Formula Ford – Foster Charges To Race One Win

September 10, 2011

Formula Ford

Nick Foster fought off multiple challengers to take the opening race win for round five of the Australian Formula Ford Championship at Sandown Raceway today, claiming victory from pole position.

The Steeline Mygale driver had to work hard to fend off the advances of Sonic Motor Racing Services team mates Cameron Waters and Gary Jacobson, as well as Synergy Motorsport’s Liam Sager.

The victory follows on from race wins at the previous two championship rounds at Eastern Creek and Queensland Raceway.

“After the restart (for a mid-race safety car), I put my head down and was able to make a gap,” Foster said.

“I feel that I do my best driving out in front, so I felt pretty comfortable towards the finish.

“Hopefully the weather holds off again for tomorrow’s races.”

After leading early, Gary Jacobson came through for his best result of the season in second, fighting back stoutly after being held wide on the restart.

“I made a pretty good start from the greasy part of the track, and I managed to get in a good groove with Nick (Foster) in the early running, and made it to the lead,” Jacobson said.

“On the restart I hung myself out wide, and had to fight very hard to get second at the finish.”

In third place at the chequered flag was Jack LeBrocq, who had his work cut out for himself after qualifying on the last row of the grid following on from wet qualifying session, where timing proved critical.

“It was fairly full-on, racing from the back of the pack was a hard thing to do,” LeBrocq said.

“I’m very happy to finish in third and salvage some championship points.”

Championship leader Cameron Waters rebounded strongly after an incident sent him to the rear of the field early in the race, before rebounding to finish a flying fourth.

Jeese Fenech was fifth, from Daniel Erickson, Elliot Barbour, Tom Williamson and Daniel Ramerman, with Simon Hodge rounding out the top-ten.

Round five of the series continues with races two and three tomorrow at Sandown Raceway, with all of the action broadcast live on www.itvlive.com.au.
