Pasma doubles his fun at the Speedway with second win as Arden score one-two

  • Pasma wins again from pole position at Rockingham.
  • Priaulx scores fifth podium of season.
  • Jewiss snatches final podium spot at last corner after titanic battle with title rival Simmons.
  • Skelton takes first Rookie class win.

12 AUGUST, 2018 – Having finally taken his maiden win in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost earlier in the weekend, Patrik Pasma was at it again in the final race of the Rockingham Motor Speedway meeting. The Finn leading an Arden one-two finish with Sebastian Priaulx second.

Just as he did in round 19, poleman Pasma led flawlessly from lights-to-flag. Perhaps the only blemish a slight lock-up into Deene hairpin on the opening lap.

The Finn can be forgiven for that though after what has been something of a breakthrough weekend which has seen him marry speed with consistency to enable him to have his most successful weekend in single-seaters. He was devastatingly quick around the 1.94-mile Northamptonshire track at times and is now on the hunt for plenty more silverware in the remaining races this season.

“It’s been a brilliant weekend with two victories,” said Pasma. “I’m so happy. Our pace has been really good since Friday. The team have done a fantastic job so big thanks to them.

“Priaulx was pushing me hard and then the Safety Car came. I managed to get a good restart and build a little gap.

“These results give me a great boost for the rest of the season. We need to work hard before Knockhill which is the next meeting to get even more wins.”

Behind Pasma at the start there was once again plenty of drama as the field charged into Deene hairpin. This time it was Arden’s Red Bull Juniors Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger who came to grief. The pair making contact and curtailing what had been a strong point scoring weekend for both of them.

Following the race, Hauger was handed a five place grid penalty to be taken at the next possible opportunity for driving in a manner incompatible with general safety.

The commotion ahead in the opening exchanges saw Priaulx profit most. After missing out on an excellent result in the preceding race due to contact at the very same corner, it was fitting that fortune favoured the Guernseyman. He duly picked up the pieces as his team-mates came unstuck and chased Pasma home untroubled on the way to second place and an Arden one-two.

“We got a good start and my team-mates tapped each other which meant I could capitalise,” explained Priaulx. “I got P2 on the first lap and that was the key to my race really.

“I had good pace at the start and I felt like I could try to overtake Patrik at some points, but I felt I didn’t quite have enough to pull it off with minimal risk.

“I got fastest lap which was really good and underlines the pace I have got.

“I’m really happy to finish on the podium after an up and down weekend. We got tapped off the circuit in race two which wasn’t our fault so I’m happy to end with a podium.

“We’ve had the pace for a podium all weekend so we deserved this result. We just need to improve a bit in qualifying, but we’ll learn and find a way to adapt.”

After a Safety Car period triggered by the need to retrieve Paavo Tonteri’s stricken Double R-prepared racer on lap five following contact with the wall on the exit of the final corner, there was no shortage of excitement behind the Arden duo.

As the race progressed spectators were treated to a grandstand finish with Ayrton Simmons attempting to fend off championship rival Kiern Jewiss and Johnathan Hoggard. The latter getting passed by Jewiss on lap nine as he attempted to make a move of his own on Simmons. Instead it was Jewiss who had the last laugh, expertly making his way up the order from 12th on the grid and finishing with a flourish.

Having hounded Simmons lap after lap, a better run through the final chicane on the very last lap set Jewiss up with the opportunity to steal third in the dying moments. He did so superbly as he used the momentum from a better exit onto the straight to out-drag Simmons in the run to the finish line. An unquestionably sweet moment for the Double R ace who has now extended his championship lead to 45 points.

“I got a really good start for the first time this weekend after two not very good ones,” explained Jewiss.

“I got a good launch and ran around the outside into turn two, but I found myself in the middle of everything with the two Red Bull Juniors making contact ahead and then people trying to get up my inside as I braked.

“I had to back out so there wasn’t any contact to stay in the race. I then just set about picking my way through the field and the Safety Car definitely helped. It was just a shame it had to come out due to one of the Double R-prepared cars.

“I knew once someone caught Hoggard it would give him something to think about and when that happened that’s when I really started to pressure Simmons.

“I felt that if I could get my nose in there it might be enough to put Ayrton off a bit and that’s what I did coming into the chicane.

“I thought he would shut the door immediately which he didn’t do quite as much as I expected. His tyres were obviously coming to the end of their life so he had a big slide up the banking through the last corner whereas I had a lot of traction and I got him on the run to the line.

“It was a really exciting race and it feels good to be on the podium, as well as have the last laugh in the championship battle this weekend.

