Unstoppable Cian Carey made it six wins in six as Chris Dittmann Racing dominated proceedings once again at Snetterton in F3 Cup this weekend (11-12 May).




The reigning champ followed up his hat-trick of wins at Donington Park with three more at the Norfolk circuit to pull well away at the top of the standings in his bid to retain the title.



And a late drop-out even saw Team Principal Chris Dittmann get behind the wheel for a rare outing to give Carey a run for his money with three of his own podiums for good measure.



Chris said: “I wasn’t going to let Cian take the wins without a fight. Race 2 was a cracking race, I chased him down for most of it and there was a 20-second lead between us and the other drivers at the end.


“In the last race I had closed the gap down to 0.088 seconds, pushing him all the way. “But Cian was brilliant again this weekend and to have now taken six wins out of six really shows his class. “Patrick and Daniel both also had solid weekends, with Patrick putting in some quick times in particular.”



Irish driver Cian was in stunning form on the opening weekend, hitting the ground running to take all three wins and launch his title defence in style.


This time round, he was joined by Phillip and Patrick Jeans and Daniel Tapinos. But with Phillip unwell and missing part of testing, he withdrew altogether and kindly offered the seat to team principal Chris.



Qualifying went well on a damp track that began to dry out late on. Cian was in fine form to take pole, with Chris close behind in second, Patrick P7 and Daniel P9, despite spinning towards the end of his session.



With the track dry for the first race, everyone went out on new tyres. Cian got a good start and took the overall lead from Leaney, driving by invitation but not racing in Class.



After a couple of laps he dropped back, but still took the win in Class, with Chris taking third in his first outing of the year and Patrick and Daniel putting in good drives to finish P7 and P9.




Race 2 saw Cian take the overall lead early on with Chris soon hot on his heels in second. A brilliant battle with fast lap times developed, with the boss chasing his young champion for the remainder of the race and the two Chris Dittmann drivers pulling well away from the rest of the pack. They were 20 seconds ahead of their nearest rival by the end, finishing in first and second place. Patrick also put on some pacey times to finish P6, with Daniel P10.
 




Principal Chris Dittmann: “Six podiums overall this weekend is a brilliant effort by the team and sets us up nicely for Oulton Park next month.”



The third race was another closely contested affair for Cian and Chris. Both got good starts with Chris determined not to let Cian take the win without putting the pressure on. He had closed the gap to just 0.088 seconds at the end, with Cian just holding on for his third win of the weekend. Patrick put in another solid performance to finish P6, with Daniel coming in P9.



Chris added: “It was a really good weekend overall with some great battles between myself and Cian.
“Six podiums overall this weekend is a brilliant effort by the team and sets us up nicely for Oulton Park next month.”
