Race Result - Rounds 3 & 4
Brands Hatch, Sunday 4 May 2003
Weather: Sunny, dry
Car: Proton Wira/Impian <pre> Driver Qualifying Race 3 Race 4 Leslie - car 15 50.590, 13th 9th place 6th place Bennett - car 20 50.256, 11th 10th place DNF

</pre> In front of a huge crowd at Brands Hatch, David Leslie once again scored points with a level-headed drive which got the best out of his PETRONAS-backed Proton Impian/Wira, helped by slick work from his pit crew. Phil Bennett also secured a good finish in Round 3 but was forced out on the first lap of Round 4.

David Leslie: "Both races were very close. My pitcrew gave me a great stop in Round 4 while others were losing their heads and I picked up track position. The car was good so I'm pleased with my results today -- we finished ahead of two works Hondas."

Phil Bennett: "We had a good steady run in Race 3 but Race 4 was a disaster. I got pushed off on the second corner and ended in the barriers. My luck has to turn soon!"

Mike Carroll (Race Director): "This was our first dry race this year so consistency was vital on this short track. David did well to avoid trouble and keep a cool head. 6th place was a good result for us, for which the pitcrew must also take credit."

David Wong (Team Principal): "I'm pleased with sixth place in such a tight race - it's more points in the bag for us. We're looking forward to another performance improvement for the next race at Thruxton."
