Three races, three different winners. The Formula Ford thrills continued at Silverstone yesterday with Jayde Kruger and Harrison Scott joining Saturday victor Camren Kaminsky in the winner’s circle. Both of Sunday’s races were thrillers decided only in the closing laps, and both had the sizeable Silverstone crowd on the edge of their grandstand seats.

There was a double celebration for rookie racer Scott, 17, who in addition to his maiden car-racing win also secured the Scholarship Cup championship title with four races in hand. The Essex-based driver secured the title yesterday morning at Silverstone after a strong run to second in class in the 26th round.

Harrison, who came to the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain as an experienced karter but a near total car-racing rookie, has enjoyed a stellar season in the Falcon Motorsport Mygale. He first climbed the stop step of the Scholarship podium at Donington Park in only his fourth race, and has gone on to claim the honours 10 times so far.

The VCM Motorsport-backed racer wins a free championship registration for Formula Ford 2014 and free race entries for the coming season.
