The teenager scored his first podium win of the campaign in South Wales over the Easter period, having never visited the circuit before.

Glorious sunshine saw the 17-year-old A-level student take the chequered flag with a remarkable 18.7-second cushion over the rest of the field.

And Luff also set the fastest lap, just under a second faster than his competitors, in a dominant display on the track.

He said: “It was great to get my first win in the championship and I'm looking forward to round three at Cadwell Park next month.”
