Race 2 flash: Borković beats Jost to Zolder ETCC victory




Single Make Trophy contender Dušan Borković bagged his fifth outright victory in this season’s FIA European Touring Car Cup after catching and passing Ronny Jost for top spot in the second race at Zolder.

TC2 contender Peter Rikli powered his Honda into the lead on the charge to the first corner and held on until lap three when Jost moved ahead. Borković followed Jost through, eventually moving to the front three laps later.

Jost tried to hit back but Borković blocked his move at the final chicane and gradually pulled clear. Mato Homola was next up after spending several laps trying to pass Petr Fulín. Andreas Pfister made up for his race one exit in fifth from the back of the grid following repairs to his SEAT.

Michal Matĕjovský won TC2 ahead of the courageous Rikli, while Turkey’s Ümit Ülkü took a maiden TC2T victory in his BMW after Davit Kajaia took a trip through the gravel exiting the first chicane and dropped back to second in class in ninth overall. Aytaç Biter completed the top 10 followed by Daniel Conrad, Galip Atar and Super 1600 victor Niklas Mackschin.

Ulrike Krafft, Erwin Lukas and Florian Hildner completed the finishers with Hildner recovering from a gravel trap visit on lap two. Gilles Bruckner retired before completing a flying lap while Ben Lintgen was a non-starter following mechanical issues in race one. Clickhere for the provisional classification.
