Michel belov won his second victory of 2021 European Regional Formula Championship by Alpine season in a processional race around the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valence, while Gregoire Saucy moved closer to securing the title with another podium.
G4 Race‘s Belov, who starts from pole position, retained the lead at the start after taking first place in qualifying on Sunday morning, and although he was followed for much of the race by the winner of race one . Franco Colapinto, he went on to win.
Colapinto resisted an attack from Saucy in the first round to stay second, with the MP Motorsport driver able to stay with Belov in the front while easily keeping the Grand Prize ART driver behind him.
Saucy’s third place, coupled with a sixth place for his closest rival Hadrian david, places the Swiss rider with 78 points ahead of the championship standings with only one hundred points remaining on the table. He only needs twenty-two points from the last four races to clinch the title.
Isack Hadjar took fourth place for R-ace GP, while a quick start from seventh place gave the podium on Saturday David Vidales fifth for Prema Powerteam, ahead of David and his R-ace GP teammate Zane Maloney.
Like Saturday, Maloney made excellent gains from his place on the grid to finish eighth, and he was responsible for one of the few moves on track in the top ten after that as he passed. FA Racing‘s Gabriel Bortoleto for the seventh.
Bortoleto lost momentum and ultimately lost against Van Amersfoort Racing‘s Husband Boya and finally finished in ninth place, while the last point went to ART Grand Prix Gabriele Mini. After the race, the stewards assessed Maloney a one-place penalty for leaving the track and taking the lead, which placed him eighth behind Boya.
Prema’s Dino Beganovic failed to finish after a technical issue first saw him slow down and hit the pits, and although the team got him back on track, he gave up a few laps later to retire .
Less than ten minutes from the finish, the safety car was imposed after a collision between the drivers of MP Motorsport Dilano van’t Hoff and Monolite Racing‘s Jose garfias, but even after the track was cleared and the race resumed, there was no further movement in the top ten as overtaking proved difficult around the Valencia track.
