QUINN ON THE BRINK OF F4 ROOKIE TITLE

Alex Quinn completed a haul of top six finishes at Rockingham with a second fifth place finish in the final F4 British Championship race of the weekend in Northamptonshire.

 

The RSF-backed racer, who had already scored second and fifth place respective finishes in the previous two contents, lined up fourth on the grid for the final encounter.

Quinn made a solid getaway and was part of three cars which scrapped side-by-side to around the banked turn one towards the turn two Deane hairpin.

 

The Fortec Motorsports driver lost out though, opting to avoid potential damage into the hairpin, and was out-dragged out of it losing two places in the process.

 

Quinn however did manage to pass the Arden machine of Rafael Martins after Martins was unable to defend his fifth place on the exit of Yentwood, with the pair touching on the exit, damaging Martins’ front wing.

 

From there, Quinn was unable to close in on the Carlin car of Petru Florescu, the gap over a second in the final couple of laps, and remained static to the flag.

 

Quinn will head to the next round at Silverstone on the brink of securing the F4 British Championship’s Rookie class title.
