Round 4 of the 2019 British F3 championship brought the teams and drivers to Croft on June 15th and 16th.
What was meant to be a two race weekend was cut to only one race due to a downpour at the beginning of race 1. The action got underway behind the safety car, but it was quickly deemed that the conditions were not safe to race in. The race was postponed until Sunday with hope that race 2 could be rescheduled to a date later in the season.
Without a car on the front 3 rows of the grid for Sunday’s race, it was always going to be a struggle to get onto the podium. An 8th place for Zak O’Sullivan was, for him, a disappointing result although it was enough to take 3rd place in the rookie race and keep him in 2nd place in the overall championship standings.
Meanwhile, Gus Burton made up 5 places from his starting position on the grid to finish in a well-earned 5th place. That’s his sixth 5th place finish in 8 races and a result which keeps him in 4th place in the overall championship standings.
Lorcan Hanafin, who started from the very back of the grid, was able to make up 12 places to reach the checkered flag in 13th position, while Bailey Voisin finished one ahead of Lorcan in 12th.
For Freddie Tomlinson the only race of the weekend gave him his best result of the season so far – 11th place and 6th in the rookie race.
