Martins fi­nally breaks F4 duck

Motor Sport News - - Rounds - By Stephen Lick­o­r­ish

It took 41 at­tempts but Rafael Martins fi­nally se­cured his first Bri­tish F4 win in the sec­ond race in Cheshire.

He prof­ited from an er­ror from re­verse-grid pole­man Zane God­dard, who clipped the kerb at Knicker­brook which sent the dis­traught Aussie straight on and into the bar­ri­ers. Brazil­ian Martins then had to resist a stream of 10 cars to the flag, the Ar­den driver just beat­ing James Pull and Alex Quinn.

The other two races were un­event­ful and dom­i­nated by Car­lin duo Devlin De­francesco and Petru Florescu. De­francesco shot away in the opener, while new points leader Florescu beat the Cana­dian in race three for vic­tory.

Jamie Caro­line made good starts in races one and three to climb to third but he was un­able to make any fur­ther progress and had to set­tle for the bot­tom step of the podium on both oc­ca­sions. How­ever, the Ja­mun driver re­tired from race two on the first lap with a clutch is­sue.
