LMP3 Cup driver Ran­dle seals TRS ti­tle

Motor Sport News - - Rac­ing News -

LMP3 Cup Cham­pi­onship driver Thomas Ran­dle claimed the Toy­ota Rac­ing Se­ries ti­tle in a dra­matic fi­nal week­end at Man­feild.

Hav­ing led the stand­ings ahead of the fi­nal week­end, Ran­dle man­aged only one podium dur­ing the fi­nal week­end of the sea­son, but third place in the fi­nal race of the se­ries – the New Zealand Grand Prix – was cru­cially enough to leapfrog him back ahead of Pe­dro Pi­quet to land the crown by five points, hav­ing passed the Brazil­ian on track dur­ing the race.

Ran­dle, who fin­ished fourth in the BRDC Bri­tish F3 Cham­pi­onship with Dou­glas Motorsport last year, suc­ceeds Mclaren Au­tosport BRDC Award win­ner Lando Nor­ris as TRS cham­pion and be­came the first Aus­tralian to claim the TRS crown.

In­dian Je­han Daru­vala won the 62nd run­ning of the New Zealand Grand Prix ahead of Mar­cus Arm­strong and Ran­dle, while Bri­tish F3 Au­tumn Tro­phy cham­pion Enaam Ahmed fin­ished sixth over­all with one vic­tory to his name.
