Regular readers will know that I am a fan of Formula Four racing, and hence when I was watching the BTCC races at the weekend, I made sure I paid attention to the MSA Formula at Rockingham, which forms one of the support series for the Touring Car action. The weekend had started well for Lando Norris, who managed pole position, fastest lap and the race win, helping him along with his quest for the inaugural MSA Formula title.

Sunday saw different conditions at the circuit, with a warm and summery day. The first race of the day saw Rafael Martins crash out, with a safety car being deployed. Ricky Collard made the most of the restart, as did Sennan Fielding, who moved up to second place. As the race progressed, Fielding started to catch Collard, but Ricky managed to stay in front to take the chequered flag.

Later in the afternoon, the third and final race of the MSA Formula weekend started with Colton Herta on pole, alongside Lando Norris. Herta got off to a good start, but Norris had to fight to retain his place. Sennan Fielding started fourth, and was quickly alongside Norris, but slid into the tyre barrier, which required a safety car period to allow his car to be recovered. Herta maintained his lead ahead of Norris, with Dan Ticktum now in third. As normal, the race was exciting, but the top three positions did not change, and leave Norris leading the table from Ricky Collard, with Dan Ticktum now equal on points with Sennan Fielding in third.

We watched as Rafa Martins had plenty of grass taken from his car during a pit stop…

I took a trip over to scrutineering to see some of the cars and drivers after the race, where the media were waiting to interview the drivers.

Here are a few photos from the weekend.
