Dan Ticktum took the glory in race two of the Duo BRDC British Formula 3 Autumn Trophy at Snetterton, driving from lights-to-flag to secure a dominant win. Enaam Ahmed jumped Joey Mawson off the line and the race one victor took second place, with Mawson taking the last podium position in third.
In the wake of setting the fastest lap in race one, it was Double R Racing’s Ticktum who began from pole position and he made the best of his getaway from the front to lead into Riches.
Fortec Motorsports’ Ben Hingeley, currently in fifth was declared to have jumped the start and was issued a 10-second time penalty. James Pull, in the meantime, was a man on a mission and he ended up sixth, having begun ninth, once Hingeley’s punishment was added.
The race settled down and at the midpoint Ticktum had opened up a lead of more than four seconds as he kept on pushing in advance. He was encouraged by Ahmed looking behind him as Mawson filled the race one winner’s mirrors.
A decent fight created amongst Pull and Callan O’Keefe for sixth, with the Fortec duo swarming everywhere throughout the back of the Brit’s Carlin car. Inevitably the weight told, and O’Keeffe pulled close by Pull down the Bentley Straight and pulled off an overtake around the outside of his opponent into Brundle to take the position.
In the end, Ticktum was in control and he saw out the last few laps without drama to take the chequered flag in front of Ahmed and Mawson, with Kiwi youngster Marcus Armstrong taking a solid fourth in the wake of shutting everything down in the fight for the last two podium places.
