Enaam Ahmed repeated his early season BRDC Formula Three victory double at Snetterton at the weekend to be crowned champion in the most emphatic fashion.
'It's been a pretty emotional year,' claimed the new champion after clinching his second race win of the weekend to ensure he can't be beaten in the final round.
Ahmed started the weekend off in style by claiming pole position and then went on to win the opening race by holding off a determined challenge from Toby Sowery.
Fifth place resulted from the reversed grid second race while another pole start resulted in second win of the weekend, fending off Sowery once more to seal the series crown.
Oliver Barker was a triple Radical Challenge winner while Thetford's Jack Lang, the series leader coming to his home track, fought a rear guard action to keep his title hopes alive.
