Tereschenko wins to keep title hopes alive

1 Mins read

Konstantin Tereschenko secured his fifth victory of the EuroFormula Open season in race one at the Circuit de Catalunya to keep his chances of winning the championship alive.

The Campos Racing driver led from lights out to the chequered flag from pole position to move within twenty-one points of championship leader Vitor Baptista, who finished third.

Tereschenko held off the challenge of Emilio de Villota Motorsport’s Yu Kanamaru at the start, and was never given a serious challenge, even if his Japanese rival stole the point for fastest lap away from him on the penultimate lap of the race.

RP Motorsport’s Baptista jumped into third position at the start, moving ahead of row two starters Diego Menchaca and Daniel Juncadella, but had no answer to the pace of the front two, finishing 7.885s back.

Juncadella secured fourth for Emilio de Villota Motorsport ahead of Campos Racing’s Menchaca, who claimed rookie honours, while Leonardo Pulcini secured sixth for DAV Racing.

Much like in qualifying, the two Team West-Tec F3 entrants Yarin Stern and Tanart Sathienthirakul were inseparable, finishing seventh and eighth, with Damiano Fioravanti of RP Motorsport and Ferdinand Habsburg from the Drivex School team completing the top ten.

With Juncadella, Habsburg and twelfth place finisher Sam MacLeod of Team West-Tec F3 all ineligible for points as guest drivers, both Igor Walilko and Andres Saravia of RP Motorsport scored points despite finishing eleventh and thirteenth respectively.
