Fellow David Mason London ambassador, Cameron Twynham, today secured his maiden victory in single-seater racing, as he reached the top step in the Copa Class in the European F3 Open for Team West-Tec earlier today.
Conditions at Circuit Paul Ricard have been tricky to say the very least, with low-lying fog and rain causing disruptions during practice and qualifying for all the drivers. However, the Market Harborough driver showed his determination, as the Safety Car was deployed at the start due to the fog causing conditions to be rather tricky for all. Cameron started third in Class, behind Emilio de Villota Motorsport’s Igor Urien and Che One Lim, alongside teammate Liam Venter.
Four laps passed before the Safety Car peeled in and the assembled field of drivers were able to enter into battle, with incidents and spins occurring on the first lap, as Urien found that he was to lose out early on.
The 17-year-old made sure he made an impact, and kept pushing until the chequered flag, celebrating his win just hours ago. Qualifying and Race 2 will take place at 9am and 1.35pm CET respectively, and if you want to see how this “Rising Star” gets on tomorrow, Motors TV are covering the European F3 Open LIVE…
