Roy Nissany became the driver to win both races in a weekend in 2016 as he claimed victory in race two at Silverstone on Sunday to move into second position in the Formula V8 3.5 standings.

The Israeli driver qualified second but was into the lead by the first corner after making a better start than pole sitter Matthieu Vaxiviere, and then stretched his lead to more than seventeen seconds by the chequered flag, leading home a Lotus 1-2 from team-mate Rene Binder.

“It was a great weekend, couldn’t be better,” said Nissany to The Checkered Flag on Sunday. “I did my thing, and I knew I could catch Matthieu.

“I went straight on it, caught him and looked forward, didn’t even look once in the mirrors, just forward, forward, forward! I made my pit stop and it continued. That’s it, and I couldn’t ask for more all weekend.”

Nissany now heads into the summer break in the form of his life, with half of him wanting to keep his momentum going without having to wait until mid-September at the Red Bull Ring to start racing again.

“This break, its sweet and sour,” said Nissany. “From one side I want to keep racing, as we are hot right now, but from the other side we need some time to chill, and we have a good smile for this one and a half months now.”
