A lights-to-flag victory for Julien Andlauer (F/BWT Lechner Racing) in the
The race in Styria literally turned into a heated battle for the 30-strong field. Bright sunshine and temperatures soaring to 32-degrees Celsius made for challenging conditions. In the first lap, ten Voorde swept from second place past pole-sitter Andlauer. The Frenchman, however, countered immediately and reclaimed his lead. While Andlauer managed to pull clear from his pursuers, ten Voorde came under increasing pressure from Ammermüller. In lap nine, the seasoned specialist pulled alongside the MRS driver in the hairpin and overtook him at the end of the straight. “Larry ten Voorde defended himself well over a long stretch, but I was clearly faster. By the time I’d overtaken him, the gap to Julien Andlauer was simply too big for me to pose a serious threat,” said Ammermüller. The driver from Rotthalmünster in Bavaria was the only driver in the
Ten Voorde reached the flag after 17 laps in third place. “My start was really good, but unfortunately Julien Andlauer grabbed his chance for an immediate counterattack. In the duel for second place, Michael Ammermüller had the advantage as he’d kept a fresh set of tyres from the qualifying for the race,” stated the 22-year-old. Jaap van Lagen (NL/martinet by ALMÉRAS) was thrilled with his best result of the season so far with fourth place. Following him over the finish line were Mikkel Pedersen (DK/Dinamic Motorsport) and Florian Latorre (F/Fach Auto Tech), who triumphed over Dylan Pereira (L/Momo Megatron Lechner Racing) in a fierce battle during the final phase of the race.
Marvin Klein (F/pierre martinet by ALMÉRAS) was the best rookie after crossing the finish line in eighth place.
Roar Lindland (pierre martinet by ALMÉRAS) celebrated his first place in the ProAm class. For the Norwegian, this marks the third win of the season in this category. Second on the 4.318-kilometre rollercoaster circuit went to Philipp Sager (Dinamic Motorsport). This weekend’s race was a home event for the driver from Peggau in Austria. Behind Sager, Stephen Grove (AUS/Team Australia) took the flag as third in the amateur standings.
