Cameron Twynham declared himself happy with his weekend’s racing at Brands Hatch during the third British F3 event of the 2013 season, the teenager scoring three National class podium finishes at the Kent circuit.
The West -Tec driver’s maiden run in an F312 Dallara chassis saw him compete for the podium spots throughout the weekend alongside team-mates Ed Jones and Chris Vlok, Twynham taking two second place finishes in the first and third races across the meeting.
Shadowing race one National class winner Sun Zheng for much of the race, Twynham eventually had to settle for second in class before claiming third in the following encounter, finishing the weekend with another runner-up spot to team-mate Jones in race three to round off a very positive meeting for the 17-year-old.
Twynham said: “Overall I’m extremely happy with how the weekend went. This was my first time competing with the Dallara F312 chassis and to score three podium finishes was very satisfying, as well as providing a real confidence boost.”
The European F3 Open racer’s best chance of victory arrived in race one as he challenged eventual class winner Zheng in the opening half of the race, the tight Brands Hatch GP track proving too difficult to find a key opportunity to overtake his CF Racing rival.
“It’s well-established that Brands Hatch is a tricky circuit to pass on, so I’m not too frustrated to have missed out on victory this weekend. I was getting to know the car throughout the event which, while challenging, was a great learning experience that I hope will stand me in good stead for the future.
