India's rising star Karun Chandhok dominated the scholarship class in the British Formula 3 championship, winning the first of two races at the Croft circuit in Yorkshire on Sunday. The 19-year-old, JK Tyre sponsored driver, now leads the Championship table ahead of Steven Kane and Ernesto Viso. Chandhok clinched the pole in both the races before proceeding to register his second win of the season winning the fifth round. In the second race (sixth round), Chandhok was leading, going into the last lap and in sight of the chequered flag, when teammate Kane banged into the right side, taking both the cars of the race. Earlier, the T-Sport driver did remarkably well to clinch his first F3 pole in wet conditions in which he had struggled before. Then Chandhok made it a double, grabbing the top spot in the second qualifying session in the evening. In Round 5, Chandhok got held up by some of the championship class cars going into the hairpin and Ivor McCullough got ahead, only to make a mistake himself on the next lap which let Chandhok through to the number one position again. From there on, the T-Sport driver drove maturely against stiff competition to come out on top. The next two races will be held at the tight and twisty Knockhill circuit in Scotland in one week's time. (PTI)
