Frederic Vervisch of Eurasia Motorsport’s associate team, Team Goddard, won rounds nine to eleven of the 2007-8 Asian F3 Series held at the Batangas Race Circuit in the Philippines on February 16-17th. His dominent performance came to an end in round twelve when Matt Howson beat him to the flag. Team Goddard team mate, Rafael Suzuki, scored two second and two third places from the weekend.

Vervisch qualified on pole position with Suzuki alongside him and he was able to pull away in all of the first three races to take accomplished wins. Suzuki meanwhile had a more evenful weekend having to fend off Matt Howson for the second spot. The rookie driver continues to impress with his performance and that elusive first win will not be far away.

The cars joined the grid for the fourth race with slick tyres mounted but the heavens opened and there was mad rush to fit wet tyres. Both drivers struggled in the race, having several off track excursions. “The set up that makes us so quick in the dry is not good in the wet and we were unable to change the cars in the time available on the grid” reported Team Engineer, Roberto Bautista.

Vervisch now leads Matt Howson in the points table with Rafael Suzuki in third place”
