Strong VW Racing Cup debut for Jess Hawkins [Motorsport Women]

Jess Hawkins has excelled in her first outing in the VW Racing Cup at Brands Hatch. Coming into the weekend with limited testing, Hawkins showed excellent speed from the outset with a strong qualifying session as she set lap times comparative with previous race winners. Despite only coming away from the weekend with a best result of eighth, Jess set the second fastest time in race two, narrowly missing out on fastest lap of the race. Taking her relative experience into account, Hawkins should be thrilled with her pace and will be targeting a full-time campaign in the VW Racing Cup next season.
