MOTORSPORT: Powell gets GP3 spin
10:00am Tuesday 5th November 2013 in Sport
Chipping Norton driver Alice Powell received a late call-up to drive in the GP3 season finale in Abu Dhabi.
Powell, 20, who was runner-up in the F3 Cup, took the seat of Melville McKee, who was unavailable to race for Bamboo Engineering.
Although Powell competed in the series in 2012, she had no experience of the new car.
She finished 19th in race one after being hit three times, with Daniil Kvyat claiming victory and with it the drivers’ championship.
Powell, who was forced to drop out of GP3 due to financial constraints, was 20th in the second race after being hampered by one of her rivals stalling at the start.
