A perfect weekend with pole position and three race wins in the penultimate round of the German ADAC Formula Masters Championship at the Nurburgring circuit has seen young Kiwi (Tauranga) driver, Richie Stanaway (18) win the seven-round German ADAC Championship with one round (three races to go).  Following the Nurburgring round his total of 315 points cannot be beaten, no matter what happens in the final round at the Oschersleben circuit in October.

“What a fantastic way to win this championship. I must give huge thanks to my Ma-Con team for giving me a perfect car for this round, and the great job they have done all season, and with that I was able to win 12 of the 18 races. I also have to thank all those people in Europe and New Zealand who have helped and supported me to win this championship,” said Stanaway.

Richie won each of the races comfortably, the first race from his team-mate and flat-mate, William Vermont (France) and Dominik Baumann (Austria), the second from Vermont and Patrick Schranner (Germany) and the third from Schranner and Vermont.

Points: Stanaway 315, Schranner 239, Farmbacher (Germany) 171, Vermont 146, Wehrlein (France) 131, Tweraser (Austria) 117.

As of now Richie has lead the most distance, won the most races, and finished on the podium more times than anyone else in the history of the series.

Next (final) round: October 2-3 Oschersleben.?
