Harrison Scott secured his second victory in three races as he led from start to finish in race two of the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series event at the Red Bull Ring on Sunday.
The British racer held off the challenge of Max Defourny, who after finding his way passed race one nemesis Lando Norris closed the gap to Scott at the front, but the AVF racer held on until the chequered flag to win by 0.456 seconds.
Defourny resumed his battle with Norris from race one, but after being unable to pass and stay ahead of the Briton on Saturday, he was able to make a move stick this time around, but the R-ace GP driver was forced to settle for his second runners-up spot of the weekend.
Norris fell back from the battle for the lead to finish third, with the Josef Kaufmann Racing driver being forced instead to battle Dorian Boccolacci for the final podium position, with the Tech 1 Racing driver making one unsuccessful move on the Briton before finishing just 0.433 seconds adrift at the end.
Henrique Chaves secured his best result of the season for AVF in fifth after making his way passed Will Palmer of R-ace GP on lap thirteen, with the Briton falling away from running fourth early in the race to ending down in sixth.
Jehan Daruvala was seventh for Josef Kaufmann Racing ahead of Fortec Motorsports’ Austrian driver Ferdinand Habsburg, who could not replicate his podium finish from Saturday, while Alexey Korneev took ninth for JD Motorsport.
Sacha Fenestraz secured the final point on offer in tenth after a good battle with his Tech 1 Racing team-mates Hugo de Sadeleer and Gabriel Aubry, who finished eleventh and twelfth respectively.
