Alessandro Balzan extended his newly-acquired Ferrari Challenge points lead with another emphatic victory in the second race at the Hungaroring.
Having won the first race by a huge 14 seconds, the Ferrari Moscow driver's form was almost as devastating in race two, the final margin a handy 9.9s. It was Balzan's fourth race win in a row, following on from his double victory in Mugello last month.
Balzan's team-mate Bjorn Grossman took another very lonely second place, the German ending the weekend nine points behind the leader. Stefano Gai was once again third, ahead of Alexandr Skryabin, replicating the Ferrari Moscow 1-2-3-4 from the first race.
Niki Cadei (Motor Piacenza) fell further behind the points leaders with sixth place. After spending most of the first race crammed behind Skryabin, this time it was Andrii Kruglyk (Ferrari Ukrania) who got the better of the Italian, beating him to fifth place by six tenths.
After replacing Daniel Zelinksy in the Ferrari Praha entry, Michael Vorba finished seventh ahead of Alexander Martin (Stratstone Ferrari), Max Blancardi (Motor Malucelli) and Sergey Zlobin (Ferrari Moscow).
Alexey Basov ensured that Ferrari Moscow were winners in both classes with an easy Coppa Shell win from Giacomo Stratta (Forza Service) and Fernando Baiz (Rossocorsa).
