CDR ends BRDC British F3 campaign with three points finishes

Tewkesbury’s Chris Dittmann Racing (CDR) ended its BRDC British F3 championship action for the season with three points-scoring finishes, and pace to challenge for the top-ten, despite beginning the weekend on the back foot at Donington Park last weekend (23-24 September).
