Tarun Reddy, 16, scored two sixth-place in his debut race in the 2014 Protyre Formula Renault Championship at Rockingham Motor Speedway. Reddy was sixth in races one and three, and eighth in race two, ending the weekend in sixth place in the championship. 

Tarun admitted having a tough start but was happy to finish the weekend on a very strong note. He said, “The pressure got to me a little bit in first qualifying. I lack experience of making the most of new tyres and didn’t use them very well, and that cost me a good starting position. But in second qualifying I did a better job. It was my first race in England and I didn’t want to do anything stupid. I just wanted to come over the line in a good position.”

In the first race, Tarun passed American TJ Fischer for eighth place on lap three, then moved up to sixth as drivers ahead made errors. In race two, Reddy went from 10th on the grid to eighth on the first lap. The final race saw the leading runners in a big train in the early laps, with Tarun passing Belgian Wolfgang Reip on lap two to take seventh place. 

Tarun is now looking forward to the second round, which takes place at Donington Park on 31st May/1st June.