“Let’s see what happens at Knockhill. We need to remain focused and try to do what Pasma did this weekend. We need to get on pole, win the first race, have a steady second race and then pick up the win in the third one.

“That’s what we will be aiming for and if we can take the reverse grid race as well to win the Ford Triple Crown Award and the £10,000 that goes with it then even better!”

It was incredibly close over the line with Hoggard just a couple of tenths adrift of Simmons and Josh Skelton only a further three tenths further back having been in mix for the final podium spot.

The JHR Developments driver still had plenty to celebrate though, having claimed his first Rookie class win after coming out on top in a skirmish with Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing). The Mexican lost out after the Safety Car restart following contact, but did well to pick up the final points paying position, behind Fortec Motorsports’ Hampus Ericsson, Jamie Sharp (Sharp Motorsport) and Lucca Allen (Fortec Motorsports).

Elsewhere, a 10 second time penalty for a false start for JHR Developments’ Manuel Sulaiman put him on the back foot for the rest of the race, leaving him finishing in 11th despite coming home eighth on the road.

Arden 1-2-3 at the Rock as Pasma takes maiden win

  • Lights-to-flag win for Pasma.
  • Arden lockout the podium with Red Bull Juniors Doohan and Hauger finishing second and third respectively.
  • Storming opening lap enables Simmons to reduce Jewiss’ championship lead.

11 AUGUST, 2018 – Arden and Patrik Pasma took victory in round 19 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost at Rockingham Motor Speedway in emphatic fashion. Pasma recorded a lights-to-flag maiden win in the series ahead of team-mates Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger. The two rookies also securing an Arden one-two in the Rookie class.

Poleman Pasma was flawless from the outset and found an excellent rhythm out front after a textbook getaway to finally score his first single-seater win and record fastest lap in the process.

It was plain sailing out front for Pasma who was chased home by Doohan and Hauger, as Arden stamped its authority all over proceedings.

“It feels so good to win my first race in single-seaters,” said an elated Pasma. “It was quite lonely out front. It was a pretty straightforward race.

“In the first few laps Jack was able to get a tow from me, but after that I managed to build a little gap and that was key.

“The car felt really good. The whole team has done an amazing job and this result is the reward.

“We’ve got two more races tomorrow. It might well be wet, but I still think we’ve got a great chance for more excellent results.”

Added Doohan: “We were missing a little bit of pace compared to Pasma, but that’s something I hope we can find overnight. I think we need to find something in sector three.

“I’m still pleased to pick up the podium and all these points for the championship. I need to have a few more consistently high-scoring races and then everything is possible with regard to the title.

“It looks like the conditions will be different tomorrow with the weather. We start slightly further back in the reverse-grid race so we need to adapt quicker than the others in those conditions to make our way to the front.”

Said Arden team manager Ben Bloomfield: “This is a fantastic result and I couldn’t really ask for much more.

“Everyone in the team has done a phenomenal job this weekend. We’ve got really good pace and I’m so pleased for everyone. We can go out and celebrate now and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what we can achieve tomorrow. We start from pole again in race three. Race two will be a little bit trickier, but hopefully we should come away from this weekend with a very decent haul of points.

“For Patrik to get his first win is absolutely fantastic. He’s had his ups and downs and probably had more than his fair share of bad luck so he’s understandably over the moon.

“We’ve got really good momentum now in the championship. It’s so competitive in this series. It always has been and always will be.

“There are three or four drivers who still have a really good chance of winning the title this year so that bodes well and we’re already excited for what’s to come next year too.

“The level of competition is so high, especially when you look at the times here with the leading drivers separated by just thousandths of a second.”

Hauger earnt third place after getting the jump on Kiern Jewiss (Double R Racing) off the line. However, Jewiss refused to relinquish the podium place and made the Norwegian work hard for third. The two dicing through the opening sequence of corners and Hauger finally making the move stick through Yentwood.

“I got a really good start and then I tried to go around the outside of Jewiss into turn two,” explained Hauger. “I kept my position alongside Jewiss after that and then got down his inside at the next corner and that was pretty much my race really.

“A 1-2-3 is a really fantastic result for Arden which I’m really proud to be a part of and I’m also pleased to score all these points for the championship, outscoring Simmons and Jewiss.

“It will be wet tomorrow I think. I like those conditions so it should be a lot of fun.”

Fast-starter Ayrton Simmons pounced on Jewiss with a late dive down the inside of his championship rival at Tarzan on the opening lap. The JHR Developments ace snatching fourth place and went on to keep Jewiss at bay for the duration to reduce his gap to the championship leader to 27 points.

