Carlin’s Zane Maloney put in a drive worthy of a champion to provisionally claim the 2019 F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost title at the final hurdle at Brands Hatch. 

The Bajan rising star made a blistering start from the second row, passing both Richardson Racing’s Luke Browning and Arden Motorsport’s Alex Connor to run second behind Double R racer Louis Foster on the run through Paddock Hill Bend.

 His chief title rival Sebastian Alvarez (Double R) preserved fifth on the road in the opening exchanges, but a run off-circuit at Stirlings lost the Mexican momentum; JHR’s Josh Skelton got past at Paddock, before Arden’s Bart Horsten demoted Alvarez to seventh at Druids.

 aloney, meanwhile, set about applying the pressure to Foster at the front, with the race-deciding moment at Westfield; Foster ran a little wide on the exit of Hawthorn and Maloney made no mistake, cutting to the inside to seize a lead he would not relinquish.

Disaster for Alvarez then strengthened Maloney’s position, the Mexican forced to pull off on the exit of Druids with a mechanical problem; all Maloney needed to do now to secure the crown was finish inside the top seven.

In typical fashion, Maloney powered ahead in the closing stages to register a record-equalling tenth victory of the campaign by 1.2 seconds from Browning.

 He maintains Carlin’s one-hundred percent record of winning the Ford EcoBoost-powered category, the eventual margin of victory in the standings 20 points.
