Florian Janits wins the last race of the season, first podium finish for Ben Kolff

19/10/14 - Florian Janits (Lehner Racing School) had the right speed on the wet track of the circuit of Zandvoort and proved it by finishing on the highest step of the podium. He also finished third in the Championship. Second place in race 3 was for Ralf Aron of the Scuderia Nordica team and with this result he took second place in the Championship. Third and for the first time on the podium was Ben Kolff of the Provily Racing Team.

The race started under safety car due to the wet track conditions. Janits came from third and passed teammate Habsburg, to then start moving in on de Pasquale.

 

Ralf Aron and Boris Kolff both enjoyed the wet track conditions and moved up in the second part of the race, passing de Pasquale. Kolff dropped back to sixth on the last lap but found his way back to third to claim his maiden podium finish.

 

Max Defourny finished fourth, while newcomer Laurents Hörr finished fifth, he only got the car from the factory this week and raced for the first time on rain tyres as well. Nico Otto finished sixth, Anton de Paquale seventh, followed by Oliver Söderström, Ferdinand Habsburg and Roy Geerts. Geerts was the only one on slicks which did not bring him anything as the track did not dry as quickly as he would have liked.

 

1 Florian Janits (Lechner Racing School): “I am good in the wet so I was really looking forward to this race. I drove a perfect consistent race. I am very happy.”

 

2 Ralf Aron (Scuderia Nordica): “I did not start the race very well, and just could not find the right pace. But in the second part of the race everything came together and I could move forward. Very happy to be on the podium again.”

 

3 Boris Kolff (Provily Racing Team): “I started really good and found my race pace quickly and joined the leaders quickly. Great to finish the year on the podium. The team was great, they helped me and taught me a lot this year. I congratulate Anton on winning the championship.”
