The Tottenham Hotspur SF Racing Team and driver Duncan Tappy recovered from a flat tyre in race one for a second podium finish of the Superleague Formula season at Belgium's Zolder circuit at the weekend.

Starting seventh on the grid in tricky, wet conditions, Duncan managed to overtake Roma, PSV and Sevilla in the space of four laps between lap 19 and lap 23 to go from sixth to second behind Beijing Gouan.

It was a much-needed boost after two retirements in round two last time out at Germany's Nurburgring and suffering a flat tyre in race one in Belgium.

Qualifying ninth on the grid on Saturday, Duncan picked up the flat tyre on the first lap of race one before finishing 12th overall.

The fine second spot - the team's second podium after round one at Donington - lifted Tottenham Hotspur SF RT up to sixth place overall.

Beijing's win sees them head the table after three rounds with PSV, who claimed third and seventh on the two races, second overall and race one winners Liverpool third.

Duncan said afterwards: ""It was great to be back on the podium - it is the only place where racing drivers want to be.

"It was a brilliant race for me - I really enjoyed it. It was really good to do some overtaking and end up in second position - I am very happy."
