FORMULA Renault UK Championship leader Alex Lynn scored a strong sixth place on his debut in the Eurocup at the Hungaroring circuit near Budapest last Saturday.
The Dunmow teenager travelled was part of an enormous field of 48 cars which included some of the hottest young talent in Europe.
Lynn, 17 maintained his position throughout, but felt he had the speed to take a podium. “It was pretty difficult because we didn’t get much testing so I was happy to take sixth. It’s very difficult to overtake around there. All of us in the top six were pretty evenly-matched, but I think my pace was good enough for the top three.”
The next race weekend is the fourth round of the Formula Renault UK Championship, at Snetterton in Norfolk, on August 6/7.
