A double win for Zane Goddard saw him move up to equal seventh in the British F4 Championship. The Australian had his best weekend since Croft collecting 58 points during his Silverstone encounter.

The Double R Racing driver, who had qualified fourth for the opening race, stormed through to the lead in the early stages. He ran away from the field over the course of the opening race taking victory by 7 seconds. It was feat he repeated in the final spectacle, once again taking the top step.

“It’s been a great weekend, two wins is fantastic and big thanks to the guys at Double R for giving me a great car”, said Goddard.

“The team and I have really put our heads down, we put a lot of work into the car and it’s really paying off now with results like this. Two wins here, four for the season and eight podiums in total, there’s a lot to be happy about. I’m definitely proud of what we’ve done.”

His two wins made Goddard one of the highest scoring drivers that weekend and continues his recent form of one-off and one on-form weekend.

“Zane has done a great job this weekend, I thought we’d go well at Silverstone and two wins from three isn’t bad going”, said team principal Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt, “It’s been great for Zane to have his dad over here this weekend from Australia as well. It’s the first time he’s seen him race in the UK so to have two wins to celebrate, it couldn’t have been much better.”

Double R have had further success in recent weeks with Matheus Leist winning the BRDC British F3 title at Donington. Unlike Leist, Goddard has spent much of the year as a lone competitor, though for once was joined by Carrie Schreiner who also picked up a point.

“We’re pleased Carrie could get back into the points on her last weekend”, added Hieatt, “She’s shown good pace in the few races she’s done in the UK this year, Thruxton being the highlight, and it’s not easy to jump between the ADAC championship and the British one. She’s shown a lot of promise along the way, it’s been great working with her this season.”
