Europe Race 1



Morning rain meant that wet race was declared before the start, leaving most crews facing a choice of whether to use slicks or wet tyres. The majority of the field opted for wets but polesitter Spinelli began the race on slicks and immediately paid the price. The #61 Huracán dropped down the order, running as low as 28th as Bonduel took the early lead from the Pro-Am runners of Karol Basz (Micanek Motorsport) and Lewis Williamson (Oregon Team).



Williamson soon made it ahead of Basz for the Pro-Am lead and second overall, but the Oregon Team driver was not content on staying there as he took chunks of time out of Bonduel out in front. Before long, Williamson was all over the back of Bonduel and made a decisive lunge at turn eight to seize the lead on the seventh lap. Such was the pace of the #27 car, Williamson had built a three-second margin and held the lead until the pit-stops.



Bonduel, who had been struggling with high tyre pressures in the opening stint, changed to slicks at the pit-stops and emerged back in the lead after getting past Bromek Formanek, while the Target Racing car of Milan Teekens disputed third with the Iron Dames machine of Doriane Pin.



The #83 of Pin moved up to second ahead of Teekens after the stops but came under pressure from Teekens late in the race. Teekens got by Pin in the closing laps and finished second after a spin from Formanek two laps from the finish, while Pin also spun on the final lap to end up fifth overall.



Profiting from Formanek’s spin, Ciglia and Williamson finished third overall and first in Pro-Am, clinching the title a race early. Benoît Semoulin and François Semoulin won in the Lamborghini Cup class ahead of Van der Horst and Hans Fabri, with Lewandowski taking the Am victory.






Europe Race 2




Having created Super Trofeo history on Friday by becoming the first female driver to record an outright pole position in the one-make championship, Pin led off the rolling start from Teekens and Leipert Motorsport’s Brendon Leitch. Before the end of the first lap, the safety car was deployed following a heavy crash at turn five as the Rexal FFF Racing Team cars of Luciano Privitelio and Marc Rostan made contact. Both cars were out of the race immediately with front-end damage, while the Micanek Motorsport car of Kurt Wagner was also beached in the gravel trap.




Following a 10-minute safety car period, Pin maintained her lead from Leitch, who overtook Teekens on the opening lap, with VS Racing’s Jean-Luc D’Auria fourth. From sixth on the grid, Weering slipped back a couple of positions at the start and lost more time after tagging the rear of Stéphane Lemeret into a spin at turn 11, earning a 10-second post-race time penalty.



Pin increased her margin in the lead to over three seconds by the time the pit window opened, and the French driver waited until the last possible moment to make her stop and swap with Gatting. Leitch did the same, switching over to his team-mate Gerhard Watzinger, while Spinelli took over from Weering at the very start of the window. This strategy paid off handsomely as the Bonaldi Motorsport driver put in a series of fastest laps to move into the lead of the race after Gatting took over the #83.



Spinelli then built a staggering 20-second lead during his stint to comfortably take the victory despite the penalty. Gatting and Pin finished a superb second, with Tribaudini and D’Auria third. Van der Horst finished second in LB Cup to secure the title, his fourth overall and first since 2019, while Andrzej Lewandowski claimed the Am crown with victory. A late spin for Target Racing’s Milan Petelet allowed Basz and Formanek to avenge their race one disappointment and claim the Pro-Am victory.



Pro-Am champion Lewis Williamson (#27 Oregon Team) said
: “This week we kind of struggled for pace in the dry so we thought we’d try a few different things and for it to be wet, it was good to get it done even though our car hasn’t worked so well in cooler conditions this year. We were hopeful of winning the title in Barcelona, but we had our worst weekend of the year, so really happy to win it with a race to spare, Massimo has done a great job in his first season with a Pro driver too.”



Team-mate Massimo Ciglia (#27 Oregon Team) added
: “I am really happy to have won the title together with Lewis, and by winning the first race. It was a difficult race and one of the most complicated of the entire year, with the wet track that dried out. The team did a great job and everything went perfectly today.”



Am champion, Andrzej Lewandowski (#60 VS Racing) said:
“I am very happy with the title, my second Am win and fourth in Super Trofeo, it’s really a big pleasure to do it this year because the level of competition is so high. Today was quite easy I must say as I was controlling the situation the whole time.”



Lamborghini Cup champion Gerard van der Horst added:
“It’s great to win the title, four years after the last one and so much has happened during this time. With the COVID-19 and then my bad crash in Barcelona, I couldn’t drive so much these past years, so I am really happy with my comeback. It was a hard race this morning, but I made it through.”
