TAKING a break from his F4 British Championship campaign, Zane Maloney thrilled the fans at Bushy Park with a sensational debut in the Radical Caribbean SR3 Cup (RCC).
Racing a car for the first time at the St Philip circuit during the Williams Industries International Race Meet, the 15-year-old claimed pole position in Saturday’s Qualifying, then won all three races on Sunday, clocking the fastest lap in the first two.
Because he bagged his maximum points score driving his father – and championship leader – Sean Maloney’s car, a major shuffle in the standings has resulted.
As Sean dropped from first to fifth, reigning champion Stuart Maloney assumed the lead by a mere one point, 132 to 131, over Jamaican William Myers. Early points leader Mark Maloney has slipped to third with 121 points, while Trinidadian Kristian Boodoosingh moved from sixth to fourth with two second places.
The F4 British Championship leader and Myers were separated by just nine-hundredths in the practice session, with Boodoosingh another quarter-second behind. While Myers and Stuart Maloney topped the Qualifying times mid-session, Zane was fastest when it counted.
His pole position time of 58.653 seconds was 0.141 seconds up on Myers, second in Qualifying for the third time, despite improving on his personal best qualifying time by four-tenths. (PR/EZS)
