Ehrlacher wins dramatic Isola race three

Yann Ehrlacher emerged victorious from a dramatic final race of the weekend at Isola.

The M Racing driver converted pole position into the win, but not before two drivers were taken out while battling for position.

Jean-Baptiste Dubourg started second and was running close to the back of Ehrlacher, with Aurelien Panis not far behind. While trying to close the gap to Ehrlacher further, Dubourg span on the second lap. Most of the field were able to avoid, but Dorian Boccolacci collided with Dubourg’s stationary car, leaving both with significant damage. Dubourg suffered damage to his front right and was unable to continue, while Boccolacci finished the lap before retiring.

The incident promoted Panis into second, but Ehrlacher now had a sizable gap at the front of the order. Panis began to close that gap, but soon came under pressure from Nathanael Berthon and the gap grew again.

By the chequered flag, Ehrlacher was a comfortable 10s ahead of the rest of the field to take his second win of the season.

Behind him, Panis held onto second, ahead of Berthon and Pierre-Louis Loubet. Nico Prost was the final finisher.

There was just as much drama in the Final, where Christophe Ferrier emerged on top. Ferrier got a good start while Jeremy Sarhy battled to keep Nicolas Baert behind him. A wide moment for Sarhy allowed Baert to come through. Baert closed onto the back of Ferrier and was pushing to find a way past. He finished just a second behind Ferrier, while Sarhy dropped back to a distant third.
