Sennan Fielding holds off Carlins for memorable Win

1 Mins read

Another strong drive from multiple-race winner Sennan Fielding saw him cruise to victory in the second of the three MSA Formula races around Donington, reigniting his championship campaign.

It was a good start from pole sitter Fielding as none of the frontrunners made any great gains. Behind the leader, James Pull moved up one position, to third, ahead of his team mate. With second place Petru Florescu busy defending, Fielding used the opportunity to build up a sizable lead.

This soon disappeared though as Luis Leeds beached his car in the gravel after an incident with Devlin DeFrancesco, bringing out the safety car. As the lights went green, Fielding made a good start as Pull went side-by-side with Florescu for second place, eventually finding a way around the outside.

It didn’t last long for the Singaporean as he dropped to the back with a loose front wing. He’d eventually retire the car, but wasn’t the only front runner to encounter trouble. After a poor start, Alex Quinn found himself falling further back as he ran into the gravel.

The battle for second intensified as Florescu found himself under pressure from Carlin team mate Max Fewtrell. Behind them Rafa Martins made it a three-way scrap for the podium before Florescu pulled out fastest laps with only a few laps to spare.

He managed to catch up with Fielding, but wasn’t close enough to make the move allowing the JHR Developments driver to take his second win of the season with the Carlin drivers completing the podium.

Jamie Caroline would be the driver to benefit the most from the various incidents, finishing fifth after a race long battle with sixth place Billy Monger. The final lap was also marred by an incident further down the order, with Zane Goddard launching over the back of Nicolai Kjaergaard into the first turn, both drivers were unharmed.
