Round 3: Lucky Khera wins the third race of the season, with Graham de Zille winning in the Coppa Shell.

Third Win. Lucky Khera (Graypaul Birmingham) managed to convert his pole position into his third win of the season in a thrilling opening race of the weekend, in tough conditions with rain falling throughout the race.

Trofeo Pirelli. The drivers provided exciting action right from the start, as Paul Hogarth (Stratstone Manchester) reacted quickly from the rolling start to move into third position, overtaking Graham de Zille (Meridien Modena) who dropped down to sixth at the start. For the first half of the race, H. Sikkens (H.R. Owen London) managed to place his car very well to defend and hold off Hogarth, though Hogarth eventually managed to make his way through, managing to hang on to second place as the chequered flag waved, in front of Sikkens in third. All of this allowed Khera to pull away and establish a dominant lead, eventually coming across the line with a thirty-six second advantage.

Coppa Shell. Graham de Zille (Meridien Modena) drove a fantastic recovery race after dropping down to sixth at the start. After passing Alex Moss (Graypaul Birmingham) and Jamie Thwaites (JCT600 Brooklands Leeds), de Zille was able to catch Sikkens and take third position following a thrilling duel between the pair, to finish first in the Coppa Shell and third overall. Jamie Thwaites held on to second place, and Paul Rogers (JCT600 Brooklands Leeds) capitalised on car issues for Alex Moss to take third place, and secure his first Ferrari Challenge UK podium.

Round 4: Lucky Khera wins the fourth race of the season, with Graham de Zille winning in the Coppa Shell.

Fourth Win. Lucky Khera (Graypaul Birmingham) continued his dominating run of form to win the fourth race of the season in the Ferrari Challenge UK 2020 season.

Trofeo Pirelli. The race got off to a thrilling start as the drivers entered the first corner four cars abreast in the midfield. With the field running bumper to bumper heading into the Craner Curves, Paul Hogarth (Stratstone Manchester) and Jamie Thwaites (JCT600 Brooklands Leeds) unfortunately made contact, which ended the race prematurely for both drivers. This allowed Lucky Khera (Graypaul Birmingham) to pull away from the field, driving impressively once again to pull out a 14 second advantage by the time he crossed the line to claim his fourth win of the season.

Coppa Shell. Graham de Zille (Meridien Modena) engaged in a thrilling duel with H. Sikkens (H.R. Owen London) right from the start, with the two drivers swapping places throughout the first half of the race. Unfortunately, following a spin, Sikkens had to come into the pits and retire from the race, which eased the pressure on de Zille who took another Coppa Shell victory. Behind him, Alex Moss (Graypaul Birmingham) and Paul Simmerson (Graypaul Birmingham) fought brilliantly throughout the race, with Paul Simmerson finally managing to make a successful move to get ahead of Moss for second place in the Coppa Shell, with Moss following closely behind to come home in third place.

The next races of the Ferrari Challenge UK will take place at Silverstone on 19-20 September 2020.
