Konstantin Tereschenko took a lights-to-flag victory in race two at the Circuito de Jerez as returning drivers and pre-season championship favourites filled the EuroFormula Open podium in Spain.
Tereschenko took advantage of his maiden pole position set earlier in the day to lead from the get-go, and the Campos Racing driver beat Yu Kanamaru of Emilio de Villota Motorsport by just over 2.5 seconds at the end of the eighteen-lap race on Sunday.
Yarin Stern took his first podium of the finish in third for Team West-Tec F3, with the top three well clear of the rest of the field.
John Simonyan, himself a returning driver in 2015, was fourth for the MKTG-branded RP Motorsport team, ahead of Vitor Baptista in a sister RP Motorsport car, while race one winner Alessio Rovera inherited sixth in his DAV Racing machine after Igor Walilko was given a post-race ten second penalty after initially finishing sixth, with the Pole dropping to eleventh.
Andres Saravia was seventh in another of the RP Motorsport entries ahead of Tanart Sathienthirakul of Team West-Tec F3, with William Barbosa ninth for BVM Racing and Diego Mencheca tenth for Campos Racing.
Rovera conceded the championship lead to Tereschenko, with the Russian two points ahead of the Italian. The next weekend for the championship is at the French circuit of Paul Ricard in two weeks time.
