Devon's Harry Tincknell claimed his first podium finish of the British Formula Three season in round five at Oulton Park.

Starting third on the grid, Tincknell retained his position throughout the 13-lap race to finish on the podium.

In round four, the Exeter-based driver crossed the line in sixth, which was followed by a seventh-placed finish in round six.

Tincknell is now ninth in the drivers' championship with 18 points.

He said: "I'm really happy to get on the podium in only my second F3 meeting.

"All the long hours that the guys at Fortec Motorsports put in over the winter were worth it, and there's still so much more to come from this car."

The three next rounds of the British Formula Three Championship will be held at Snetterton in Norfolk on 14-15 May.
