International Superstars Series returnee Luca Rangoni won the second race of the day at Misano.
The Roma Racing Team Mercedes driver moved into second place at the rolling start past Thomas Biagi and behind polesitter Alberto Cerqui. Biagi was also passed by Luigi Ferrara, repeating his poor start from the first race.
Rangoni passed Cerqui for the lead on lap two, and held onto the lead until the checkered flag, despite his lead being cancelled by a mid-race safety car due to oil on the circuit from Riccardo Bossi's Audi.
Max Pigoli attempted to take third place from Ferrara, but pushed his fellow Mercedes wide and off the circuit. This dropped both down the order, with Andrea Bertolini assuming third place.
Bertolini and Biagi passed Cerqui for second and third places respectively, but then made contact as Biagi tried to pass the Maserati. This sent both cars spinning and dropped them down the order. Johnny Herbert took advantage of the incident to move into second place, as Ferrara and Cerqui had to take a wide line to avoid the two spinning cars.
Ferrara crossed the line in third behind Herbert but was handed a 0.5 second penalty for contact with Cerqui on the final lap. This promoted Cerqui to third with Ferrara fourth. Stefano Gabellini followed the duo across the line in fifth, ahead of Alessandro Pier Guidi in his Maserati.
Riccardo Romagnoli and Andrea Dromedari finished seventh and eighth, with Mauro Cesari and Alex De Giacomi completing the top ten.
Ferrara has extended his championship lead to 19 points, with Cerqui now second. Bertolini has slipped to third, 23 points off the lead with Biagi a further point behind.
The next round of the season takes place at Spa-Francorchamps on 7th August.
