George is in second spot

TWO podium finishes sees George Russell from Tydd St Giles lying second after two rounds of the British Super 1 Championship with his English team Millenium Motorsport.

After he qualified pole this weekend at Shenington and won both heats, he clinched a podium spot on the last lap of the final.

The previous weekend was the CIK-FIA European qualifier held at PF International, Brandon (near Grantham), which saw 80 drivers entered from Northern Europe.

George ran with his Italian team on the Intrepid Driver Programme and qualified pole in timed qualifying against a very strong field, and now holds a ticket to the European Championship held in Zeura, Spain later this year. Strong heat finishes were very important as making the final was imperative to qualify.
