After an impressive performance at Snetterton, Bradley and the entire Gravett Racing team are feeling positive and eager to continue their strong momentum as they head into Round 4 of the MINI Challenge JCW series at Oulton Park this coming weekend. With consistent front-running results and a new personal best in points scoring, Bradley is determined to secure another well-deserved podium finish.
The previous round at Snetterton showcased Bradley's remarkable talent and determination. Despite not having driven the circuit for over 12 months, he displayed exceptional pace and racecraft, narrowly missing out on podium finishes in all three races. Unfortunately, aggressive manoeuvres from over-ambitious drivers forced him off track, preventing him from clinching that second podium spot.
Reflecting on his performance at Snetterton, Bradley remains optimistic and motivated to carry that momentum into the upcoming race weekend at Oulton Park. His goal is clear: challenge for more podium finishes and capitalise on the opportunity to bring home more silverware.
The article published after the third round at Snetterton highlighted Bradley's outstanding achievements and showcased his determination to make a mark in the MINI Challenge. Bradley's highest-ever points-scoring race weekend demonstrates his progress and growing confidence on the track. Bradley secured a solid starting position for the races with an excellent qualifying session at Snetterton, where he lapped more than a second quicker than he did in testing.
A brilliant opening lap in race one propelled Bradley into the top five, showcasing his overtaking skills and racecraft. He held off challenges from competitors to finish in fifth place, securing essential championship points. Race two presented a challenge when he was nudged wide by another driver in turn one, resulting in a drop to eighth place. Nevertheless, Bradley exhibited his tenacity and fought back to fifth place, again scoring valuable points. In race three, a spirited battle for podium positions, unfortunately, resulted in a drop down the order, but Bradley managed to salvage a sixth-place finish, further adding to his point tally.
With Snetterton concluded Bradley currently sits in sixth place in the championship standings, considering dropped scores. This position reflects his consistent performance and the immense potential he possesses. Bradley's determination to challenge for podiums is unwavering, and he is confident in his ability to compete among the front-runners.
