Larry ten Voorde was delighted with his sixth podium result. The 21-year-old Project 1 driver took up the race from the seventh grid spot and worked his way up to fourth. In the final lap, he then overtook Dylan Pereira (L/Lechner Racing). “Saturday didn’t really come together for me, so I’m particularly pleased about my podium result at the last race of the season. During the interruption I stayed focussed and my overtaking manoeuvre in the last lap was the reward for this,” stated ten Voorde. Pereira had reason to celebrate after clinching fourth place on the 4.574-kilometre racetrack: With 224 points to his credit, the 21-year-old secured the title in the rookie class.
