Thomas Maxwell and Eugene Denyssen impressed on their maiden visit to Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium in the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship.

The SWR pair helped the Chipping Norton team deliver its most competitive team performance so far.

Pace wise, this has definitely been our best weekend of the season

Rapid throughout the event, both drivers shone at the world-famous Formula One venue. Maxwell matched his season best British F3 result of seventh in race three on Saturday and Denyssen bettering his previous best with eighth position in the same contest.

Team boss Sean Walkinshaw said: “Pace wise, this has definitely been our best weekend of the season.

“What happened in the first race compromised the whole weekend in terms of the results, we didn’t get the finishes our pace deserved, but Tom and Eugene did a great job on track.

“We ended the weekend with good results in the last race, though, so we’re happy with that.

“Overall, we’re very happy with the performances and I’d like to think we can continue this form over the last two events.

“We’re quietly confident for Snetterton, both guys have been there before so that experience will help them.”
