Here’s part two of today’s summary of racing action from around the World.

World Series FR 3.5 – Carlin’s Robert Wickens handled difficult conditions at the Nürburgring perfectly to notch his second race victory of the season from pole position on slick tyres and on a damp track in race one. Kevin Korjus then recorded his third victory in race two from all the way back in 13th, while Wickens extended his championship lead.

NASCAR – With great work in the pits when it counted most, opportunistic Denny Hamlin held off charging Matt Kenseth to win the Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway. Hamlin beat Kenseth to the finish line by .281 seconds, with Kyle Busch following in third. Paul Menard finished fourth, and series points leader Carl Edwards was fifth.

BTCC – Matt Neal held on against a rapidly closing Mat Jackson to win Croft’s first race of the day and repeated the trick in race two. Mat Jackson went on to win the third race ahead of Rookie Nick Foster in a best ever second.

British F3 – Lucas Foresti pulled off a remarkable victory in a weather-afflicted 10th round on Saturday, despite racing on the ‘wrong’ tyres, while championship newcomer Harry Tincknell scored his maiden F3 in an incident-strewn 11th round on Sunday morning. Championship leader Felipe Nasr mastered the treacherous wet track in the afternoon to claim his fourth victory of the season.

Indy lights – Esteban Guerrieri started from pole position in the David Hobbs 100 at the Milwaukee Mile and finally managed to translate the best starting position into his first race win of his US motor sport career.

Eurocup FR 2.0 – On home soil, Josef Kaufmann Racing recorded their first Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 victory at the Nürburgring with Robin Frijns leading race one from start to finish, holding off Carlos Sainz Junior, who came second to Daniil Kvyat in race two.


One thought on “Weekend Summary, Part 2

  1. Fantastic category….has a 5 good drivers owe nothing to any pilot teams in f-1, logical that require more experience…they’re Vergne, Ricciardo, Wickens, Rossi and Korjus..
