Giovesi takes his first Auto GP victory

After Tamas Pal Kiss scored his first Auto GP win yesterday, Kevin Giovesi cruised to victory in Race 2 for Eurotech topping the Hungarian, who made the most out of the weekend in France. The race was held in pouring rain and the drivers used the Kumho wet weather tires for the first time this year. The final spot on the podium was secured by Euronova’s Kimiya Sato. The Japanese retained the lead in standings despite a contact with Pal Kiss that almost jeopardized his run during the first lap causing small front wing damage.

Race 1’s second-placed driver Markus Pommer ended up in fourth for Super Nova. The German drove a recovery race after being forced to start from row 4 due to the reverse grid format. He edged team-mate Michela Cerruti, who had led the pack in the opening stages. Virtuosi UK drivers Sam Dejonghe and Andrea Roda didn’t end up too far away, while Yoshitaka Kuroda, Michele La Rosa and Giuseppe Cipriani rounded out the top-10. The latter was penalized with a drive-through for having crossed the white line exiting the pits. Eurotech’s youngster Loris Spinelli also suffered from some bad luck as he stopped at the end of the formation lap for a mechanical issue.
