on P 2 - Frijns and again P 5 - Jaminet.
Frijns had a pefect start and moved up to P 2 in the first corner.
From that point on Frijns was attacking the leader every lap. He
drove the overall fastest race lap but still couldn´t find a way
past and finally took another podium finish with a great P 2.
Mathieu Jaminet also drove a strong race with some hard wheel to
wheel racing action and finally finished on P 5.

corner. From that point on Frijns was controlling the race. He drove
a very clean race without any mistakes and finally took his maiden
