Top five finishes the reward for strong Spa weekend for Alex Gill

by Paul Hensby

Alex Gill continued his strong Formula Renault 2.0 NEC season with two top five finishes, with his best of fourth coming during Friday’s opening rain-affected opener at Spa-Francorchamps.

The British racer was in good form all weekend long at the Belgian circuit, and secured a fifth place finish during Saturday’s second race to move into the top five in the championship standings.

His Mark Burdett Motorsport team-mate Finlay Hutchison continued his own development programme with a couple of results amid the midfield, with both drivers impressing team principal Mark Burdett.

“It’s been a fantastic weekend overall, Alex did a great job to finish fourth and fifth,” said Burdett. “We were actually aiming for a couple of podiums and we had the pace, if it had been possible to get past some cars a bit earlier I think Alex could have been third in race two.

“Finlay has progressed again this weekend, we had a bigger grid for Spa but he was in the mid pack throughout. It’s always difficult with the changing weather Spa is notorious for, but he did a very good job again. We’re all really looking forward to being back in action next weekend now at Assen.”
