Georg Kelstrup wins the third race in Spa

The Danish MP Motorsport driver took the advantage of the restart after the first safety car to take the lead after a double overtake that allowed him the victory. Dilano Van’t Hoff, who finished second, is the first leader of the F4 Spanish championship. As it happened yesterday in the first two races, the safety car was again the protagonist. The safety car had to come out on two times after the incidents that occurred on the first lap of the race and on the restart. Both accidents meant that the eighteen-minute race was reduced to less than three laps of competition.


The race began with one of the favourites stall at the start. Daniel Macia was unable to engage first gear and the Valencian rider stalled on the main straight. His team-mate was also unlucky, who, after a touch in the first corner, was also relegated to the back of the grid. The safety car had to come out after an incident at turn nine, which slowed down the race for almost ten minutes, as the crew had to clean up all the gravel that was left on the track.


After the restart we saw, without a doubt, one of the overtakings of the weekend. The fight between Josep Marti and Dilano Van’t Hoff on the Kemmel straight gave Georg Kelstrup the opportunity to overtake both drivers just before the safety car came back on track due to an incident in the first corner. With the race time expired, the safety car pitted for a final lap in which the Danish driver managed to hold off Dilano Van’t Hoff to take his first win of the season.


After the race, Georg Kelstrup was delighted with his result. “I am very happy. I want to thank the whole team for the work they have done this weekend. We’ve had two races where I couldn’t fight for podiums because I started at the back but today I started fifth and I had a good chance. It was a great race and again I would like to thank the team for everything they have done this weekend”.
