The final weekend of the BRDC British F3 2018 Championahip took place at Silverstone on October 13th and 14th.
With 3 rounds to race, hopes where high that Douglas Motorsport could round off the season with a good points haul. Race one took place on Saturday with Jamie Chadwick starting from P10 with Arvin Esmaeili starting from P16. Jamie Chadwick gained a place from the start and immediately put pressure on the 8th place car. She continued to pile on the pressure throughout the race but there was not way past and had to be content with a 9th placed finish. Esmaeili gained two places to finish in P14, with a few non finishers and a reverse grid race in race 2, it meant Arvin would start race 2 in 3rd position.
Race 2 was scheduled to start at 9.20am. However, there was one major problem – the weather. It was pouring rain which meant the start was delayed. When the race did start, it started behind the safety car. After completing two laps behind the safety car the red flag came out and the race was abandoned. As two laps were completed the result stood and full points awarded, meaning Arvin Esmaeili was awarded a 3rd place finish.
Race 3 was abandoned as the weather never improved. The final weekend of the season was a washout. However, Jamie Chadwick rounded off the season in 8th position which was a great result, a season which saw Jamie become the first woman to win a British F3 race.
