A second win of the Snetterton weekend for Sennan Fielding sees him leave Norfolk just nine points off the lead. The final F4 British Championship race was a pleasantly clean affair as Petru Florescu maintained the points lead.

As the lights went out Fielding made another clean start and kept his lead into turn one. Behind him though, James Pull and Billy Monger came together, running wide at Riches.

Despite starting in third, Devlin DeFrancesco jumped teammate Max Fewtrell for second as Fielding initially broke away. Jamie Caroline’s race was turned upside as he spun on the final corner, dropping him out the points.

On lap two, Pull, recovering, got side by side with Alex Quinn into Wilson corner. The two touched and Quinn spun. Pull himself didn’t get to far, as Caroline out braked himself smashing into the side of the championship contender. Caroline limped back to the pits, retiring.

The battle for sixth soon became the main talking point as Nicolai Kjaergaard looked to complete a promising weekend. Behind him, Zane Goddard, fellow rookie Ayrton Simmons and a queue of cars attempted to demote the Dane.

Back at the front, DeFrancesco was on the hunt ,as he closed in on the leader Fielding. It became clear that the 20 year old didn’t have the pace of the Carlin’s, as a queue soon formed. Luis Leeds, in fourth was lighting up the timing screens as he closed on Fewtrell.

Fielding and DeFrancesco pulled away slightly in the final lap with the JHR Developments man continuing to help his championship chances. Fewtrell rounded out the podium with Leeds once again settling for fourth.

A quiet race from Florescu saw him take fifth with the fastest lap and maintain his championship lead. Kjaergaard took his third rookie win of the season after holding off Goddard and Simmons for sixth. Behind them Jack Martin and Patrik Matthiesen rounded out the points.
