Maxwell Scores First National Series Podium At Phillip Island

After recently scoring his first win at Sydney's Eastern Creek, the Darwin teenager has picked up his first podium in the Australian Formula Ford Championship last weekend on the 22nd - 24th of May at the prestigious Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. After competing in only one round of the championship, the Sonic Motor Racing Services driver placed 3rd for the round showing fantastic pace throughout the race weekend, setting a new race lap record along the way.
"It was great to be able to back up our strong performance at Sydney Motorsport Park and bounce back from round 1 at Sandown Raceway. We were able to keep it together for all 3 races bagging some solid points along the way."
This bumps the Territorian up to 6th place in the championship trailing 2nd by a mere 8 points after two rounds.
The 'Bosch Car Service' formula ford performed faultlessly all weekend showing great potential. Maxwell will now work on improving for the third round of the championship at Winton Motor raceway.
"The car has definitely got strong pace, I just need to improve my qualifying performance to pull the weekend together, which will be vital heading into round 3 at Winton, a track renowned for its difficulty in overtaking."
Thomas is looking forward to another successful round where he plans to claim another good result.