Jewiss then had to contend with fellow Ginetta Junior graduate Sebastian Priaulx in his mirrors. Fortec Motorsports’ Johnathan Hoggard reeled in Messrs Simmons, Jewiss and Priaulx in the closing stages, but was unable to make any further progress up the order having started eighth. His seventh place finish earning him reverse-grid pole for round 20.

JHR Developments driver Manuel Sulaiman picked up a couple of places to finish eighth and in doing so broke into the top-10 in the standings, while Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing) and Josh Skelton (JHR Developments) bagged the final points paying positions. The latter prevailing after an entertaining battle for 10th place with Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing), Jamie Sharp (Sharp Motorsport), as well as the Fortec Motorsports pair of Lucca Allen and Hampus Ericsson.

Ford’s rising stars are back on track at Rockingham at 1045 tomorrow for the reverse-grid race. The Rockingham finale, in which Pasma will go from the pole, is set to be televised live on ITV4 at 1550.

Double pole for Pasma at Rockingham

  • Pasma triumphs in fierce battle for pole.
  • Front row lockout for Arden with Doohan lining up alongside Pasma.

11 AUGUST, 2018 – For the second time in the space of two weeks Patrik Pasma claimed a superb double pole in qualifying for the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Having achieved the feat at Snetterton, the Arden racer did so once again by overcoming a fierce challenge from team-mates Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger, as well as Kiern Jewiss.

Like many in the field Pasma’s fastest lap came in the first half of the session, with drivers unable to find more time as track temperatures increased.

The Finn put down a benchmark of 1m 18.742s to go 0.105s clear of Double R Racing’s Jewiss with 10 minutes left of the session to run.

Meanwhile, Hauger and Doohan were in the thick of the fight for pole too. Both drivers just over a tenth adrift.

However of the top four drivers, Doohan proved the only one capable of improving his lap time as the session came to an end. The Aussie recorded a lap of 1m 18.823s to leap up to the front row with just minutes to spare and ensure a front row lockout for Arden.

While the top four were separated by only 0.158s in the battle for pole for round 19, the margins were even closer in the fight for pole for round 21 which is based on second-fastest lap times. The same quartet were covered by a mere 0.079s, with Jewiss just edging out Doohan to secure a front row grid slot alongside poleman Pasma.

“That was a great qualifying,” said Pasma. “I’m really pleased with pole. It makes your life so much easier for the races.

“We’ve had the pace since we did the test here last week so even though the times were really tight, we were confident.

“It’s possible to get a massive tow down the main straight which will make it tough for me with the guys behind, but I think I can keep them there.

“I think the track temperature went up as the session progressed and that’s why people struggled to improve.”

Added Doohan: “It was a really close session. I would have liked a little bit more. After I recorded my quickest lap I think I pushed a little too hard on the following laps.

“Nevertheless, we start from P2 and we can fight for the win from there. Patrik is very fast here though so it will be tough.

“Our race pace is better than the guys behind, but Patrik has a little bit of an edge at the moment. Luckily he is my team-mate so hopefully I can take a look at his data!”

Manuel Sulaiman put in his best qualifying performance of the season by bagging fifth place on the grid and out-qualifying JHR Developments team-mates Ayrton Simmons and Josh Skelton. The pair qualifying eighth and 11th respectively for this afternoon’s race. Sulaiman will however start from 10th on the grid in round 19 due to a five-place grid penalty handed to him for driving in a manner incompatible with general safety at the previous meeting.

Ahead of Simmons will line-up Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing) and Sebastian Priaulx (Arden), while Johnathan Hoggard (Fortec Motorsports) and Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing) completed the top-10.

The first race of the weekend follows at 1415.

Jewiss and Pasma fastest in ultra-competitive Rockingham free practice

  • Kiern Jewiss beats Patrik Pasma to top spot by three-thousandths of a second.
  • Top 5 covered by less than a tenth of a second at the Speedway and top 9 drivers by half a second.

10 AUGUST, 2018 – Kiern Jewiss and Double R Racing came out on top in a closely fought battle for supremacy in free practice at Rockingham Motor Speedway for the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost.

The championship leader recorded the fastest lap of the day with just moments to spare in free practice two. A time of 1m 18.655s denied Arden’s Patrik Pasma a clean sweep by a mere three-thousandths of a second. The Finn having set the pace in the damp first session.

“It’s been a pretty positive day and we’re pretty happy,” said Jewiss. “We were a bit unfortunate in practice one with a little technical niggle, but the rest of the day was good.

