Cian Carey focused on next F3 Cup action

Ratoath driver Cian Carey will be focused on the next three rounds of the prestigious F3 Cup in the UK with the action set for Rockingham on Saturday 29th September and Sunday 30th September.

Carey maintained his push for the prestigious F3 Cup in the UK with two wins at Snetterton last month while in July he surged clear at the top in the race for the title when he produced some excellent form at Oulton Park that saw him overhaul English driver Stuart Wiltshire and go 12 points clear.

After the three rounds at Snetterton last month the Meath man is now 27 points clear of Wiltshire following the two wins and an important third place finish in the opening race. He will be aiming to repeat that form at Rockingham.

Snetterton wasn't the best track for Carey in the past, but he was focused on the challenge and from fifth on the grid in the opening race managed to make the podium in third place.

He made up a place at the start and got squeezed onto the grass at turn one, but kept his head down and maintained fourth before eventually chasing down Tony Bishop in third.
Carey took victory in the second race at the Norfolk track as the rain held off and added another win in a thrilling final race 

“Early on I had the pace, but Jacopo(Sebastiani) just kept coming back at me, I really enjoyed that race and just thankful I was able to hold on to the lead,” stated the Ratoath man.

“We’ll keep cracking on now for Rockingham in a couple of weeks.

“I have to say a massive thanks to my sponsors Mooretown Engineering, F Brazil Reinforcements and Dunboyne Powder Coating for continued support this season and to everyone at Chris Dittmann Racing for a brilliant car as always,” he concluded. 

The next F3 Cup action will take place at Rockingham on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September with three more races ahead of the final two races of the season at Silverstone in October.

Carey won the Sexton Trophy for the young driver of the year in 2016.
