THREE TOP TEN FINISHES FOR HITECH JUNIOR

Hitech Junior's Tamas Pal Kiss headed the results of the Silverstone team's quartet in the latest rounds of the Michelin Formula Renault UK Championship on Sunday. The 18 year-old started race two from the fifth row of the grid and brought his car home in seventh place overall, second of the Graduate Cup runners.

A good run in the day's opening counter, sadly didn't produce another top ten finish. However a good race pace, which netted him the seventh fastest lap, allowed him to move up from his grid position and show the potential that resulted in him equalling his best finish of the year in race two.

Nick Yelloly had led the way in first qualifying, the 19 year-old buoyed by his win in the Graduate Cup last time out, posting the tenth quickest time for the race. After a good start however, the Birmingham youngster was hit by a rival, which cost him his front wing and a potential top six place. In race two, held on a drying track, a great getaway and storming drive through the field allowed him to move up eight places and netted a superb ninth place and third in the Graduate Cup.

Hopton-on-Sea's Jordan Oakes converted his sixth row grid position into a strong tenth place in the opening round, the 20 year-old right on the tail of a three-car battle for eighth at the flag. In the second race however, after another strong showing, he was spun out of a top ten finish at the mid-way point which pushed him down the field.

Eighteen year-old Swiss-Filipino Marlon Stockinger once again improved from his grid position in both races around the Silverstone National configuration. The former Formula BMW Asia driver continued to rack up the points in this, his first season in Formula Renault, to finish 16th and 15th in the two races respectively.

The British Touring Car Championship support series now has three weeks breaks before the next rounds of the championship at the Rockingham Motor Speedway, near Corby, over the weekend of 19/20 September.