“I’m looking forward to tomorrow and we’ll see what happens in qualifying. I think we’re in a good place with the car. There are a few areas I can find a little more time. It’s looking very close and I expect it to be that way for the rest of the weekend.

“We probably went a bit early in free practice one. We did some running at the beginning when the track was still pretty wet and that’s partly why we didn’t figure quite as high in the first session.

“Snetterton was disappointing for us, but we’re looking to bounce back and I think we can here.

“The weather conditions look like they will be pretty mixed as well so we’ve got to try to maximise every opportunity when we can.

“It’s great to come into the weekend as a British Racing Drivers’ Club Rising Star. I’m hoping to celebrate my induction with a win and to represent the Club in the best way possible.”

Added Pasma: “It’s been a good day. It could have been better in FP2. I made a few mistakes which cost me a few tenths. I got caught in traffic as well which didn’t help.

“I think we have got the car in the right place for tomorrow. We’ll get a good rest tonight and use our pace to fight for top honours.

“We’ll be aiming to get a double pole like we did a fortnight ago at Snetterton. I like the profile of Rockingham, particularly its fast corners and long straight.”

It wasn’t solely the top two on the combined timesheet who shone out on the Northamptonshire track. As the chequer fell on proceedings, Arden’s Red Bull Junior Team drivers Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger were within in a tenth of Jewiss’ time, along with Jewiss’ Double R team-mate Paavo Tonteri.

“It was difficult out there due to the track being wet and then drying out,” explained Doohan. “When the track was dry I was able to push more to find more time, but it wasn’t quite enough compared to my team-mate so we ended up just a small margin off him.

“Our race pace is looking really good and that was our main goal today to ensure that we have a strong pace for the races.

“Rockingham is an interesting circuit because it has a very abrasive surface, but is also pretty low on grip. The banking is really cool. Coming onto the main straight and making sure you carry enough speed through the final chicane is a fun challenge. It’s all about how much you can be on the limit without hitting the wall!”

Arden’s Sebastian Priaulx, as well as the JHR Developments trio of Ayrton Simmons, Manuel Sulaiman and Josh Skelton were all in touch of the pacesetting time to ensure that the top nine drivers were covered by just half a second. Simmons very much at the fore in free practice one, just 0.061s slower than pacesetter Pasma.

Johnathan Hoggard fractionally got the better of Fortec Motorsports team-mate Lucca Allen by 0.039s to break into the top-10.

Official qualifying is set for 1020 tomorrow ahead of a 1415 start for the championship’s 19th round. There are two further races on Sunday, the second of which will be screened live on ITV4 at 1550.

Hauger heads super-close Rockingham test

  • Arden’s Dennis Hauger beats team-mate Patrik Pasma to top spot by three-hundredths of a second.
  • Top 10 covered by less than a second at the Speedway.

2 AUGUST, 2018 – Just days after taking his fourth win in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, Dennis Hauger found himself on top once again in testing at Rockingham Motor Speedway.

Arden’s fine run of form showed no sign of letting up on the back of two wins and a one-two finish at the weekend, with Hauger recording the quickest time of the test in the morning – a lap of 1m 19.515s. Team-mate Patrik Pasma followed up by setting the pace in the afternoon with a time just 0.030s adrift of Hauger.

The battle for supremacy on the timesheet was a closely fought affair among the leading protagonists, with Kiern Jewiss and Jack Doohan (Arden) completing the top four and both within less than two tenths of a second of Hauger’s time.

Jewiss’ Double R Racing team-mate and the newest member of the British F4 winners’ club Paavo Tonteri completed the top five, edging out Manuel Sulaiman and Johnathan Hoggard. The latter pair the quickest runners for their respective teams, JHR Developments and Fortec Motorsports.

Sebastian Priaulx and Sebastian Alvarez ensured that all Arden and Double R Racing prepared cars wound up in the top-10. The two drivers sandwiching Fortec Motorsports’ Hampus Ericsson on the timesheet.

The F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost will be back in action at Rockingham Motor Speedway in just over a week on 11/12 August for the upcoming rounds of the season.

Simmons on pole after Pasma penalty

  • Pasma quickest in qualifying, but penalty sees Simmons take pole for round 16.
  • Pasma on pole for round 18 courtesy of quickest second-fastest lap.

28 JULY, 2018 – Arden’s Patrik Pasma was quickest in qualifying at Snetterton for the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost, but Ayrton Simmons will start from pole in round 16 due to Pasma taking a 10 place grid penalty handed to him at Croft.

