Tamas Pal Kiss scored his maiden Auto GP win at Le Castellet in Race 1. The Zele Racing Hungarian driver finished ahead of Markus Pommer, who reduced his gap to to the front of the charts to 12 points from Kimiya Sato. Japanese racer completed the podium, although could have faced an even harder luck as he stood still at the start of the formation lap. While he was repositioned at the end of the pack, Sato was off to an incredibly quick start moving up to fourth by the first corner.
Out front, Eurotech’s Kevin Giovesi was leading Pommer and Kiss, but the Italian fell victim from a fitting problem on his right rear tire and slipped to fourth. The same kind of issue happened to Andrea Roda, who rounded out the top-5 for Virtuosi UK after a glitch with his left rear. Italian youngster Loris Spinelli took sixt for Eurotech as he keeps climbing his learning curve on the demanding Auto GP car.
The points zone was completed by Michela Cerruti, Yoshitaka Kuroda, Michele La Rosa and Giuseppe Cipriani.
