 29th May, with Preva’s Ian Anderson and partner Amanda Black in fine form.
Equipped with new Pirelli tyres, the Jazzy car flew through the qualifying round, with Amanda in pole position and Ian just 0.2 seconds behind his teammate in the GTA class.
Ian’s first race got off to a great start, until a nasty incident (involving 2m high flames) meant that the distance between cars closed up when the safety car had to come onto the track. After the restart, Ian managed to achieve a clear gap again ahead of his rivals, before experiencing understeer problems, allowing O’Brien to get in front. In a nail-biting close finish, Ian achieved victory in the Jazzy car!
Amanda’s first race was also full of drama, with the Jazzy Ginetta making contact with another car, but Amanda kept her cool to finish third.
Sunday started well with a great qualifying round, claiming pole position by 0.3 seconds. The car had been reset to avoid understeer, but a problem then developed with oversteer! Amanda also had to contend with a spinning Porsche on the track, before achieving her fastest laps ahead of the driver swap. Ian drove a great race, securing another podium place with third position.

So what’s Ian’s verdict on the weekend? “A challenging weekend with car setup and handling but overall happy with the outcome.”
