It was back to the UK’s most famous circuit, Silverstone for rounds thirteen, fourteen and fifteen of the BRDC Formula 4 series.
Once again, Charlie Eastwood showed stunning pace in the official test, topping the timesheets in the third and final session with Diago Menchaca also showing good pace with second place overall in session two. Come qualifying, the pair qualified in seventh and ninth respectively whilst Rodrigo Fonseca struggled with traffic en route to twelfth.
In race one, Menchaca was embroiled in a four car battle for fifth, eventually crossing the line in a hard fought seventh place, Eastwood, who had been sitting comfortably in eighth (which would have given him the all-important pole for race two,) was once again pushed into a spin by a fellow competitor dropping him to the back.
Race two was a lottery with tyre choice and changing conditions making things difficult. Eastwood chose slicks and ran at the front early on, but dropped back when the heavens opened towards the end. From a lowly fifteenth on the grid, Rodrigo Fonseca drove superbly to charge to fourth by the end.
In race three it was heartbreak once again for Eastwood as a failed driveshaft prevented him from taking up his third place on the gird, the team having been confident of a debut win from the Northern Irishman. Menchaca brought some solace with tenth place, with fellow Mexican Fonseca in twelfth.
