Another Norwegian victory at Spa

Dennis Olsen started for second consecutive day from Pole Position on Spa Francorchamps, but today it was with Nick Yelloly in second, followed by Michael Ammermüller.

There were a lot more action in the race today than yesterday’s, which the spectators around the track certainly enjoyed.

Glauco Solieri got unfortunately technical problems already at the start and couldn’t get the car to move. It led to a Safety Car, since the car had to be removed from the track.

When the race got restarted, Olsen and Yelloly quickly distanced themselves from Ammermüller, who however used the good slipstream up Kemmel Straight to his advantage.

On the fourth lap, Dan Cammish got a spin when Igor Walilko wouldn’t let him through. The race leaders chose to give Walilko a drive through penalty, since the move he did on Cammish was harsh.

Al Faisal Al Zubair and Sean Hudspeth had a contact in the middle of Eau Rouge, which sent Hudspeth out on a wild spin. Luckily he didn’t hit anyone and could continue the race.

After seven laps there was a big collision between Egidio Perfetti and Roar Lindland. It sent the Safety Car out right away, because Lindland’s cooling element was spread all over the track. The two drivers came in contact when Perfetti tried to overtake Lindland, but the two collided and hit the armco with high speed. Luckily both drivers could come out of the cars without any problems.

When the race continued, there were only two laps left.

Mattia Drudi did a mistake while he was on fifth position, costing him any chance to score point.

Michael Ammermüller squeezed himself through Nick Yelloly, who also lost a place to Dylan Pereira.

On the very last lap, Gianmarco Quaresmini drove wide and when he tried to get the car back on the track, he shot across and took other drivers with him. After the smoke cleared we could see that Igor Walilko, Daniele Di Amato and Philip Morin were among the ones that got involved.

Dennis Olsen took his second victory of the weekend, in front of the championship leaders Michael Ammermüller and Dylan Pereira.

Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will be back on the track again next weekend, with a single round at Monza.
