JAMIE MAKES IT A HAT-TRICK AT NORISRING
Ralf Schumacher had taken Pole for the race but,BRDC Full Member Jamie inherited the lead after a jump start and subsequent penalty befell his German compatriot.
It was a lead that Jamie never yielded, in a dominant and calm display, after fending off the challenge of Mattias Ekstrom for the latter stages of the race after the Swede found himself in 2nd post pitstops. Bruno Spengler was also catching in the closing laps but was too far back to mount a serious challenge. Jamie held on for the win by half a second much to the delight of the Brit.
Jamie has won at the famous Norisring three times in succession now and made his mark on the championship after Sunday’s race gave him vital points for his title challenge.
Oliver Jarvis secured 4th and his first points of the season after a brilliant race whilst fellow BRDC Full Member Gary Paffett claimed 6th.
As a result of the weekend’s action, Jamie is now just ten points behind Drivers Championship leader, Bruno Spengler with six races to go in the series. Gary is 4th in the standings with 19 points and Paul Di Resta is a place behind in 5th, on 17 points.