Pasma just got the better of JHR Developments driver Ayrton Simmons on the timesheet, both drivers putting in excellent qualifying performances. The latter looked likely to take his fourth pole of the season, but Pasma’s flyer in the closing stages just bettered his time. A lap of 1m 51.266s left the pair separated by only 0.009s at the end of proceedings.

“It wasn’t a perfect lap, but it was still good enough for P1,” said Pasma. “We now need to concentrate on the races. It’s going to be a busy day. We need to keep our heads down and work hard.

“I was second-last with about 10 minutes left on the clock, but I stayed calm. We didn’t have many laps, but the laps we did get were excellent.

“Our race pace is looking strong so I go into the races with plenty of confidence this weekend.”

“I went off on my last lap after working out where I could improve on the previous lap,” added Simmons. “I tried to go flat in turn one, but it didn’t quite work out.

“It’s an amazing result to have qualified on the front row considering where we were yesterday. We were very much on the back foot due to technical problems. The team have done fantastic work.

“Starting at the front is good, but obviously we want to win so there’s still work to be done in the race.

“There’s a little bit of a gap to Jewiss at the top of the standings, but qualifying ahead of him is a good start and now we need to make sure we outscore him in the race.”

Dennis Hauger (Arden) was quickest rookie and will start on the front row following Pasma’s penalty. Meanwhile, championship leader Kiern Jewiss (Double R Racing) had to settle for a second row grid slot, citing the windy conditions as having hampered his performance.

Jack Doohan (Arden) and Johnathan Hoggard (Fortec Motorsports) set identical lap times and completed the quintet all within four tenths of Pasma’s pole lap.

Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing) netted sixth on the grid ahead of Friday afternoon pacesetter Sebastian Priaulx (Arden), as well as Manuel Sulaiman (JHR Developments), Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing) and Josh Skelton (JHR Developments) who completed the top-10.

The first race of the weekend follows at 1400 with race two at 1625.

Hauger brings home second win of the season

  • Win number two for Arden’s Dennis Hauger after race-long duel with Double R ace Kiern Jewiss.
  • Hauger makes two trips to top step of podium with fourth Rookie class win of season.
  • Patrik Pasma ensures two Arden drivers on the rostrum with third place finish.

23 JUNE, 2018 – Dennis Hauger put in an inch-perfect performance in his Arden-prepared racer to take his second win of the season in round 13 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost at Croft.

Poleman Hauger withstood race long pressure from Double R Racing’s Kiern Jewiss. The pair were in a league of their own. Although less than half a second separated them as they crossed the line, there was a further 10 seconds back to the rest of the field.

“It was a hard race, but I only made one mistake in turn five and that gave Jewiss a chance to get closer,” said Hauger.

“I held my nerve and managed to keep him behind for the entire race which was great and it was fantastic to get the win.

“I got an excellent start and I hope for two more tomorrow to make my life easier in the races.

“If we can win from pole in the final race tomorrow then we can go into the summer break feeling pretty happy.

“It’s not easy to overtake here so the second race will be tricky, but well try our best.

“We were able to manage the tyres well which is encouraging and I think we can look after them well throughout the rest of the weekend.”

Added Jewiss: “I was thinking about the championship in that race. There was no point in pushing for something when perhaps the pace wasn’t quite good enough to pull off a straightforward overtake.

“We looked after the tyres well which should help us tomorrow. We’ve got to keep our nose clean and try to pick up as many points as we can.

“I was hoping we would be able to push on and create a gap back to the field. It made things easier for me as I didn’t have to worry about guys attacking from behind.”

Patrik Pasma (Arden) got the better of Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing) at the start to steal third, which he held for the duration as Tonteri chased him home in fourth and picked up second in the Rookie class.

“We’re making a bit of habit of getting podiums now,” said Pasma. “I cannot be too happy with third because I want to win, but it’s still good points for the championship.

“There are two more races to go this weekend and we need to get as many points as we can and hopefully a win.

“I got past Tonteri off of the line and couldn’t quite bridge the gap to the front two.

“We need to look through the data to see where we can improve for tomorrow’s races.”

Ayrton Simmons came home in fifth which meant Jewiss extended his championship lead over the JHR Developments driver to 24 points. However, Simmons will have the chance to strike back in the second race of the weekend from which he will start on the front row, while Jewiss will set off from fifth.

Johnathan Hoggard (Fortec Motorsports) brought home sixth, which crucially earns him pole for the partially reversed grid race tomorrow, as he bids to add to his tally of two victories this season.

Elsewhere, seventh and eighth place finishes for Josh Skelton and Manuel Sulaiman respectively ensured that all JHR Developments runners finished inside the top 10.

