2015 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship graduates Zane Goddard and Luis Leeds have stamped their authority in the most recent round of British F4, held last weekend at Silverstone.
Goddard was the class of the field aboard his Double R prepared Formula 4 all weekend, claiming two race wins with some spectacular overtaking manoeuvres.
“I thought I was going to have to pull something pretty special out of the bag before the race,” explained Goddard.
“I had to make two big lunges. Thankfully they both worked out. I didn’t know if I was going to pull them off or not. I tried to get past as soon as I could and fortunately I did. I was then able to stay in the lead.
Goddard has enjoyed a remarkably strong second-half of the year in British F4, after making his circuit racing debut in the 2015 CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship with Team BRM.
“Unfortunately we had a lot of bad luck in the first part of the year, but we have turned things around,” Goddard said.
“We have really shown our speed again here. The team did a great job and now we have another two wins to add to the tally. Hopefully we can finish the year with some more.”
Six drivers will now battle for British F4 title honours in the final round of the year at Brands Hatch. Australian Luis Leeds is well within contention for the title, currently sitting third overall and 19 points behind leader Sennan Fielding.
Leeds clinched two podium finishes in the final two races at Silverstone, once again joining his compatriot Goddard on the podium for the weekend’s final race.
“I got good points in the championship and scored more points than any of the other contenders although it wasn’t my greatest of races,” Leeds said.
“I’m still happy to bring home good points though. I was thinking about the championship and to finish two out of three races in front of Sennan this weekend means it’s been a good weekend.”
