Roy Nissany moved himself well back into championship contention after taking his third victory of the Formula V8 3.5 Series season in the opening race at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza on Saturday.

The Israeli driver converted his pole position into the victory, and although he took another pole position on Sunday, the Lotus driver could only add a sixth place finish, but the combination of results meant he moved to within 28 points of championship leader Tom Dillmann with four races of the season remaining.

The only time Nissany was headed was heading into the first turn when Pietro Fittipaldi made a better start, but when the Fortec Motorsports driver made a mess of turn one, Nissany was able to reclaim the lead and eventually won by a 12.422 second margin.

“Since this morning we have shown we’ve been able to finalize the potential we had on Friday,” said Nissany on “After the pole we just had to stay focused and go forward.

“The start was a bit tricky for all of us but I kept managing the gap until the chequered flag. I’m really happy about this result”.

Unfortunately for Nissany he was unable to match his performance on Sunday despite starting on pole position. The Israeli was unable to get going on the formation lap, and was forced to start from the pit lane. He fought his way back to sixth, but could do no better.
