The Tauranga motor racing driver Richie Stanaway has wrapped up the German Formula Three championship with a round to spare.

The 19-year-old took the title at the Assen circuit in the Netherlands on Saturday night and overnight won the meeting's second race to take his tally of wins in the series to eleven from sixteen starts.

The latest win was the 50th of his career.

One round remains in the German championship, at Hockenheim next month.
