PETALING JAYA: Nazim Azman is in upbeat mood for the remainder of the EuroFormula Open series after chalking up three podium finishes in Round 3 held at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium last weekend.

The 19-year-old described his success at the spectacular track as the best weekend for him so far this year.

“Great weekend, the best of the year so far.

“Three podiums from three races is an amazing result and I couldn’t ask for more,” said Nazim, whose perfect weekend was enough to lift him back into third spot in the overall standings, breaking through the 100-point barrier ahead of Round 4 in Budapest, Hungary, next month.

Nazim now has 118 points.

Cameron Das leads the eight-round championship with 176 points ahead of Foster (157).

In Race 1, CryptoTower Racing Team rider Nazim finished second behind British teammate Louis Foster.

Nazim, who used a Dallara F320 Spiess machine, then finished third in Race 2 and Race 3 behind American Das of Team Motopark. Foster also won both Race 2 and 3.

“My number one goal then was to make good starts after not a good weekend at Paul Ricard (Round 2).

“I think that we really managed to nail that target, climbing three or four positions every time and ending up in the top two by the end of the first lap.

“Our main focus for next weekend would be race pace but, overall, there are a lot of positives to take away from Spa,” he added.
