Luka Nurmi wins a splendid success at the end of the second round of the Pirelli Trophy held in adverse weather conditions, putting an end to Niccolò Schirò’s long unbeaten streak, while Sergio Paulet wins out among the Ams.
In the Shell Cup, a peremptory statement by James Weiland and Ingvar Mattsson who takes both the victory among the Ams and the overall one.
The bad weather that hit the Nürburgring track enhanced the sensitivity at the wheel of Luka Nurmi (Formula Racing) who, after the success in Race 2 at Monza, climbs again on the top step of the podium.
The Finn was shrewd, despite his very young age, to take advantage of the duel between Niccolò Schirò (Rossocorsa) and the championship leader, Michelle Gatting (Scuderia Niki – Iron Lynx) to surprise them and fly towards success.
The Dane, after getting rid of the Italian, attempted to undermine Nurmi’s first position, but Jackson’s off-track forced her to complete the remaining minutes of the race under the Safety Car regime.
On the podium, with Nurmi and Gatting, Luca Ludwig (Octane 126) climbed, author of a splendid overtaking on Schirò who gave him third place. Among the Ams, Sergio Paulet (Santogal Madrid – MST Team) wins with merit and, thanks to another difficult race for Christian Brunsborg, significantly shortens the class ranking.
James Weiland (Rossocorsa) wins his second victory of the weekend even if behind a formidable Ingvar Mattsson (Scuderia Autoropa), winner among the Am and first under the checkered flag.
Weiland defended himself with order from the attacks of Ernst Kirchmayr (Baron Motorsport), good at completing the thirty-minute race ahead of rookie Christian Herdt-Wipper (Saggio München).
The race, which ended under the Safety Car regime due to Joakim Olander (Scuderia Autoropa) off the track, saw Willem Van Der Vorm (Scuderia Monte-Carlo) on the podium of the Ams – in addition to the aforementioned Mattsson in the standings, and Alexander Nussbaumer (Gohm Motorsport), first in Race 1.
