Jamie Chadwick was thrilled to be back racing after the British driver made her Formula 3 Regional European Championship debut in Italy.
The 22-year-old was racing competitively for the first time since winning the W Series in August 2019.
Chadwick followed up Saturday's third-place finish in the first race in Rimini with an eighth and a sixth place in the next two races.
"It is great to be racing again," said Chadwick.
The Bath-born racer is driving with the Italian Prema team following support from Rodin Cars' multi-millionaire boss David Dicker.
Chadwick was particularly impressive in her first race at the Misano Circuit as, starting from seventh she moved up third on the opening lap and held on for the remainder of the race.
Denmark's Oliver Rasmussen was first, with Finland's Patrik Pasma second.
"I'm very pleased to pick up a podium for Rodin and Prema," Chadwick added.
"This series provides a lot of close racing, as today demonstrated, and this is perfectly suited to my development curve".
