Lasse Sorensen has scored his third, and possibly most difficult, French F4 victory of the weekend at Nogaro.

The Dane kept his leading position after the start, however, he was not able to build a gap as he had done before. Dorian Boccolacci was running at the same pace as Sorensen and spent the entire race right behind him, but Sorensen absorbed all the pressure to win the race.

Felix Hirsiger had another challenging race, as he had to defend from Vladimir Atoev throughout but he also managed to keep third to collect his third podium finish of the weekend.

Mexican Patricio O’Ward and Russian Denis Bulatov took fifth and sixth respectively followed by Valentin Hasse-Clot and Joseph Mawson. The top ten was completed by Bryan Elpitiya and Paul Hokfelt Jr.
