With the Jim Russell F3 Series action taking a break until April, here’s a look back at one of the most entertaining battles from the 2014-15 Winter Series.
After two of Race 2’s top three qualifiers spun off the track on the first lap at Sonoma Raceway, their chances of winning the race were all-but-over. However it didn’t stop them giving it a damn good try. Read an extract from the Race 2 report below, or watch the video as Simraceway‘s Liam Jenkins take you through the action.
“The eminently watchable recovery runs of Jastremski and Frank would add yet more sparkle to an engrossing race. In the end, Jastremski was able to reel the pack in, finishing a creditable tenth.
