YOUNG AUSSIE open wheeler Alex Ninovic has continued on with his brilliant start to the 2024 British F4 season, taking a double at Round 3 in Snetterton in trying conditions, his maiden wins in British F4.

The former national KA3 Karting champion has had a seemingly comfortable transition to the Pirelli tyres in the Tatuus F4 T-421 after a solid first season with Rodin motorsport in the Spanish F4.

The wins (his first in Europe) take him up to second in the pointscore, 30 points behind British leader Deagen Fairclough.

The humble young man took two poles over the course of the weekend, making it three for the year, entering the third round having already taken podiums at Donington and Brands Hatch.

Along with his two fastest laps in races one and three in the course of taking two wins, the New South Welshman also put in a barnstorming effort in the reverse grid Race 2, coming from P12 to finish fourth.

“I never like to overestimate how I might be going, and coming into the weekend I wasn’t expecting to take two wins at all, so it was an amazing result,”Ninovic said post-race.

“It was a weird race (Race 3), a couple of laps from the end the rain came from nowhere, soaking the whole track and bringing out the red flag.

“We had a good start however and had a nice big gap, so really happy with the performance, as well as the team getting a one-two-three to finish the weekend.”

To capture the first win of his Junior Formulae career in Europe, Ninovic was lightning from lights out but a safety with seven minutes remaining in tough conditions resulted in a one lap dash to the finish. To guarantee his win, the Rodin youngster put in the fastest lap of the day to get the monkeys off his back.

He now heads to Thruxton on June 8-9 with wind in his sails and chance to challenge for the championship lead.

“Thruxton will be a challenge,” he said looking ahead, “It’s long without too many corners so it’ll be some tight racing.”
