Ace Alice remains the leader
12:40pm Sunday 25th August 2013 in Sport
CHIPPING Norton’s Alice Powell increased her British F3 Cup lead to 26 points after a consistent Silverstone meeting.
After qualifying third, she forced an early error from Louis Hamilton-Smith to move into second.
Powell kept the pressure on until leader Tristan Cliffe hit a plastic track marker which landed in her path and damaged the car’s front although she held on to second spot.
The 20-year-old former Cotswold School pupil lined up second for race two and quickly passed Cliffe.
He later regained the lead but Powell held off rival Alex Craven to secure another second. Powell said: “It was a consistent weekend.
“The championship is hotting up and we have some work to do to get the car back to where it was at the start of the season.”
The next rounds are on September 7 and 8 at Snetterton, Norfolk.
