The 18-year-old, driving for Fortec Motorsports, was placed third in Race 15. In Race 16, Weiron could only manage to finish 12th after experiencing mechanical failure.

“It was a difficult weekend because we struggled to get the car perfect. However, the team have done a superb job all year and I have to thank them for that.
