Schothorst continues perfect season

TDS Racing's Bas Schothorst made it four wins from four races in a wet race two of the Renault Eurocup Mégane Trophy at Spa.


Oregon Team duo Niccolo Nalio and Albert Costa were second and third respectively. Schothorst now has a 49-point advantage over Nalio in the championship.

As he was for race one, Nalio was on pole with Costa starting in second. Schothorst passed Costa early on and the pair then fought for second amid the spray thrown up by the leader’s car.

Nalio was cruising at the front, but the round of pitstops put Schothorst in the lead and he went on to complete yet another win after his triumphs at Motorland Aragon.

“Everything’s going well at the moment,” he said. “The track conditions were very tricky at the start, so we had to be careful. I caught up with Niccolo well, but it wasn’t possible to launch an attack because I couldn’t see anything behind him.

“Yesterday I nearly lost the race in the pits, but today that’s where I won it, as I came out in first position. I’d like to say thanks to my team – what we’re achieving at the moment is incredible.”

Nalio said: “With two pole positions, I thought I’d win at least one race this weekend.

“Yesterday I retired before the race had even started. Today I started the race well, but I could feel that my car was becoming less and less effective. We’ll have to be content with second place.”
