Lundqvist crowned Formula Regional Americas champion

Linus Lundqvist has been crowned the 2020 Formula Regional Americas champion at the weekend (3-4 October) at Homestead-Miami after a truly season-long dominant display.

Linus has a staggering 12 wins to his name for the season, taking glory in all but two races to-date where he still finished on the podium or in the top-six.

Despite heavy rain cancelling qualifying on Saturday, Linus added another two confident victories to his tally for the year. The Global Racing Group driver now has 13 podiums and 11 fastest laps to his name.

The Swedish driver is on 362 points, 91 points clear of his next riva and takes the championship title with three races still to go.

“Wow, I can’t believe what a season it’s been. It has been remarkable and the car has felt great all season. It’s been so good to work with my team who have given me all the confidence and support I’ve needed. This is an achievement that I’m really proud of and it’s certainly been a weekend that I will remember for the rest of my career.”

Harry Soden, Infinity Sports Management

“We are incredibly proud of the outstanding results that Linus has produced all season. They’re testament to his hard work and dedication and we can’t wait to see to what the future holds.”

Collard shines in British GT

Jordan Collard proved to have an excellent weekend in the penultimate round of British GT Championship by scoring a race win and a podium in tricky wet conditions.

Teaming up with HHC Motorsport once again, Jordan was able to come away from Snetterton with a significant haul of points after being blisteringly quick at the Norfolk circuit.

In his qualifying session on Saturday, he placed his McLaren 570S in second position for the weekend’s second 60-minute race. This put him in a good position for Sunday afternoon where he was able to capitalise on this during his stint of the race. Jordan went on a spectacular charge to pass his competitors en route to the race victory and a second GT4 podium of the weekend.

Heading into the final round at Silverstone (7-8 November), Jordan and his team-mate are still in contention for the GT4 championship title.

“It has been a weekend of great progression. We had a really good podium for the first sprint race and then my pace in the second race was good which helped us ultimately to get the win. The team and everyone have done well in the horrible wet conditions we had, so it’s certainly rewarding to have those two podiums. It also means that we’re still into the title fight so we need to knuckle down and have another good weekend at Silverstone!”

Harry Soden

“Jordan showed excellent pace throughout the weekend at Snetterton, so we’re delighted that he was able to get some brilliant results. The track was treacherous all weekend so it really does show off his driving skill and ability. We’re looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season unfolds.”
