ROYSTON racing driver Edward Heinzelmann had mixed fortunes at the penultimate round of the BARC Formula Renault Championship at Thruxton on Sunday.
Heinzelmann, who drives for Heathsports of Royston, qualified in pole position for the Club Class race, but did not enjoy the best of starts.
He lost two places on the first lap, but had regained them both by lap three.
But after running wide at a corner on his third lap, Heinzelmann eventually finished the race in fifth place.

He said: "It was a disappointing result for me, which I put down to inexperience of the circuit as there was no opportunity to practice before the event.
"I did however get extra points for qualifying on pole and for the fastest lap during the race."
