Double Pole, Double Win at Silverstone!

- June 29th, 2021 -

Reece claimed his first F3 Pole Position, first Double Pole Position, First Win and Second Win, all in one weekend at Silverstone Circuit. He began the 2nd round of the BRDC British F3 season with a stellar qualifying where Fastest Lap set the grid for Race 1 and Second Fastest Lap for Race 2. With flawless starts in both Race 1 and 2, it was just a matter of holding the lead, which he did from start to finish in both races.

 

Pressure from behind came from series championship leader Zak O’Sullivan toward the end of Race 1, but Reece managed to hold him off for his first victory in car racing. Race 2 was a similar story but this time he made it across the finish line with a more comfortable lead of 1.17 seconds. In reverse-grid Race 3, Reece moved from 16th to 7th before a safety car was deployed, then dropped to 10th amidst chaos in the midfield after racing resumed.

 

Now 2nd in the Championship Standings, he is only 6 points behind the leader. Reece’s performance over the weekend helped team Hitech GP overtake Carlin for the lead in the Teams Championship.
