Rosso Makes It A Brands Double

Juan Rosso made it two wins in two races at Brands Hatch with victory in the penultimate round of the 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain.

Based on recent races, Round 29 proved to be a relatively quiet affair, with a lightning getaway winning it for Rosso. The Argentinian burst off the line to pass pole-sitter Simon Rudd into Paddock Hill Bend, with team-mate Jayde Kruger following him past.

Although Kruger looked to pass the leader, ultimately the Jamun Racing cars ran in formation for the remainder of the race to give Rosso his second win in the rookie championship campaign, with Kruger a comfortable second.

James Abbott and Harrison Scott pushed series debutant Rudd back to fifth place by Surtees corner on the opening lap, and proceeded to battle for third place for the entire race. An error on lap six for Scott seemed to cement the place for Abbott, but a battling performance saw Scott storm back and take the final podium place the laps from the end, ensuring him the runners-up spot in the championship.

Sam Brabham took fifth for JTR ahead of Andrew Richardson and Camren Kaminsky, the latter having lost ground after contact with Rudd at Paddock Hill Bend that ended the debutants race.

Max Marshall fought superbly despite a broken rear wing to finish eighth, just edging Connor Mills at the finish, with Luke Reade completing the top ten.
