Andrea Bertolini won the second International Superstars Series race at Donington Park in his Swiss Team Maserati Quattroporte to complete a double victory at the British track.
Just like in Race 1, Bertolini got the jump on polesitter Alberto Cerqui (Team BMW Italia) at the start. From here Bertolini controlled the race to win by 3.8 seconds.
Luigi Ferrara and Johnny Herbert also got the better of Cerqui at the start, but the latter was tipped into a spin on the exit of Redgate by the BMW driver, which dropped the Brit down the field.
Ferrara remained in second place for CAAL Racing, with Alessandro Pier Guidi completing the podium in the second Maserati, an impressive result on his debut weekend in the championship.
Max Pigoli was fourth for Romeo Ferraris, ahead of Christian Montanari (RGA BMW) who recovered from being spun around by Thomas Biagi on the opening lap while in fifth. Herbert too made a strong recovery from his spin to finish sixth.
Cerqui made it home in seventh, ahead of Fabrizio Armetta and Biagi. The third factory BMW of Stefano Gabellini completed the top ten.
Ferrara has taken the championship lead, with Bertolini second four points behind. Biagi has slipped to third following a difficult weekend, 11 points off Ferrara. The next round takes place at Misano on 10th July.
