AUSSIE RULES AS GODDARD CLAIMS MAIDEN F4 WIN AND TWO PODIUMS
Luis Leeds going off track to take second, meaning he was later demoted to third behind Max Fewtrell.
“I couldn’t believe it [when the safety car came out], I had a four second lead,” said Goddard. “I thought that was how it was going to finish but as I was driving down the pit straight the safety car turned its lights off. I’m delighted to win.”
Jamie Caroline lost the lead at the start of the second race but his attempt to claim it back at Sunny In was misjudged and both he and Defrancesco were out. This allowed Leeds to win from Goddard and the consistent Fewtrell.
The final race was very wet and Defrancesco was the victor after passing Goddard brilliantly around the outside of Tower. With Fewtrell again third, he is now points leader after teammate Petru Florescu had a tough weekend.
