Mikel Azcona has taken a great leap forward with his success at the third race weekend. After two emphatic victories with large winning-margins in Nuremberg, the 21-year-old junior driver climbed from seventh to second in the points standings. He is now Philip Ellis’s strongest pursuer. The Briton, having already taken three victories, continued his podium streak with a second and third place, and now has a 33-point advantage.
Third on the table just one point behind Azcona remains Milan Dontje. The Dutchman, just as he did at the Nürburgring, stood third on the podium at the Norisring, and now he can look forward to his home race in Zandvoort in seven weeks’ time.
