Victory for the Team LMV CL Brakes driver takes him to the top of the championship standings.

For the second day in succession Eric Tremoulet (Vic’ Team) finished right behind the Romanian, while Josh Files (Team Pyro) took third.

On a keenly contested opening lap Milan shot into the lead ahead of Tremoulet, while Salvatore Arcarese climbed back up to third after a slow getaway and then saw Files dive past him, with Christian Ricciarini and Xavier Fouineau (Team LMV CL Brakes) also chasing hard.

Milan quickly stretched his lead over Tremoulet, who put plenty of distance between himself and the rest of the 38-driver field. With so many cars on the track, there was no shortage of slipstreaming and overtaking. One man to benefit was Massimiliano Pedala (Composit Motorsport), who climbed from the back of the grid and into the points only to be given a time penalty for leaving the track, with Christian Ricciarini picking up a drive-through for the same reason.

After fending off a late challenge from Tremoulet, Milan crossed the line first.

The victorious Milan said: “I’m happy with the win. I was fortunate enough to miss all the incidents at the start. I wasn’t that confident but I had a little cushion at the front. I played it a bit too safe after that and Eric had me worried. I was glad when it was over.”
