RD1: Turvey Scores First British F3 Win in Tricky Conditions
A snow shower 30-minutes before the opening round of the 2008 British F3 International Series caused a few headache for the 27 drivers as the wet track dried out during the 30-minute race. Oliver Turvey (#17 Carlin) came through to take chequered flag after taking the lead off the line. Max Chilton (#1 Hitech) took his first ever British F3 podium after teammates Jaime Alguersuari (#4 Carlin) and Brendon Hartley (#3 Carlin) went off after fighting for 2nd place. Atte Mustonen (#26 Double R) finished 3rd after starting from a lowly 10th place on the grid. Andy Meyrick (#56 Carlin) took the National Class win, making it a double for Carlin Motorsport.
