IT is a mark of rookie racer Oliver Jarvis's bold ambitions that he left disappointed with two podium finishes from the All Japan F3 Championships at the weekend.
The 23-year-old from Burwell finished second, then third, in rounds three and four of the championship, in Suzuka.
He said: "After pre-season testing I was expecting more. That said, I'm still second in the championship and I shall be working hard for even better results."
Some wheelspin off the line in the first race of the day prevented Jarvis from moving up a place from his third position start.
