Borkovic lands ETCC race two success in Hungary



Dusan Borkovic made up for the disappointment of his drive-through penalty in race one to triumph in race two, having started from third on the grid at the Hungaroring in cool and cloudy conditions. 

The starting grid for round two of the FIA European Touring Car Cup was formed of the top eight positions from the first 12-lap race reversed, meaning that the Czech Republic’s Michal Matejovský was on pole. The BMW driver made a good start, but was hit by Alexander Artemyev at the first turn – which subsequently earned the Kazakh driver a drive-through penalty for causing the collision.

This left the way clear for Borković to take the lead, which he held all the way to the end in his SEAT Leon Cup Racer, with the similar cars of Ferenc Ficza and Petr Fulin finishing second and third.

Georgia’s Davit Kajala was fourth and best of the headlining TCT2 category in his BMW, while eighth place for Swiss Honda driver Peter Rikli meant that he was highest-placed of the TC2 runners. Another win for Niklas Mackschin in the Super 1600 class rounded off a perfect weekend for the young German in his Ford Fiesta.

In the championship standings, Kajaia leads TC2T after the first two races, with Matejovksy heading TC2, Mackschin in front of Super 1600, while Ficza and Borkovic are tied for the lead of the Single Make Trophy.
