Nicolai Kjaergaard was relieved to return to the top step of the podium to complete a strong weekend at Brands Hatch.
Kjaergaard’s win backs up a third place in Race One and an impressive rise to ninth in the reverse grid Race Two.
The Dane led home Carlin teammate Jamie Caroline for a Carlin 1-2, while championship leader Linus Lundqvist maintained a healthy advantage with third place.
Kjaergaard was quick to praise his Carlin team after ending a run of one podium finish in six races.
“Carlin have had mega pace all year and prepared a fantastic car, it’s great to be back at the top step of the podium after two average weekends. I’m really, really pleased.
“The start was good enough and after that all I had to do was a decent job and it’s difficult to overtake, don’t make a mistake and stay consistent.”
Despite a 111-point deficit to Lundqvist, Kjaergaard says there is still motivation for the rest of the season.
“Obviously we want to do as well as we can at Donnington and that means wins. I can’t control what he does, but I’m going to try and win as much as possible as I still have second place to play for.”
