34 points: that was the amazing tally grabbed by Jon Lancaster in Donington.
The Brit boasted two staggering drives in his home race, clinching a dominating win in the wet in Race 1 (also posting the fastest lap of the race) and getting a great 4th place in Race 2 starting from P8. This allowed him to win the Weekend classification, bringing home the 60.000 euros prize money that comes with 1st place. Doing so, he entered in the same “club” of Giovanni Venturini, Sergei Afanasiev and Luca Filippi.

Jon Lancaster had an amazing debut weekend in Auto GP.
He arrived in Brno with just two days of testing in the car, an experience dating back to six months ago in Barcelona, but despite this he was immediately on the pace: 2nd in the first Free Practice session, Jon then was fifth in Qualifying but just 2 tenths adrift from pole position.