Sebastian Priaulx got shuffled a couple of places down the order in the opening exchanges. It left him in the middle of an entertaining three-way scrap for ninth which also involved Hampus Ericsson (Fortec Motorsports) and Jamie Sharp (Sharp Motorsport).

Ericsson and Priaulx bagged the points leaving Sharp just missing out, ahead of Lucca Allen (Fortec Motorsports) and Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing).

Jack Doohan’s (Arden) nightmare Saturday continued. Having had his chances of pole thwarted due to technical problems, further issues reared their head from the outset, forcing him to limp into the pits at the end of the opening lap.

Round 14 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost will take place at 1245 tomorrow, with the final race of the weekend kicking off at 1600. Both will be screened live on ITV4.

Jewiss romps to victory and into championship lead

  • Perfection from poleman Jewiss to dominate final race of Oulton Park meeting.
  • Flying Finns Pasma and Tonteri complete the podium, with the latter taking the Rookie class win.

10 JUNE, 2018 – Kiern Jewiss and Double R Racing romped to victory in round 12 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost at Oulton Park.

Jewiss was faultless from pole position and untouchable for the duration of the 15 lap contest, scampering off into the distance and winning by a margin of almost eight seconds. He also set the fastest lap on his penultimate tour of the circuit with a lap of 1m 24.191s.

It was the perfect end to the weekend for the 15-year-old who has looked the fastest driver on circuit throughout the weekend. His superb performance sees him leave the Cheshire circuit leading the championship by 16 points, with chief title rival Ayrton Simmons only able to finish eighth.

“I got off the line just like I wanted to,” said Jewiss. “It meant I could take the racing line into the first corner and then crack on with my race, leaving everyone else to battle behind.

“We knew we had the pace this weekend after free practice and we wanted to finish with fastest lap on the last lap of the final race, but we had to settle for doing it on the penultimate lap. We were having some fun out there.

“I want to say big thanks again to Double R, FM Conway, HCL Technologies and MB Partners, as well as everyone who has supported me this weekend: friends, family and fans.

“As soon as I pulled away well off the line I felt so happy and pleased to make amends for race one.

“It feels great to finally end a weekend leading the championship. It’s taken a little longer than we would have liked to get there, but hopefully we can stay on top until the very end now.”

Behind Jewiss, Patrik Pasma and Paavo Tonteri jockeyed for the remaining podium spots. Both drivers have put in strong performances this weekend. The two Finn’s seemingly inseparable on track for much of it and entertaining spectators as a result.

Pasma’s second place was his third podium of the season and second of the weekend. Meanwhile, third for Tonteri was a welcome appearance on the rostrum after he had already bagged two fourth place finishes in the space of 24 hours.

Third place also secured Tonteri the Rookie class win, with Dennis Hauger and Jack Doohan completing the rookie podium after the Red Bull Junior Team drivers put on a fantastic wheel-to-wheel display throughout the race.

“We’ve scored a lot of good points this weekend,” said Pasma. “We just need to keep working hard and try to get the win at the next race weekend.

“My start wasn’t the best which cost me some time off the line, but I managed to at least maintain my position.

“Kiern pulled a big gap at the beginning of the race, but I started to match him towards the end so that was encouraging.

“Then I had Tonteri attacking me which meant I had to defend and that gave Jewiss a chance to pull away even more.

“I’m really enjoying racing in British F4 and I’m sure my first win is just around the corner.”

Added Tonteri: “I’ve known Patrik for eight years. We’ve been team-mates in the past. We have a special rivalry and great respect for each other which allows us to have excellent races.

“I got a decent amount of points this weekend. I was targeting podiums so it’s nice to end the weekend with one.

“We didn’t really show all of the potential and pace we had which means I’m not completely happy. I want to win and will keep working hard towards that.

“Winning needs a bit of luck. We haven’t quite had that luck this season, but hopefully it’s on the way.

“All the points I have scored this weekend are definitely going to help me in the championship.”

In amongst the rookie runners was Hampus Ericsson who achieved his best result of the campaign so far in fourth for Fortec Motorsports. The Swede did brilliantly to keep Hauger at bay.

Ericsson’s team-mate Johnathan Hoggard looked to be on for an excellent result too. He pulled off one of the overtakes of the weekend by going around the outside of Doohan at Lodge Corner, only for his race to be thwarted by a technical problem.

Manuel Sulaiman’s upturn in form continued in the final race of the weekend. The JHR Developments driver bagged another haul of points in seventh, having made his way up the order from 10th.

