Toby Sowery would be unchallenged in the final BRDC British F3 Championship race of the weekend. The Lanan Racing driver started on pole and would break away around Silverstone, setting the fastest lap and winning by 4 seconds.

Sowery would break away, as the field jostled behind him on the opening lap. He’d eventually pull out a two second gap in as many laps as the order swapped behind him.

Callan O’Keeffe had started second, but soon found himself dropping backwards as James Pull pushed him to the outside through Brooklands. Ben Hingeley attempted to take advantage, but the two touched tyres, bouncing them off the circuit and O’Keeffe out of the race.

While Hingeley continued, he’d clearly damaged the suspension slightly, haemorrhaging places as the race went on. This allowed Pull and Enaam Ahmed past, with the former taking second place.

Behind them, the battle at the bottom of the top ten typically created excitement, with Jeremy Wahome coming out on top after a wheel-to-wheel battle with his teammate.

Sowery though was untouchable once again, completing an almost-perfect weekend with his second win of the season. In a reverse to race one, Pull was being caught by Ahmed in the final laps, but the #15 car held on for his seventh podium of the year.

In fourth, Chase Owen came home for his best result of the season, keeping out of trouble all race as Cameron Das and Jordan Cane pushed him all the way to the line. Despite his Saturday troubles, Guilhereme Samaia came home in seventh ahead of Nicolai Kjaergaard, Wahome and Hingeley.

After the race Sowery spoke to TCF: “Not quite as good as Ahmed’s three out of three,” he laughed, “but as things go that’s quite good.”

I didn’t expect such a good result at the start of the weekend, but after the first session, the car felt really good. I was so happy with the results and it’s good to be back on top.”
