It was an impressive debut season for Logan Hannah in the Scottish Formula Ford Championship as she finished 4th in the championship after a season long battle for 3rd. Podiums along the way helped Logan stay in contention as she grew in confidence and came very close to some race wins.

With all rounds at Knockhill, albeit on different layouts, over six weekends Logan was able to progress in her driving improving her pace and consistency at every round. With Logan aspiring to race in the W Series one day Formula Ford seemed the perfect proving ground, with some of the sport’s most successful starting off in the same category.

Logan didn’t get off to the best start with a 7th and DNF ending a difficult first round. But as the drivers took to the anti-clockwise layout for round two, Logan had adapted faster than others and after an impressive qualifying she took a double podium finish with 2nd in race one and 3rd in race two.

It boosted her all the way up to 3rd in the standings and was a huge confidence boost. Back on the clockwise layout Logan knew she still had work to do against some of the more experienced drivers. Taking a 7th and 6th at round three certainly was a step forward, but Logan was eager to score consistent top five finishes.

At the David Leslie Trophy, Logan did just that with a 5th and two 4th place finishes a sign of further improvement and it had Logan now a contender for regular podium finishes. The penultimate round of the season of the championship was next, back on the anti-clockwise layout for Logan it saw another opportunity to take a podium finish.

Now starting to find her feet, Logan did not disappoint with a 4th in race one just the starter for a fantastic race two which would see Logan finish 3rd and just 0.167 seconds away from victory in a thrilling contest! The season would be finished off with two 5th place finishes all of which left Logan 4th in the championship.

It’s been a brilliant performance by Logan throughout the season having gone from a driver who was making up the numbers at round one, to a race winning contender in a very short space of time! The season is not over yet with Logan set to race in both the Formula Ford Festival and Walter Hayes Trophy over the next few weeks.
