SCAMMONDEN racer Daniel Lloyd departed Silverstone disappointed.
The 20-year-old was unable to convert a sensational top 10 qualifying performance into a strong race result on his Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup debut – Lloyd being shunted out of the race on lap one.
Lloyd was one of eight competitors from Porsche Carrera Cup GB who were granted a wildcard entry into the British Grand Prix support race, and was the best of the group in qualifying – making a big impression at his first ever FIA Formula One World Championship event.
But come raceday there was disaster for Lloyd.
“Everyone crumpled up into the hairpin after Abbey and Village, I was behind Michael Meadows and I got hit from behind”, explained Lloyd.
“That pushed me into the back of Meadows’ car and my radiator was wrecked straight away. There was nothing we could do, it was just really disappointing.
“But it was an amazing experience overall though, there are loads of positives to take from the whole event and I’ve learnt a lot.
“The paddock is so professional and it’s obviously where I want to be in the future, to have experienced the Supercup so early in my Porsche career is fantastic.”
Next on the schedule for Lloyd will be the resumption of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship with rounds 11 and 12 of the season taking place at Snetterton in Norfolk on August 11 and 12.
