Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Enaam Ahmed took his first Toy­ota Rac­ing Se­ries vic­tory in the re­v­erse grid se­cond race at Hamp­ton Downs cir­cuit.

Ahmed, who will com­pete in BRDC Bri­tish F3 with Car­lin in 2017, headed off Red Bull Ju­nior and For­mula Re­nault Eurocup-bound Richard Ver­schoor, set­ting a lap record in the process.

Ameya Vaidyanathan – who also com­peted in F3 last year with Car­lin – rounded out the top five.

An­other BRDC Bri­tish F3 con­vert and Ahmed’s team-mate at Dou­glas last year, Thomas Ran­dle, won the third race of the week­end and be­came the first Aussie to win the New Zealand Motor Cup for 42 years.

Ran­dle now sits se­cond in the stand­ings, 23 points be­hind Ver­schoor. Ahmed lies sixth, with two rounds re­main­ing at Taupo and Man­feild re­spec­tively.
