Maiden wins for Sargeant and Mansell in intense weekend of competition

The weekend proved to be another successful one in the books for Infinity Sports Management, with two drivers taking their maiden wins in FIA F3 and British Formula 4.

FIA F3
With no break between events, the FIA F3 drivers returned to Silverstone for the 70th Grand Prix weekend held at the Northamptonshire circuit.

Logan Sargeant got the weekend off to a flying start by claiming pole position at the track, over two-tenths clear of the next best competitor.

Fresh from his win the previous week, David Beckmann was in fine form too, earning a P8 in the Friday session.

When the time for lights out came on Saturday morning, Logan held his nerve to take a mature and calculated victory, earning his first win in the Formula 1 support series.

David also scored an impressive haul of points, charging from P8 to P5. His fantastic performance was repeated in the second race, bettering his previous result to cross the line in fourth position and narrowly missing out on a spot on the podium.

Leaving Silverstone and heading to Barcelona, Logan leads the championship standings with David in third.

British Formula 4
Christian Mansell had a stellar weekend in the support series for the British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch, earning three rookie cup wins and an overall victory to mark a memorable outing in his junior career.

Both Chrisitan and Matias Zagazeta qualified inside the top-10 for Race 1 and both converted this to points, with Christian P6 and Matias P10.

Chrisitan was on pole position for Race 2 and he stayed cool to cross the line ahead of the field to mark his first British F4 win. Now, the Aussie driver joins the likes of Lando Norris in writing his name in the record books. Matias again secured another lot of points to add to his ever growing tally.

The boys have a week off now before heading to Oulton Park.

GT Open
In GT Open, fresh from becoming a father for the first time (congratulations, Charlie!) - Charlie Eastwood celebrated with a well-earnt P3 podium in the second race of the weekend at the Hungaroring, Budapest.

The series visits some formidable tracks around Europe, including the Red Bull Ring and Monza. After securing additional points in the first race of the weekend, Charlie and his TF Sport team-mate Salih Yoluc are fifth in the standings.
