MOTORSPORT: Hoggard has to settle for second
Weston Hills teenager Johnathan Hoggard finished second to Ayrton Simmons in round nine of the BRDC British F3 event after a controversial final race of the weekend at Silverstone.
Hoggard had triumphed over adversity in the first two days. He started 17th in race one after a 10-place grid penalty from Snetterton but moved himself up to seventh.
However, he then received a five-second penalty which meant he started 12th in the race two grid and still managed to finish second, earning him the 'Fastest British F3 Driver of the Weekend' award from major sponsor Sunoco.
