Aston Millar claimed his first on track victory as the final race of the weekend at Knockhill was red flagged.

The R Racing driver had a race lead of more than four seconds when an accident in the mid-field paused racing with just a handful of laps remaining.

The race was called early and Millar was handed his second win of the season.

Millar had previously been awarded the win from race three after Robert de Haan was handed a 10 second penalty.

The result put him on pole for race four. He was able to get away from the chasing pack as team-mate Callum Voisin put second place Seb Hopkins under pressure for P2. By the time Voisin managed to get through, Millar already had a comfortable gap. Voisin set the fastest lap of the race trying to close in on his team-mate, but a mistake dropped him back into P3.

Hopkins retook second position and, although he was no longer under pressure from Voisin, he could not close in on Millar.

Voisin came under pressure from the hard fighting Robert de Haan. De Haan managed to get alongside Voisin and, with Liam McNeilly on de Haan’s tail, Voisin lost two positions.

He would then come under pressure from Josh Rowledge but an accident further back ended the race before Rowledge could make the move sick.

Maurice Henry had been forced onto the grass while battling for position and rejoined just ahead of his rival. The high speed incident appeared to catch some behind off guard. Will Jenkins was sent into a sin while Max Dodds and Aquil Alibhari were also caught in the mix.

Henry would come home P11, just ahead of Edward Pearson.

The stoppage allowed Harri Reynolds to retain P7 from a Freddie Tomlinson, who was on his tail, and Joe Wheeler, who wasn’t far behind.

James Higgins completed the top 10.
