Alex Lynn is looking for a top three finish in the GP2 Series at Silverstone this weekend having spent last Saturday and Sunday at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The 21-year-old Dunmow racing star was a guest driver in West Sussex and got behind the wheel of the Williams FW13B which Belgian Thierry Boutsen guided to second place in the 1990 British F1 Grand Prix.
“It was such an amazing experience to drive the Williams FW13B up the hill,” said Lynn, who won the GP3 title last season before progressing to GP2 this year.
“To be amongst so many successful drivers and riders throughout the Festival was a real honour,” he said.
The Red Arrows were one of the highlights at the Festival of Speed, but Lynn has vowed his head is not in the clouds following his festival exploits.