Contact between Simmons and Hoggard, with Simmons running off the track on lap seven allowed the Mexican to sneak through into eighth ahead of his team-mate and fellow JHR Developments runner Josh Skelton.

Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing) picked up the final point, ahead of Lucca Allen (Fortec Motorsports).

Elsewhere, Jamie Sharp (Sharp Motorsport) and Sebastian Priaulx’s (Arden) torrid weekends continued, with both retiring from the race due to technical gremlins. The former having made up three places in the opening exchanges.

Hauger takes maiden British F4 win following Jewiss penalty

  • Hauger scores his first single-seater win after enthralling battle with Jewiss.
  • Jewiss finishes first on road, but demoted to second after being handed three second time penalty.
  • Jewiss takes championship lead despite penalty.

9 JUNE, 2018 – Arden’s Dennis Hauger took his maiden victory in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost in round 10 of the season, after an enthralling race-long battle with Kiern Jewiss (Double R Racing). The latter finished first on the road, but was demoted to second following a three second time penalty.

A slow getaway for poleman Jewiss saw him jumped off the line by Hauger and Patrik Pasma.

Jewiss responded immediately by getting back past Pasma and then set about hustling Hauger for the lead.

Hauger did brilliantly to keep the faster Jewiss behind. The Norwegian positioning his Red Bull liveried, Ford EcoBoost-powered racer expertly around the Cheshire circuit.

However, on the penultimate lap of the race the pair made contact at Island Bend. Both managed to continue on their way to the chequered flag largely unscathed, Jewiss leading Hauger home.

Following the race, Jewiss was handed a three second time penalty for driving in a manner incompatible with general safety as a result of the incident. The penalty promoted Dennis Hauger to race winner, with Jewiss dropping back to second.

“It feels really good to finally get this win,” said Hauger. “We’ve been waiting for this win for such a long time.

“It’s a little bit of shame that we got it this way, but I cannot deny how happy I am with the result in the end. Now we’ve got to take this momentum into tomorrow.

“In qualifying this season we’ve been in the top three almost every session so the speed has always been there.

“Then it has been about building up the experience in the races. This win just reinforces the fact that we are up there and that we will only get better as the year progresses.

“Finally getting this win is such a good feeling after winning on track at Donington Park and getting a penalty, and then at Thruxton leading until the last corner. The luck has not been with us so far this season, but it is hopefully with us now.”

Despite the penalty Jewiss’ second place finish was still enough to see him take the championship lead, outscoring Ayrton Simmons (JHR Developments) by 10 points and overturning a five point deficit coming into the weekend.

Further consolation for Jewiss came in the form of fastest lap, with a time of 1m 22.939s which was 0.041s quicker than his pole time.

“At the end of the day it’s only a few points we dropped because of the penalty,” said Jewiss. “We’ve still taken the lead in the championship.

“Simmons starts on pole for tomorrow’s first race so I’m expecting to probably lose the championship lead, but then I start the last race from pole when I intend to get it back.

“Overall it was a good race and the car was brilliant. I think me being in this Double R-prepared car is the quickest combination on the grid at the moment.

“At the start I probably had the clutch a bit too high which meant the car was close to rolling forward. I was wary of getting a false start so I dropped the clutch down, as well as the throttle and that left me slow off the line.

“The reverse grid race will be about damage limitation and then the last race of the weekend I need to get a better start and maximise the opportunity to win.”

Fast-starting Pasma came home in third. His second podium of the season. He was made to work had for it though after a dice with Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing) in what was an entertaining battle of the Finns.

“I tried to get into first place at the start, but there wasn’t enough room so I had to back off and settle for second,” explained Pasma. “Jewiss then overtook me and after that I couldn’t quite keep up with the pace of the front two.

“My pace improved as the race went on though and I was able to close the gap to the front which was encouraging.

“I think we will have two better races tomorrow. It was also nice to win the battle in the “Finnish championship” in the race today with Tonteri. It’s always good fun racing with him.”

Jack Doohan (Arden) and Simmons did well to pick up a couple of places from their grid positions to finish fifth and sixth respectively. The sixth place proving particularly crucial for Simmons because it earns him pole for the partially-reversed grid race tomorrow.

Behind Simmons came the Fortec Motorsports’ duo of Hampus Ericsson and Johnathan Hoggard, while Manuel Sulaiman (JHR Developments) and Sebastian Priaulx (Arden) completed the top 10.

It was a luckless opening race of the weekend for home hero Jamie Sharp. The Sharp Motorsport racer ended up in the barrier at Cascades on lap seven.

Round 11 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost will take place at 1300 tomorrow and will be broadcast live on ITV4, with the final race of the weekend kicking off at 1745.

