SEASONS BEST: Josh Webster claimed successive 16th place finishes over the weekend at Silverstone

Race-ace Josh Webster had to settle for back-to-back 16th place finishes in the Silverstone stage of the GP3 series over the weekend.

After qualifying 21st for the first race, the Mickfield, near Stowmarket and Debenham, based driver rallied to progress up the field to eventually claim 16th and matched that result a day later, finishing from the position he qualified.

Despite clinching his best positions of the season so far, the 19-year-old, who lies in 24th in the standings, will be hoping for an improvement next time out at Germany’s Nürburgring circuit this weekend.
