Benjamin Berta defended the lead and won the second race in Brno

The second Sunday race of the final event of this season belonged to single-seaters. The wonderful fight between Benjamin Berta and Sandro Zeller ended up being successful for the Hungarian competitor Berta.

Berta started from pole-position, but after the red lights went off, the winner of yesterday’s race Sandro Zeller immediately took the lead. However, Berta didn’t give up and stayed close behind Zeller while the rest of the field faded into the background.

Local driver Vladimír Netušil started from the last place in the latest Formula 3 after missing the qualifying, but from the first kilometres he worked his way to the upper positions. He stuck up behind 16-year-old Japanese Formula Renault Juju Noda and it took him several laps to get in front of her.

On the fifth lap, Berta overtook Zeller to take the lead in the race. At first it looked like the fight was decided. Berta gained a slight advantage, which he maintained in the following laps. But as the end of the race approached, Zeller closed in on his rival again and in the last five minutes a battle began. Who would cross the finish line first? Although Berta and Zeller started in different cars and de facto both held first place in their category, they fought really hard.

Zeller tried to find a gap until the last lap, but Berta defended the lead and crossed the chequered flag in first place. He became the winner of the D2-E category ahead of János Magyar and Vladimír Netušil, who finished sixth and seventh overall.

The winner of the F3 category was Zeller ahead of Benjamin Dam and Nikolas Szabó. In the Formula Renault category, Juju Noda triumphed again ahead of Norbert Groer and Robert Siska. Zénó Kovács won in Formula 4.
