Volkswagen drivers dominate at Spa-Francorchamps

There were two winners with Volkswagen Power at the British Formula 3 round in the Ardennes: Daniel Ricciardo (AUS) and Adriano Buzaid (BR) were the two winners of rounds 13 and 14 at Spa-Francorchamps. Ricciardo converted pole position in the first race to claim his fourth victory of the season. Buzaid attacked the second race also from pole position and was triumphant in a spectacular wet race. It was the first win in the championship for the Brazilian from the Volkswagen team T-Sport. Thanks to his second place Volkswagen driver Ricciardo increased his overall championship lead to 37 points after 14 of 20 races.

Rene Rast is currently the man to beat in the Porsche Supercup. The Volkswagen Junior, who started from pole position, celebrated his third win in the series in Hungary. After winning the start the 22-year old let nothing get in his way and duly won by seven seconds from his fellow competitors. Following his wins at the Nurburgring and Silverstone he continues to hold second place behind defending champion Jeroen Bleekemolen.
