Twynham Caps Off F3 Debut With Stunning Podium

1 Mins read

Cameron Twynham began his assault on the European F3 Open in fine style with a class podium finish on his category debut in the championship’s Winter Series at Paul Ricard.

The 17 year old belied his inexperience in the category to finish third in the competitive Copa Class around the former French Grand Prix venue.

The former Intersteps and Formula Renault BARC racer was a superb second fastest in the opening practice session on Friday, going on to qualify fifth in class.

Running with Team West-Tec, Twynham enjoyed a good battle with former BARC rival and team-mate Sean Walkinshaw throughout the single race, emerging in front to finish third in class.

“It’s an incredible achievement to step-up into F3 and score a podium first time out, so I’m delighted with the result,” said Twynham. “I’ve worked so hard over the winter to be in this position and a podium offers even more incentive to keep improving.

“I had a great scrap with Sean, which was very close and hard fought but never went beyond that. As team-mates it’s great that we can have that trust in each other. I had a lot of fun out there and can’t wait for the next round.”