Dominant win for Hoggard in dramatic British F4 race at Donington Park

  • Fast-starting Hoggard faultless out front on the way to victory.
  • Pasma and Jewiss take podium spots after dramatic race.
  • Doohan takes third Rookie win to lead chase for Rookie Cup.

29 APRIL, 2018 – Less than 24 hours after taking his first single-seater victory, Fortec Motorsports’ Johnathan Hoggard was back on the top step of the podium after another flawless drive in Round 6 of the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost at Donington Park.

Starting from second on the grid, Hoggard made a better getaway than poleman Patrik Pasma (Arden) and flew around the outside of the Finn into turn one to lead the way on the opening lap.

There was plenty of drama behind with championship leader Ayrton Simmons (JHR Developments), Hampus Ericsson (Fortec Motorsports), Jack Doohan (Arden) and Jamie Sharp (Sharp Motorsport) tripping over each other at Craner Curves. All four drivers took to the grass, but all were able to re-join the race safely.

More action followed moments later as Sebastian Alvarez (Double R Racing) and Manuel Sulaiman’s (JHR Developments) race came to an end after coming together at the Roberts chicane. Meanwhile Lucca Allen’s race was halted at the same corner.

The Safety Car was deployed to enable the stricken cars to be removed, with the racing getting underway again on lap seven.

Hoggard did well to keep Pasma at bay at the restart and as the race progressed was in a league of his own as he pulled away from the chasing pack, crossing the finish line with a winning margin of 11.575s.

“Getting the lead off the line and building that gap as soon as possible was key,” explained Hoggard.

“I didn’t get the best of restarts after the Safety Car, but still managed to defend well and then set about building a gap.

“It would have been nice to win all three races this weekend, but I’ll take two wins after what happened at Brands Hatch.

“I’m over the moon with the result. I cannot thank the team enough. They’ve done a great job all weekend. Wet or dry we’ve had the pace.

“We’ve definitely shown how good we can be. Hopefully there are many more weekends like this to come.

“I’m looking forward to Thruxton in a few weeks. Preparation will be crucial so we can qualify well and get more good results.”

Kiern Jewiss (Double R Racing) stayed out of trouble on the adrenaline-fuelled opening lap to make his way up to fifth behind Arden’s Dennis Hauger and Sebastian Priaulx.

As Hauger attempted to overtake Pasma on lap seven, Priaulx saw an opportunity to pounce, but in doing so left the door open to Jewiss.

The next target for Jewiss was Hauger who put up a resolute defence, but ultimately succumbed to Jewiss’ attack on lap nine. The Double R racer pulling off a forceful move through the Roberts chicane which saw Hauger skip through the gravel and relegated to 10th.

Jewiss found himself surrounded by Arden runners, with Pasma defending second place robustly and Priaulx and Doohan snapping at his heels.

“That wasn’t the result that we wanted, but I’m pleased to have scored all these points,” said Pasma.

“Although we couldn’t get the win, it’s another podium which means plenty of points at this early stage in the championship.

“We’ve made a lot of progress, especially in terms of qualifying. We’re getting quicker and quicker and that bodes well for the rest of the season.”

Commented Jewiss: “I got another good start and made up a lot of places, although it wasn’t quite as many as the last race.

“I got through the field well, but when I got to Patrik he defended so hard and at times I was on the grass.

“I was in a bit of an Arden sandwich and it was tough, because I was trying to attack and defend at the same time. It was a hard battle, but I held my nerve.

“It’s been another really good weekend with regard to scoring points. The first race didn’t go so well, but the second and third races were brilliant and I put that down to everyone at Double R Racing and Ford for putting together an excellent car and championship.”

Doohan bounced back brilliantly from his opening lap off track excursion to finish fourth after getting the better of Priaulx in the closing stages and almost Jewiss. The Aussie also recorded his third Rookie class win of the season to leave Donington Park leading the chase for the Rookie Cup.

Although Hoggard was clear out front, Pasma’s defence created a grandstand finish as the entire field from second to 10th was covered by just several seconds.

Championship leader Simmons profited most, recovering from the back of the field after his opening lap travails to finish second and salvage valuable points for his championship hopes.

Sharp was another who recovered well to finish in the points, ahead of Josh Skelton (JHR Developments) and Paavo Tonteri (Double R Racing), with Ericsson’s race ending two laps from the finish at McLeans.

Following the race Pasma was awarded a five place grid penalty for unsafe manoeuvres and Simmons was awarded a 10 place grid penalty for contact. Both are to be taken at the next available opportunity.
