Armed Forces eMotorsports Championships: Foulkes takes double victory at Knockhill

Watch: Round 5 of the Armed Forces eMotorsports Championships at Knockhill.

Royal Air Force eMotorsport driver Will Foulkes took double victory at Fife-based Knockhill Circuit as the 2023 Armed Forces eMotorsport Championships reaches its halfway point. 

The championship has been dominated by drivers from the RAF as the light blues look set to sew up the team championship title in the coming weeks. 

Foulkes started Race 1 in second behind pole sitter, the RAF's Chris Pawley, to then swiftly overtake his RAF teammate to lead the race to the chequered flag.

Foulkes' RAF teammates Stu McPhadden and Ryan Martin rounded off the RAF 1-2-3 in Race 1 with Pawley settling for fourth position. 

Race 2 began with Foulkes in the sixth grid slot for the standing start, getting a good jump when the starting lights went out.

Foulkes found himself within touching distance of Pawley, who was holding first position, once again, until Foulkes got the jump on his RAF teammate at the final hairpin on lap 7.

The RAF's McPhadden had a disastrous Race 2 after getting tapped on the rear by Foulkes on the second lap, sending him spinning off onto the grass and tumbling down the order. 

McPhadden's attempts to recover his race ended when he lost the rear of his car and found himself spinning off once again on lap 13.

With Foulkes taking victory once again in Race 2, he was followed by his fellow RAF drivers Martin in second and Pawley in third. 

Last year's champion, Chris Boland, recovered well to finish fourth.
