She spent the last half of 2015 completing various test days at famous circuits such as Silverstone, Donington Park, Rockingham and more locally, Snetterton.

She also tested various cars; the MSA FIA F4 car, Formula Jedi and also a Ginetta GT4 G55 car.

From the many test days under her belt, Bryony developed her skills, along with the coaching from the highly experienced and extremely talented Alice Powell.

Bryony has also been busy with her studies since leaving Ely College, and is now training and studying on the elite athlete course at Loughborough College as part of the Motorsport Association Academy.

Her test programme for the forthcoming months is currently being planned and her race season is set to begin in April, with Bryony competing in the Formula Jedi Championship for 2016.
