Championship leader Linus Lundqvist and Lanan Racing’s Kush Maini enjoyed an increased bank balance after the latest BRDC British F3 Championship rounds at Silverstone.
Lundqvist claimed his first qualifying pole position of the season for race one, which he converted into his fourth win of the season while Maini’s fastest race lap from the first two contests meant he started from the front of the grid for race three, where he secured another podium with third place.
Both drivers earned £150 each for the poles, as part of the Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup initiative, which sees pole sitters for races one and three of each British F3 weekend earning £150 and a trophy, with the driver securing the most pole positions by the end of the year also claiming £1,000 and a trophy.
At the halfway stage of the season, the battle for the Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup is really heating up. Nicolai Kjaergaard, Linus Lundqvist and Kush Maini each have two poles apiece, earning each a total of £300. Kjaergaard and Lundqvist have one qualifying and one race three pole each, while both of Maini’s poles have come from fastest race laps.
Other drivers to benefit from a boosted bank balance so far this year include Clement Novalak and Tom Gamble, who have earned £150 each courtesy of qualifying poles at Oulton Park and Snetterton respectively.
