Branden T scores first GB4 victory with Fox Motorsport

#24 Branden Templeton – Fox Motorsport

Branden T (Lower Sixth) scored his maiden race victory last weekend as Fox Motorsport mounted the top step of the podium in the GB4 Championship at Donington Park. Branden was contesting only his third car-racing weekend in the intensely competitive single-seater series and showed his class to dominate the closing race of the weekend at the East Midlands track.

Starting fifth on the fully-reversed Race Three grid, Branden climbed to second by the first corner and took less than two laps to surge into the lead. From there he set the fastest lap and built a sizeable gap; his 7.700s advantage at the flag proving to be the largest winning margin in the series for nearly two years.

Victory undid the disappointment of the two earlier races. He had climbed from 11th to seventh in the opener until contact from a rival knocked his left-front wheel askew and restricted him to 10th.

In Race Two he was hit just seconds after the start as the same rival swerved into his path, breaking his front wing and restricting his pace for the rest of the race. He finished 13th.

Fox Motorsport hold third place in the Teams’ Championship while Branden’s victory has kept him fifth in the Drivers’ points.

Branden said: “This feels incredible. To get my first win in cars after what had been a tough weekend with incidents in Races One and Two is just amazing. Key was keeping my head high when things weren’t quite going to plan, because when the opportunity came in Race Three I was up to second by the first corner and then leading by the second lap, after which it was a case of just managing the gap. A huge thank you to my management at Kokoro, to Fox Motorsport, and to my family and partners. There’s plenty more to come too.”

Well done Branden and good luck for the next race!
