7 June 1999


Brazilian driver Luciano Burti is still leading the British F-3
Championship after the 7th round in Croft this weekend. Burti finished
second behind Marc Hynes and now both drivers have 94 points. “I saw
that I couldn’t overtake him, so I kept a bit back and concentrated
myself on making the fastest lap and getting one extra point” said

Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan finished third and is now very close on
Jenson Button, fighting for the third place in the championship. He is
the best indian driver in motorsport history.
