Carlin’s Enaam Ahmed took a win in the third race of the Duo BRDC British Formula 3 Autumn Trophy at Snetterton. He was pursued home by Douglas Motorsport’s Joey Mawson.
With the cancelation of qualifying due to substantial fog, the order for the penultimate race of the Autumn Trophy was set by championship position. That meant that Ahmed would lead the field off from pole position with Dan Ticktum next to him, and title rival Mawson in third.
As the lights went out, it was Mawson’s Douglas Motorsport partner Jamie Caroline who made the best getaway rocketing up to P4. James Pull and Ben Hingeley ended up badly through Riches, with the duo colliding and headed into retirement.
Ahmed held his lead through the initial few corners, however, was soon under assault from Ticktum who endeavored to discover a route past into Agostini.
The activity continued after a few laps and Ahmed held his lead through Riches, despite the fact that Mawson remained nearby on his gearbox, managing no space for the Carlin man to slip up.
Hillspeed with Cliff Dempsey Racing’s Abdullah Al Rawahi had an off track adventure at Oggies, demoting him from sixth to eighth. In the mean time at the front, Mawson was influencing Ahmed yet could not mount a maintained assault.
The 16-year-old saw out the last few laps without drama to claim his second win of the weekend and extend his title lead to 17 points over Joey Mawson.
