Renault Sport Trophy: itís getting tighter at the top!

20.07.2016: On Friday, Markus Palttala (Team Marc VDS EG 0,0) dominated practice.




On Friday, Markus Palttala (Team Marc VDS EG 0,0) dominated practice. His partner Fabian Schiller (Team Marc VDS EG 0,0) clinched pole position in AM, but the Finn was unable to get past Pieter Schothorst (Equipe Verschuur) in the PRO category.
 

The Dutchman bagged the full quota of points in the intermediary classification in the Endurance race before the window opened for driver changes, during which himself and his team-mate Jeroen Schothorst lost out big time.


Palttala-Schiller emerged in the lead and won the race from Roy Geerts - Miguel Ramos (Equipe Verschuur) and Tanart Sathienthirakul - Fran Rueda (Team Marc VDS EG 0,0).
 

On Sunday, Schiller, with 80 kilos of ballast, was beaten by his team-mate Fran Rueda putting an end on his invincibility in AM. Andres Mendez (Oregon Team) finished on the third step of the podium.


In PRO, there was another no-holds-barred duel between Pieter Schothorst and Palttala. The former again came out on top relaunching the battle for victory in the overall classification still led by Kevin Korjus (R-ace GP).
