The ex-F1 driver had excelled in the first event at the International Superstars Series to finish second after long tussling for the win. However, halfway through Race 2, the Englishman was caught up in an accident between two rival cars and forced out.
Making up for it was the Swiss squad’s other Quattroporte Evo, driven by Mauro Cesari. Cesari battled like a lion, climbing ten positions at the start. He held his own in two close fights and finished sixth.
The race lined up with the top eight drivers in a reversed Race 1 finishing order. This meant that Herbert started from eighth, chasing Ananda Mikola, Francesco Sini, Max Pigoli, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Andrea Larini and Stefano Gabellini. Meanwhile, Cesari started quickly and had already gained a spot.
Things were soon hotting up between Mikola and Sini for the lead and Pigoli and Larini for third. In behind the leading four were Liuzzi, Gabellini and Herbert. Cesari had climbed another position by overtaking Johan Kristoffersson to move into a slot just off his team mate.
