Voisin bounces back to take win #3 at Brands Hatch

by Bethonie Waring

Callum Voisin fights back to take his third win of the season in the opening race of the weekend at Brands Hatch.

Liam McNeilly pipped the pole sitter at the first corner, but couldn’t shake Voisin and spent the rest of the race battling to keep Voisin behind him.

Through the first half of the race, the top six were bunched together, but eventually McNeilly, Voisin and Seb Hopkins managed to break away from those behind.

Voisin made a number of attempts to retake the race lead from McNeilly, but it wasn’t until the second half of the race that he managed to make a move stick at Paddock Hill Bend. McNeilly tried to fight back, but himself came under pressure from Hopkins behind.

With McNeilly defending against Hopkins, Voisin managed to break away a little in the final laps to finish 1.349s ahead of the battle for P2.

McNeilly and Hopkins were side by side on the final lap as they took the chequered flag, but McNeilly managed to keep his nose ahead to finish P2.

Tom Edgar, Aston Millar and Will Jenkins spent the race swapping positions in fourth through to sixth. Millar briefly managed to get into the top three early on only for a wide moment to drop him back to sixth. The order reshuffled a number of times, with Edgar and Millar both taking turns at the front of the pack. It was Edgar at the front when the chequered flag fell and he finished 0.156s ahead of Millar.

Rowledge took seventh ahead of scholarship winner Robert de Haan.

De Haan’s race was spent battling against Freddie Tomlinson and fellow scholarship winner Maurice Henry in the fight for P8. The trio swapped places a number of times before a wide moment for Henry dropped him down the order.

Tomlinson dropped back to P11 in the final laps, with Ian Aguilera and Max Dodds completed the top 10.
