Full Contact client Seb Morris concluded an eventful weekend at the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC round at Most (Czech Republic) picking up his second podium, making good ground on his championship rivals in the process.
A weekend decimated by heavy rain would ultimately cause the cancellation of one of the weekend’s three races (with that race now being added to the next and final round of the Championship at the Nurburgring). Seb, so often a master driving in wet conditions, was able to secure pole position for race 1 and fourth position on the grid for race 2. Frustratingly, and controversially, Seb’s pole was reduced to a 6th place start after a five place grid penalty was imposed for exceeding limits under a red flag – visibility in the heavy rain being somewhat of an issue!
Undeterred by that disappointing penalty, Seb was able to convert his sixth place to a third place finish, racing strongly throughout in the testing conditions.
Race 2 took place in even heavier rain, and whilst Seb was quickly able to move up to third from his fourth place grid position, almost the entirety of the race was then driven behind a safety car – of course rendering any further improvements on his position unachievable. So two podium finishes for Seb led to 40 points being gathered in the Championship, and he now stands fourth in the title race with 185 points. Seb is just 15 points behind third place (Schothorst) and 39 points off the championship leader, Ben Barnicoat. With the final race weekend now boasting three races (and Seb already being awarded a P2 grid position for the first race that weekend) all is left to fight for as the 2.0 NEC battles concludes in Germany at the end of September.
