Race 2 was majestic. After the restart of the safety car, both Joss and Bruno were able to jump to P4 and P5. Which meant we were driving P2-P5. Masson was leading the race but got a drive-through penalty, that resulted in the lead for Mari and he raced it to the win with Sebastian O. and Joss following him on the podium.
