On an updrying track Verschoor was in command in Group B and
took the top spot with P1. Novalak was struggleing a bit to take
P11 only. Ye in Group A was very unlucky as his run was
shortened by a red flag 2 laps to the end, what saw him only on
P6 in the Group.
Grid for Race 1:
Verschoor - P2, Ye - P11, Novalak - P22
Novalak was very unlucky beeing hit from behind in lap 1 in turn
3 and had to retire with a broken rear suspension. Even worse
than that, a medical check up proofed a small fraction in his
right wrist, causing a longer pause for the young Briton. Ye
showed a good race moving up to P8, while Verschoor was putting
pressure on the leader. Verschoor kept his 2. place untill a red
flag due to heavy thunderstorms stopped the race.
Race 2: Beeing involved in
some overtaking action in the opening laps, Verschoor and Ye
lost the contact to the podium places already in the beginning.
Ye showed a brilliant drive towards the end of the race lapping
constantly 4/10 sec quicker than anybody else. In the end
Verschoor finished P4 and Ye P5.
