Atte Mustonen, British F3, Thruxton, 2007 | British F3Thruxton served up two debut winners as Atte Mustonen scored his first British F3 victory to match the feat of Double R team mate Stephen Jelley in the first race.

Niall Breen finished second ahead of Rodolfo Gonzalez who got onto the podium for the first time.

Once again championship leader Marko Asmer had a quiet race, starting and finishing fifth behind Maro Engel.
