Alex Buncombe followed up his first GT4 European Cup victory in race one at Nogaro with a second win on last Sunday's race, making it a perfect weekend for the young British driver. "That was great ! I had a much better start in this race, followed Eric for the first couple of corners, then managed to pass him at the hairpin after the straight. Then I saw that Gomez had passed Eric, and was worried he might catch me, but I put in some good laps to keep ahead. A fantastic weekend !"



Gomez, in the Solution F Nissan, was given a drive-through penalty for a jump start, and after an entertaining battle with De Doncker, came in second. "It's a shame, I was able to keep up with the leader, but then I got a drive-through. The car was getting better each lap. I had a good fight with Eric - I knew I had to get past him quickly in order to catch up with Buncombe. But I needed a longer race."
Erik De Doncker, with two podiums this weekend despite problems with his car, has kept a healthy lead in the Cup, with an 18-point lead over Buncombe, and 20 points remaining. "What a difficult weekend," De Doncker said. "The mechanics did a fantastic job. We got a power steering unit by train last night, but the car was understeering and oversteering a lot. I did a good start and tried to put on a show for the spectators, but the Nissans were faster than me. I scored the points and limited the damage, but I don't like it when I can't fight for the win. I'll be back for Magny-Cours !"
Lawrence Tomlinson was fourth in the Ginetta G50 - finishing both races on its first competitive weekend, while Fran├žois Kicq was fifth in the second Mustang, and Andre Grammatico was sixth in the BMW Z4.
The final rounds take place in Magny-Cours on October 13th - 14th, in the context of the FFSA Super Series
