Sunday 30 August 2020

Kush Maini, Ulysse De Pauw and Louis Foster were the top three finishers in the final race of the weekend at Brands Hatch. Here's what each had to say at the end of the race.

Winner - Kush Maini, Hitech GP:
"We've been waiting for that first win after seven podiums, but I didn't want to rush it. I just wanted to gather points and I knew the win would come sooner or later, and finally it came so I'm really happy. 

"For me I don't look at the championship until the last two rounds to be honest, because in this championship anything can happen like you saw. Kaylen [Frederick] was 30 points ahead and he's leaving 40 points behind so there's no point looking at the championship yet, but it's definitely a positive first three rounds.

"They're so brilliant, Hitech gave me a faultless car. They've taken nine or ten podiums in 11 races and one win now, and the championship lead, in their debut year. It's amazing and I really want to thank them."

Second - Ulysse De Pauw, Douglas Motorsport:
"A good race, another podium, my second one of the weekend, it feels good. Some good points and it feels especially even better after the shunt I had in race three, a mechanical failure sent me into the wall, so we lost points there and the car was quite damaged. The team did a really good job to repair it and it was running perfect with no problems so thanks to them and I hope I will bounce back at Donington and finally get a win in race one or three.

"Since the beginning of the season we have always been fast and I've done four fastest laps in races but things never come together, something always happens. So the pace is there and we just need a bit more luck."

Third - Louis Foster, Double R Racing:
"We struggled in qualifying with the pace and didn't get quite so lucky with traffic in the drying track. We knew we had the pace to be on top so it was all about making places up in the races. I think in every race apart from the reversed grid race where we fell backwards to get a lap time for race four, we have made up at least one place or two places, so I'm really happy to be able to progress through the races like we should have done with our pace.

"We've been quick there [Donington Park] in testing so it's a track I enjoy, it's quite flowing and fast and on the rails so I'm looking forward to it and it should be good fun."
