Jonathan Hoggard claimed a lights to flag victory ahead of championship leader Kiren Jewiss in the opening British Formula 4 race at Silverstone.
Hoggard made a good start but couldn’t quite shake Jewiss and the pair spent the race running just under a second apart. Whenever Jewiss would make to close that gap, Hoggard would react and the Double R Racing driver was never quite close enough to make a move.
Jewiss sat patiently in second, waiting for Hoggard to make a mistake he could react to, but the Fortec driver soaked up the pressure to take his sixth win of th weekend.
Red Bull Juniors Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger passed Patrik Pasma at the race start to take third and fourth and spent the rest of the race battling for the final podium position. Doohan eventually finished ahead of his team-mate to take P3.
After a difficult qualifying, Ayrton Simmons struggled to make his way up through the order. The championship challenger was promoted a position when team-mate Jack Skelton span and dropped down the order, but he couldn’t climb any higher than sixth, finishing just over a second behind Pasma.
Manuel Sulaiman took seventh after a late battle with Paavo Tonteri, while Sebastian Priaulx and Luca Allen rounded out the top 10.
