James Fletcher clinched his second race win of the BRDC F4 season with a dominant performance that saw him finish ten seconds ahead of nearest rival Seb Morris.

Morris, who celebrated his maiden BRDC F4 victory earlier today but had it revoked post-race due to a technical infringements, started from third and passed Struan Moore on the second lap. However, he couldn’t quite match the pace set by Fletcher and was forced to settle for second.

The podium was completed by Moore, closely followed by Jake Dalton. Scottish driver Charlie Robertson and Englishman Matthew Graham both secured strong point-scoring finishes in fifth and sixth respectively, while Matt Bell‘s seventh place marked his best result since his victory back in July at Oulton Park.

Although Jake Hughes had spent most of the race in fourth, he eventually slipped back to eighth during the race and found himself successfully defending from Gustavo Lima in the closing stages of the race. The top ten was rounded out by Diego Menchaca.

In the standings, Hughes leads Barlow by 45 points with one round to go.
