Budapest (H), 5 June 2011 – Norbert Kiss added Race 2 to his haul from Budapest. The Hungarian topped each session from free practice on at the Hungaroring for the third round of the Trofeo Maserati GranTurismo MC. Kiss is competing in the Team classification and has been head and shoulders above the others this weekend. In Race 1 he beat off Cedric Sbirrazzuoli from AF Corse and Janos Vida, his fellow Hungarian from Auto 2 magazine, racing as a guest.

 

The Team podium was rounded off by Emanuele Smurra, Swiss Team (11th overall). Over in the Trofeo, Vida edged out Nicolò Piancastelli and Sabino De Castro, in the Radio Monte Carlo car. As the two journalists will not be picking up podium points, these go to Piancastelli (the category winner), David Baldi and Gaetano Ardagna. In the second race, Kiss cruised away after a series of quick laps. Behind him Phil Bastiaans (competing in the Team series) made up for the morning race when he had to pull out with a puncture. Third across the line was Romagna-based driver Piancastelli who collected another category victory and moves into second spot overall. In doing so he made up precious points on leader David Baldi, fifth across the line behind Venezuelan Ardagna.
