A strong weekend from F4 British Championship racer Harry Webb saw the Norfolk driver take his first two wins in the Ford F4 Challenge Cup, also culminating in his best overall result with the Richardson Racing team.
Having finished behind main rival Oliver York for every race this season, Oulton Park marked the first comeback event for Webb, who will hope to build on his result towards the end of the year.
“I’m really happy with the weekend,” he said. “The aim coming here was to try and score some good points and pick up some strong finishes, and that’s exactly what we managed to do. The team has given me a great car again, and with the issue we had at Thruxton having been fixed, we were able to show more of our potential.”
Webb had a strong qualifying and finished seventh overall in race one, before staying out of trouble in race two to pick up a personal best fourth place. The result will be encouraging for him, as he fended off race winner Linus Lundqvist and battled championship leader Jamie Caroline.
“Considering I hadn’t been to Oulton Park before, it was great that we were able to produce a strong performance in both the wet and the dry. To get my first win in the Challenge Cup was great, and to then add a second and finish inside the top four overall in race two just made things better.
“We stayed out of trouble and have scored some good points, and I’m confident that we can build on these results and push for the overall podium positions next time out.”
Challenge Cup competitors can enter the series at lower costs, though can only compete at seven rounds, which must include Knockhill and Brands Hatch GP later in the year. Both York and Webb have been present for the opening four rounds.
