The World Series by Renault completed their third and fourth races of the season last weekend at the historic Spa-Francorchamps. Marcos Martinez continued his winning ways in Race 3 by claiming the top spot by 3.816 seconds over Bertrand Baguette. Martinez currently leads the championship with 45 points (3 wins) to his credit. Baguette put in a dominating performance of his own by improving 6 positions during the race; finishing 2nd after starting 8th; earning him the Hard Charger title for Race 3. Miguel Molina claimed the third and final spot on the podium. Other notable hard-chargers in Race 3 are Tobias Hegewald and Chris van der Drift who also improved 6 positions each.

In Race 4, James Walker claimed the win by 6.421 seconds over Baguette; who again had a nice race to finish runner-up. This was a solid run by Walker who has had his share of bad luck in the opening rounds, but has shown promise throughout every session. Miguel Molina rounded out the top-three once again, finding his way to the podium for the second time in as many races. The Hard-Charger of the weekend is Sten Pentus, who has impressed me thus far into 2009. The 27-year-old driver put in another solid drive, improving 9 positions to finish 11th after starting 20th. He is currently ninth in the overall standings.
