Newly-crowned British F3 champion Jordan King has finished his campaign in the series on a high note, taking a confident victory from pole position in race three at Nurburgring.
Fellow front row starter Will Buller was on King’s tail for most of the race, but found no opportunity to overtake, eventually settling for second place. Double R’s Antonio Giovinazzi rounded out the top three, securing second place in the championship by one point.
Carlin’s Nicholas Latifi and Fortec’s Alfonso Celis rounded out the top five, with the Mexican keeping both Jann Mardenborough and Felipe Guimaraes behind, after an early-lap incident between the duo forced them to fight their way back up the field.
Tatiana Calderon finished eighth, ahead of National Class winner Sun Zheng and his rival Chris Vlok. Sean Gelael had to do with 11th after being spun around by Spike Goddard, with the latter finishing 13th behind William Barbosa after a drive-through penalty.
