Hazelwood continued his good form from practice yesterday, gaining a one-tenth gap on his teammate in qualifying to grab his first ever pole position in the Forpark National class.
The Fujitsu driver then had a good start in race one, gaining a jump on the series leader to take his maiden win in the Formula 3 category.
Hazelwood then had a race later on in the day, holding third position for the 9-lap race.
“It’s been an incredible day for myself, I achieved a lot more than I had expected,” said Hazelwood.
“It’s a great credit to my team, family and supporters to make this happen, I would have not done it without them.
“It’s difficult to get a good start here without rolling as the starting grid is on the hill. Hopefully tomorrow we can get it nailed and produce great results in race three tomorrow.”
Tomorrow’s racing includes one 14-lap race for the final race of the round.
“It’s going to be a long race so it is going to come down to who can manage their tyres the best.”
“The top three is very close, it is going to be a very spectacular 14-lap race tomorrow.”
