MINI ROK VORTEX TROPHY AT BERTUCA
The first two rounds see a direct and tight fight between Ressico and Cepil, both at the lead of the Vortex Trophy. On third lap, Bertuca is first and tries to escape but is soon rejoined by Ressico. The winning overtaking is performed by the Italian Bertuca on the fifth lap, although the leader cannot remain calm until the end, as Ressico, Sztuka and the Israeli Elkim remain threatening behind his shoulders.
Elkim finally performs a great overtaking, taking the place of honor, leaving behind Ressico (then penalized for his front bumper out of seat). The podium is thus completed by Sztuka, able to manage the final attacks of Gold, Cepil and Contecha.The best lap of the race is signed by Indonesian Noor (55".098), tenth at the finish line and author of a great comeback, considering the fact he jumped from the 14th row at the starting grid. As proof that the Vortex Trophy level was high, there is Noor's best lap, better than that of the "only" finalist Protasiewicz (55"118).
