Oz: Evans takes clean sweep at Phillip Island

Ben Crighton was another to work his way through the field to mount a strong challenge in the main race, scoring his second podium finish in as many rounds and lifting himself to fourth in the standings driving his all-black TanderSport machine.

Chris Gilmour finished fourth, but was another to mix it up with the leading group in the early laps of each race today. A locked brake early in the feature cost him time and position, shuffling him back to sixth before he caught and passed Kristian Lindbom at turn one to gain ground.

Lindbom was at his racy best all weekend and, whilst he lacked the raw speed to challenge for wins this weekend, managed to get himself in the thick of the action once again en route to fifth.

Zhang Shan Qi was the big improver of the weekend and scored a solid sixth. Tom Drewer was seventh, surviving a spin and a flat-spotted front tyre, to finish his first F3 weekend strongly. Roman Krumins was the last to the flag in the main race as Graeme Holmes and Ben Barker failed to finish.

Barker and Holmes made contact at turn four whilst the British driver charged through the field after serving his penalty. Whilst Barker moved down the inside, he and Holmes collected, damaging the suspension of both cars and leaving the front-row starter a disappointed onlooker, stranded in the hairpin grass and with no points.

The next stop for the championship is South Australia's Mallala Raceway, on May 28-30.
