Morris Ends BARC Season With Dominant Double

Seb Morris was the class of the field during the final rounds of the Protyre Formula Renault BARC at Silverstone, a stunning double win ensuring the Welshman concludes his maiden season in single-seaters third in the championship.

On top form from the off, the 16 year old locked out pole position for both weekend’s races, with a best time of 56.377s.

Scorching away from the line at the beginning of the opening race, Morris never looked back, going on to claim a comfortable 2.6 second victory, posted the fastest lap of the race in the process.

Race two was a bit tougher, with two safety car periods cutting his advantage over the pack behind, but the Ginetta Ambassador coped with both perfectly to take his second win.

Morris ends the season with seven pole positions, more than any other driver, and tied with the most race wins, joining experience vice-champion Josh Webster on five, filling him with confidence ahead of his Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup (NEC) debut in Belgium next weekend.

“It’s been a fantastic weekend, to take two poles and the two wins is the perfect way to round-off the championship and to end the year top three in my first season is incredible”, said Seb. “If you can win races in BARC Renault I think it shows you can win in anything as it’s so tight. To beat a guy like Scott Malvern makes me feel really proud. Two wins here is fantastic, just what we needed and it’s given me such momentum ahead of my European debut at Spa next weekend.”
