“It's a shame - there is so much potential in the team and they worked really hard all weekend. My thanks go to all at Team West-Tec and to Craig [Dolby, my driving coach] for his help. We just need everything to come together and when it does, I am sure we will be super quick,” added the Accelerate Driver Development Ltd (ADD)-affiliated youngster.
“Although Liam made some good progress leading up to the race and with the satisfaction of knowing that his new engine felt strong, it was a cruel blow after the wet and fog to find that the car needed more work,” Dolby chipped-in. “The driveshaft failure on the start line of race two was no one's fault - it was just one of those things! I am happy with Liam's progress though, and the way he picked his way through the field in race one and passed so many cars was great. We look forward to a stabilised climate for some good racing in Jerez.”
Liam will now continue his campaign in the 2013 European Formula 3 Open championship next week, when the series heads to Spain for round four (June 15-16).
