What no World Cup?

Young English driver gives England something to cheer on World Cup final day.

Hinckleys Robbie Kerr emphasised his challenge for the British F3 crown at Brands Hatch today by qualifying in pole position for both of Sundays British Formula 3 Championship rounds. Kerr scorched round the twisty 1.2 mile Kent circuit at over 104 mph average speed to take his first pole position of the season, and then followed it up by doing exactly the same a few hours later.

With championship leader James Courtney qualifying down the order for both races, Robbie has an excellent chance to close up the points gap, and set up a thrilling second half of the championship, which is turning into a classic battle for supremacy. Even the TV commentators are comparing it to the exciting 1984 battle between Ayrton Senna and Martin Brundle.

Robbie says " I always manage to put a good weekend together at Brands, qualifying has gone the right way, all I need to do now is turn poles into wins, I think any motorsport fans should be here tomorrow, it looks like being a good one!"
