Competing in the fiercely fought USF2000 category, he qualified fourth for the first race and had his best start of the season, which catapulted him into second spot, where he stayed for the remainder of the race.

However, things soured on the second day when his car�s front brakes failed, sending him on a couple of hairy off-circuit spins and finished 14th. The brakes were sorted for the final race, but the car wasn�t perfect, yet, he still ran a strong fourth in the third heat.

The Banksia Grove 20-year-old retained his position at fourth on the USF2000 Championship, and remains the leading rookie.

Fellow Australian Luke Gabin, of Kwinana, is sixth in the championship.
