British F3 Spa 2: Kennard’s first win

Jonathan Kennard, British F3, Spa-Francorchamps, 2007 | British F3Jonathan Kennard broke his victory race in very wet conditions at Spa-Francorchamps after only four laps’ racing.

He started the race from pole and was aided by the race starting behind the safety car as the track was extremely wet and rain was continuing to fall. The race got underway after three laps and the top three held their positions at first with Kennard ahead of Maro Engel and Sam Bird.

When Ricardo Teixeira crashed heavily at Eau Rouge on lap seven, the safety car came out and the final lap was completed under caution, sealing Kennard’s victory.
