Rising star Luke Browning recovered from a tough start to the weekend at Hockenheim to secure a second win of the ADAC F4 Championship season.

The Cheshire-based racer headed into the fifth meeting of the campaign on the back of a double podium finish at the Sachsenring, with the Brit eager to try and fight for a second win of the year.

Having been off the pace in practice due to a front wing issue, Luke qualified in fifth place on the grid for race one in his US Racing-run car, and then went one better in qualifying two to secure fourth place on the grid for race two.

Embroiled in the battle for the leading positions in race one, Luke would take the chequered flag in third spot although a post-race penalty for a clash with Joshua Dufek would drop him back to fifth spot.

Having scored the same result in race two, Luke lined up fourth on the grid for the finale and wasted little time in making his way to the front, taking advantage of an error by Sami Meguetounif to secure the race lead.

Despite huge pressure from Dufek, Luke held on at the front to take win number two of his German campaign to cement his position inside the top three in the standings with one round left to run.
