Chris van der Drift won the dash-for-cash Superleague Super Final at Jarama for Olympiacos in dominant style.
The Kiwi did not exactly have to work hard for the win as Tottenham's Craig Dolby outbraked himself going into Turn 1 for the first time, forcing Basel's Max Wissel and Roma's Julian Jousse into the gravel with him.
Van der Drift was the only driver not delayed and with a lead of almost two seconds following the opening lap, victory was inevitable.
Wissel and Jousse managed to rejoin, but Dolby's race was over. The opening lap confusion promoted John Martin's Beijing car to second and Milan's Yelmer Buurman to third, which was where they finished.
