Croft Circuit near Darlington in North Yorkshire was the venue for Round 4 of the British F4 Championship, the weather served up both blue skies and torrential rain over the weekend meaning that the XpertLearning sponsored driver, Alex Connor, had a steep learning curve in what is only his third race meeting.
Alex was not phased by the conditions and started strongly, securing his highest Qualifying position of the season so far. The first race took place in warm sunshine and Alex ran with the leading pack all race finishing 7th overall and taking 2nd place in the Rookie Cup race. By contrast, the second race 3 hours later, was abandoned after less than 2 laps as torrential rain made conditions too dangerous to race. Sunday’s Race 3 had everyone cloud watching as rain was forecast, luckily it stayed dry and Alex had another strong race finishing sixth overall and gained another Rookie Cup podium, this time in Third Place.
The championship moves to Oulton Park in Cheshire for Round 5 at the end of June and XpertLearning will once again be supporting this talented young driver as he builds on his experience and looks to battle for that first overall podium finish.
