11/07/2012 - British F3 star Alex Lynn has hailed the emergence
of the F3 Cup championship after recording an impressive double
victory at Belgium's Spa Francorchamps circuit last month.
The reigning Formula Renault UK champion, who competes for
Fortec in the 2012 British Formula 3 Championship, joined Lanan
Racing for a one off outing in the F3 Cup at Spa on June 16/17, in
a bid to gather important track time ahead of British F3's visit
Lynn proved to be the star at Spa as he claimed two pole positions
followed by two highly impressive lights-to-flag victories. The
18-year-old from Essex revealed he thoroughly enjoyed his weekend
in the championship and believes it is a perfect way for drivers to
sample F3 machinery. With running in both wet and dry conditions,
he hopes the weekend will put him in a strong position come the
British F3 round at Spa on 26-28 July.
Lynn said: "It was a really enjoyable weekend. It was stress
free for me which allowed me to really enjoy my racing. The
championship is great and the guys competing were fantastic to race
with and really enjoy their racing, which was quite refreshing.
"I'd absolutely recommend it. If you are a driver who wants to
drive a proper race car then the F3 Cup is the perfect championship
to do so. It is great value for money which visits great circuits
with cars that are not much slower than the current F3 cars.
"My objective was to get some track time as I have never driven
Spa and the British F3 Championship heads there soon. I managed to
get plenty of track time in both the wet and the dry so it was a
good weekend for me with two wins as well. I hope it puts me in
good stead when the British F3 visits Spa."
The F3 Cup heads to the famous Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit
for rounds 11 and 12 of the championship on 18/19 August. Omicron
Motorsport's Tristan Cliffe leads the championship standings by
just 5.5 points from Chris Dittmann.
