It proved to be a memorable weekend at Spa-Francorchamps for Hitech Pulse-Eight’s Alex Dunne, as the Irishman claimed his first two GB3 victories, broke the record for the most points earned in a three-race GB3 event since the implementation of the current points structure in 2018, and earned the Sunoco Fastest Driver of the Weekend Award.
Dunne proved to be rapid all weekend, just missing out on pole position in qualifying by a tenth of a second, but overturned that in races one and two by sweeping past pole sitter Callum Voisin on each occasion.
In doing so, he also set the fastest race lap of the weekend, with his time of 2m16.223s coming on the same lap he passed Voisin for the win.
Dunne is the third recipient of the prize this year, with championship leader Joseph Loake securing the honour at Oulton Park, and Tymek Kucharczyk earning it at Silverstone.
“I’m very happy with how this weekend has gone,” Dunne said. “Our pace was super strong right from the start in practice, the team at Hitech GP gave me a fantastic car to drive all weekend, so a huge thanks to them.
“I’m glad we’ve finally had the opportunity to showcase the pace we have, taking two wins and the fastest lap to go with it each time.
“I’m feeling very comfortable in GB3 now, and that’s starting to come out in our results. It’s great to catch up a lot of points in the championship, and I’m looking forward to what we can achieve from here, starting at Snetterton next time out.”
