Jessica Hawkins, British racing driver, was photographed at Donington track driving an Indy Car owned by a friend of Bridge Classic Cars, Mike O’Connor, who you may recognise from our Jaguar Race Car shoot. The event was the inaugural round of the FIA Historic Masters Demonstration Round. This high-speed exhibition is run between the Master’s Races and was a great opportunity for Jessica to try out Mike’s Indy car.
