Sam celebrates Silverstone victory

Sam continued the summer of outstanding success for British sport on home soil, as he took victory at Silverstone today in the latest round of the World Series by Renault Championship.

The I.S.R man’s weekend had started in challenging fashion when his newly-replaced engine caught fire during qualifying, but he showed impressive grit to recover from this early set-back to take a well-deserved win, his second of the season, in front of his home crowd.

He said: “This was a tough weekend for us but we stuck together as a team and dug very deep to pull out a great win. This win is just reward for our hard work and determination in the face of adversity.”
