Superleague Round 5 – Nurburgring Race 2 Report

Well, I didn’t see it because someone scheduled it the same time as the European GP, but it looks like Franck came second. The report from Superleague says:

Earlier in race 2, Alvaro Parente claimed victory for FC Porto after holding off a late-race challenge from Bordeaux’s Franck Montagny.

Parente led right from the start after both he and Montagny got past pole-sitter John Martin (Beijing Guoan FC) at the first corner. The Portuguese driver’s lead was up to 2.7 seconds as Montagny pitted for his compulsory stop and the Porto car rejoined from its stop two laps later ahead of the Frenchman, although a stunning lap from Montagny had closed the gap to less than a second.

Parente’s lead stabilised at one second in the second half of the race and even though Montagny narrowed that advantage again in the closing stages, he ultimately settled for the runners-up spot.

Girondins are 12th in the championship now, with 139 points. I do believe that there is more Superleague action next week, which will mean FKM has raced for four weekends in a row. Crazy talk.
