Fortec’s Johnathan Hoggard was pleased to punish mistakes on Saturday at Snetterton as he took a Race One win and a Race Three pole position.
Hoggard lined up second for Race One but made his pressure count as polesitter Clement Novalak slid wide to allow Hoggard through.
“My start could have been slightly better, I got a bit of wheelspin but I still almost passed Clement at turn two on the opening lap, he’d gone a bit wide and I was so close to getting the move done around the outside at turn three but again I didn’t quite manage it.
“It was then just a case of following him and seeing if he made a mistake, which he did at turn two again. I managed to pass him there when he went wide.”
“I was a bit closer than before, I think he made a mistake a couple of laps beforehand at the last corner, it’s just mostly flat through turn one. I managed to keep that momentum going and I think he was too late on the brakes and locked up and ran really wide, and I was able to sweep through.”
Hoggard is looking to add consistency to his repertoire having felt that it was at times lacking during his British F4 campaign last season, with two top-four finishes at Oulton Park preceding the win on Saturday.
“At this stage you want to take as many points as you can, luckily for me I’ve managed to do that this season so far. Starting P2 and taking P1 is a really good result so hopefully we can go again for race three.”
