Dorian Boccolacci dominates proceedings in the second round of Andros eTrophy action at Isola 2000.
Boccolacci was untouchable throughout the morning’s action, setting the pace in qualifying Super Pole and the race.
First qualifying was the faster of the two sessions, as Boccolacci set a time of 2m22.321s. The pace couldn’t match that of Friday’s action, but was enough to put him on provisional pole after second qualifying. IN Q2, Panis topped the order but was 1.5s slower than Boccolacci’s earlier time.
The Sebastien Loeb Racing driver backed up the performance by going fastest in the Super Pole, securing maximum points from qualifying.
Panis could only manage fourth fastest in the session, dropping him to third behind Nathaneal Berthon by the end of qualifying.
In the race, Panis was immediately on the attack, but couldn’t find a way past Berthon off the line. That allowed Boccolacci to escape up the road.
Berthon and Panis continued to battle for second, simultaneously building a gap back to Yann Ehrlacher in fourth. By the end of the race, Berthon was three seconds behind Boccolacci but more than four seconds ahead of Ehrlacher and comfortably ahead of Panis in third.
Jerome Grosset-Janin passed Christophe Ferrier to take fifth.
A best of fourth in Q2 meant Jean-Baptiste Dubourg didn’t make it through to the Super Final, and was seventh by the time qualifying was complete.
He led the Final from start to finish and was 7.6s ahead of Sylvian Pussier at the chequered flag. Olivier Pernaut and Benoit Treluyer took third and fourth in the race.
