Here and Abroad

Euroformula Open Championship

Red Bull Junior Team driver Liam Lawson was victorious at the famed Pau Grand Prix circuit, with rain allowing the New Zealander to display his remarkable skill in wet weather conditions.

Lawson put behind the disappointment of his FIA Formula 3 Championship debut at the Spanish Grand Prix, which was marred with mechanical problems throughout, to end the weekend with a pole position and opening race win.

Driving for the Motopark squad, Lawson currently leads the championship on 64 points after four races so far this season.

“It was a great first couple of days,” Lawson said.

“We got straight on the pace and even in Qualifying 1 we were fastest but I think that there was more to come there, we didn’t push it to the maximum.

“In Race One I got a good start, settled into a good rhythm and enjoyed it.”

Germany’s Hockenheim will host the next round this weekend on 25-26 May.

Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia

Racing alongside the CAMS PAYCE Australian Formula 4 Championship at Sydney Motorsport Park, Aaron Love and Ryan Suhle enjoyed podium appearances across their three races.

Suhle, who was also competing in Formula 4 with Team BRM in Sydney, enjoyed victory in Race Two before a clutch failure at the start of the final race dented his points haul for the weekend.

Aaron Love enjoyed two podium finishes, finishing runner up in Sydney’s famed Jim Richards Endurance Trophy.

Love sits third in the series standings after two rounds, with Suhle only eight points behind in fourth.

Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge will next compete at Phillip Island as part of the Shannons Nationals, again alongside Formula 4, on 7–9 June.

Super3 Series

Supporting the Winton SuperSprint this weekend, Zak Best holds a slender three point lead in the Super3 Series at Best’s home track.

2018 Australian Formula 4 Champion Jayden Ojeda is fifth in the standings after the series opened its year at Phillip Island.
