Aspiring FIA Formula One World Championship racer Seb Morris returned to winning ways in style at Assen in the Netherlands on Sunday, 3rd August, with a supreme victory in round 11 of the Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup (NEC).
Having only just missed out on the podium during the weekend’s opening encounter at the Dutch track on Saturday, 2nd August, with a fighting fourth place, the Caterham Racing Academy youngster eased to a huge 7.5 second winning margin in race two and also posted the fastest lap of the race.
Marking the second win of Seb’s maiden season in European-level competition, the Assen results mean the 18-year-old from Marford has climbed back into the championship top five from eighth in the standings prior to the fifth race meeting of the season.
Seb reported “I had a good race with a perfect car. I could pull away and just drove good laptimes and got into a rythm. I am very happy with today and the weekend overall. I’ve really enjoyed Assen, it’s a fantastic track with so much heritage and the Dutch fans really know their racing. There has been a great atmosphere from the huge crowd and that really helps to spur you on, winning race two was the icing on the cake. We now move on to the next race weekend, where we have three races and with the car we now seem to have I’ve got a real chance to try and close in on the four drivers ahead of me in the Championship standings.”
Next on the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC calendar is a visit to Most in the Czech Republic over the weekend 30th/31st August – the penultimate race meeting of the 2014 season – which should again see massive crowds out in force.
