Bar­ni­coat takes maiden Euro­pean For­mula 3 tri­umph at a wet Hun­garor­ing for Hitech

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Brit Ben Bar­ni­coat claimed his maiden Euro­pean For­mula 3 win in the third race at the Hun­garor­ing last week­end.

The Hitech driver took the lead when team-mate Ge­orge Rus­sell col­lided with pole­man Max­i­m­il­ian Gun­ther – a crash that earned the Brit a three-place grid penalty for the next round at Pau.

Bar­ni­coat was able to con­trol the re­main­der of the race on a wet track. “It was an amaz­ing race for me and I’m ex­tremely happy,” said the Racing Steps Foun­da­tion-backed driver. “The track was like driv­ing on ice. It was very hard.”

Es­to­nian Ralf Aron won the open­ing race, while Prema Pow­erteam team-mate Gun­ther be­came the first 2016 two-time win­ner in the sec­ond con­test.
