Amanda Whitaker clinched the Formula Atlantic class of the Historic European F2 Championship with a win and a second place in class in rounds nine and 10 at Spa.
On her first experience of the track, Whitaker put her Chevron B34 on class pole in typically wet and changing Spa weather conditions.
In the opening race, she ran second to German racer Herman Unold (Lotus 69). “My set-up Jacques Letlhon wasn’t ideal for the conditions and I was struggling with understeer, so after a couple of moments on the opening lap it was best for me to play it safe and collect the points,” she said.
In the dry second race, she dominated the class to win by over 30 seconds, and a tally of seven class wins and three seconds was enough to secure the title with two rounds still to run.
Chris Alford took his March 762 to two Class C podiums.
