Ultimate Motorsport are celebrating after breaking their British Formula 3 victory duck in style by claiming two victories at Snetterton.

Led by Michael Devaney, the result marks Ultimate Motorsport's quick transition from fledgling to race winner in little over a year, even if the most significant feat here is the first-ever victory for the Mygale chassis.

The first time in three seasons that a non-Dallara chassis has topped the British Formula 3 classification sheets, Devaney swept to victory around the Norfolk circuit in the first race from pole position before following it up with another win from fourth on the grid.

Coming soon after lead driver Esteban Guerrieri made his move to the World Series, Devaney dedicated the wins to the Ultimate Motorsport squad.

"I knew we had the pace to win that one," said Devaney after the second race. "I made a great start and just had to keep chipping away after that. We've found some great pace here and finally got the results that we've worked so hard for since the start. Everyone at Ultimate Motorsport deserves to enjoy this because they've all put the work in and we've finally done it."

Moving Devaney up to seventh in the overall standings, Ultimate Motorsport team manager Barry Walsh claims the results are indicative of the Irishman's true ability after a season riddled with bad luck.

"It's taken a lot of work to get here and I'm so pleased for Michael because he's had so much bad luck," he said. "But he's shown that when the tools are there, he will deliver. The engineers did a great job between the two races to find a bit more speed and we made the best of it."
