Career

Early career

FV2 Series (2014-2015)

2014

In early 2014 Thunder was announced as a driver for Formation Competition in the 2014 FV2 Series. Her first race was her home event, in which she took pole, fastest lap, the win and led every lap of the race. She scored consistently in the six races afterwards to maintain a strong position in the Championship however back-to-back retirements in Austria and Holland cost her dearly. She fought back in Belgium with pole position but could only finish third, leaving her three points behind Championship leader Stuart Harrison heading into the final race in Italy. She suffered a miserable weekend in Italy and finally finished twelfth, leaving her third in the Championship.

Thunder then later competed in the Macau V-Prix with Formation Competition. She qualified second to Allar Kangur but after a race long battle with Judson Sikes she won the event with an impressive move on the final lap.

2015

Thunder will remain in FV2 for a second season in 2015 with Formation Competition. Although initially leaving the team to join new outfit Formula Ocelot, she sensationally returned to Formation Competition when Ocelot were granted a spot in Formula Virtual and left the FV2 Series. She took pole for - and won - the opening feature race of the season in South Africa.
