Martin enjoys FPA guest drive as Alex remains in championship hunt

Ex-Formula 1 driver Martin Brundle and his son, Alex, each secured a hat-trick of top ten finishes at last weekend's Formula Palmer Audi Championship meeting -- with Brundle Junior now just three points shy of third place in the drivers' title race.

ITV F1 commentator Martin joined Alex at Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium for his first major competitive outing since leading at Le Mans for Bentley in 2001.

Alex -- who has already achieved his maiden pole position and three podium finishes so far this season -- scored some solid points towards his championship campaign by taking sixth, ninth and tenth place finishes. He has now collected 109 points in total this season and lies just three points adrift of joint third place drivers Jack Clarke and Ivan Lukashevich.

Martin also scored three top eight finishes commenting: "I enjoyed racing this weekend as much as ever. When an FPA car became available, this unique window of opportunity to race against my son at the magnificent Spa track was an easy decision. I was very pleased and even relieved to find that I still have speed and commitment. "

Martin Brundle concluded: "I've been really impressed by the young drivers in this year's Formula Palmer Audi Championship. This weekend was good hard racing, these aspiring young hot shoes take no prisoners, they are fully on it. In the third race I had a cracking tussle with Russian Ivan Lukashevich -- even though I'm three times his age! A great experience all round for me"
