James Deane Earlier This Year
Meath’s Cian Carey had a fantastic race one in the F3 Cup at Brands Hatch finishing on the podium in 3rd place. Carey had a self confessed “messy qualifying”. Finding it difficult to get a clear run however took full advantage in the first race to achieve a “mega recovery” said the Motorsport Ireland 2016 Young Racing Driver Of The Year.
Race two struggled to find a rhythm. A few minutes under safety car and a premature finish with a red flag meant Carey could not make any headway, finishing in 7th.
