Oulton Park, April 1, 2024 – South African motorsport driver, Jarrod Waberski, made an impressive start to the 2024 GB3 Championship at Oulton Park. Despite unpredictable weather and intense competition, Waberski showcased his skill and determination throughout the weekend.

In the first race, was held in dry conditions on March 30, Waberski started from 9th position after a tough qualifying session. The track is notorious for having very few overtaking opportunities which posed a challenge. Jarrod navigated the circuit with precision and after dropping one position into turn one, he held steady in 10th place, demonstrating his consistency.

The second race, held on April 1, presented a stark contrast. With rain pouring down and visibility severely limited, Waberski faced treacherous conditions. Starting 7th on the grid under safety car conditions, he battled through the wet track. Crossing the finish line in 7th place, showcasing his ability to handle adverse weather.

The final race of the weekend featured a reversed grid format. Waberski began from 3rd place on the grid. When the safety car emerged, he was lying in 4th position. On the restart, he seized the opportunity, moving into 3rd. In a thrilling last lap, he secured 2nd place, earning a well-deserved podium finish.

Reflecting on his performance, Waberski said, “It was a tricky weekend after getting blocked in qualifying, which put us on the backfoot throughout the weekend. Nonetheless, we maximised the weekend as best we could around a circuit that’s nearly impossible to overtake on.

Massive thanks to everyone at Elite Motorsport for all their hard work!

Looking forward to Silverstone we have a good package and I’m eager to get back in the car!”
