Jaime Caroline, after almost a year in single-seaters, collected his frist F4 British Championship win. The Fortec Motorsport driver had started on pole for the reverse grid encounter. Putting on another one of his incredible measured drives to enjoy a strong end to the season.

In the fight for the championship, Max Fewtrell beat main rival Sennan Fielding, ensuring the final goes to a thrilling final in race three, with just 3 points separating them.

From fifth on the grid, Fewtrell made an incredible start to take third behind team-mate Petru Florescu. Fielding wasn’t prepared to hold back though and was up to fifth himself, behind Rafa Martins.

Both Martins and Fielding closed on the battle for second as Florescu was clearly struggling for pace. The order remained stable though as Caroline extended his gap out front.

Having held off competition at the start, Caroline had extended his lead in the latter half to close slightly on Martins in the drivers table. It also ensures that Fortec have collected a win in three of the last four races.

Florescu collected his first podium since Snetterton with Fewtrell settling for third. Martins and Fielding would round out the top five, much to Fielding’s frustration.

In sixth would finish Ayrton Simmons. He is still on course to secure second in the rookie standings after rival Alex Quinn secured the championship at Silverstone. Simmons held off James Pull who enjoy a lonely second half to the race after his dominant win on Saturday. Over two seconds further back, Quinn lead a queue of cars for eighth.
