Penultimate round for Lundgaard and García in Nogaro

Renault Sport Academy Drivers Christian Lundgaard and Marta García race in Nogaro, France, this weekend as the Spanish F4 Championship nears its climax.

Nogaro marks round six of the 2017 series with Estoril, Portugal, the final outing for the junior single-seater racers in November.

Christian is well in contention to claim a second title of the season after lifting the 2017 SMP F4 NEZ crown in Assen last weekend.

The Danish teen leads the way in Spain by 15 points from Alexander Smolyar with six races and 130 points still up for grabs.

Christian began the Spanish series in the perfect way with a hat-trick of wins in the opening round in Aragon in June.

The 16-year-old has been off the podium just twice since then, and has added a further nine podiums - including two victories - to occupy top spot.

Marta, meanwhile, is aiming to finish her first full season of single-seater racing in style as she chases down her rivals in the midfield battle.

Marta has 11 top ten finishes this season, with a best result of fifth coming in Jerez in round four.

Last time out, Marta took home 12 points courtesy of an eighth place in race one and a sixth in race three.

“I’m looking forward to this weekend because, after my win in Assen, I feel I have momentum and some confidence which I aim to continue. It’s a new track which I’ve never driven before and that is always interesting and difficult for everyone. I’m hoping to increase the championship lead as much as possible.”

9th – 53 points – 14/20 races completed

“It’s my first time racing this weekend at Nogaro in France, I’ve never been there, so I’m looking forward to learning the track. I’ll try to adapt quickly, find the limits and then focus on qualifying and the three races!”
