Jaxon Evans has clinched 3rd place after a defensive drive unfortunately losing 2nd place to championship rival Larry ten Voorde.
It was an even start for Jaxon Evans alongside polesitter Marvin Klein but unfortunately the kiwi lost P2 to Larry ten Voorde after a slight love tap from behind into turn one.
Evans was boxed in and had no choice after an unlucky exit out of turn 2 and 3 and the Dutch driver inched past Evans into second place.
A yellow flag came out after two cars spun leaving turn 4 due to the track being rather green after some morning showers in Hungary.
The safety car was released and went returned to the pits on lap 6/15 meaning 10 laps to go!
Another yellow on turn one came as soon as the safety car entered the pit lane but soon remained green after a slight lock-up incident from Kohler
as well as a spin involving the Boccolacci and Pereira.
As the race continued Latorre challenged Evans on lap 10 just before the middle sector but Evans successfully defended and held 3rd place.
The French driver, frustrated to be stuck behind for so long, began to flash his lights at the start of lap 11 to try and intimidate Evans. Later in the lap Evans locked up slightly, showing signs of possible tyre wear.
Behind Latorre BWT’s young Turkish driver Aycanhan Güven was pressuring the French driver all the way through lap 12 but couldn’t find the right gap.
A yellow caution at the beginning of lap 13 as Roar Linland spun after diving into an optimistic challenge. The Norwegian driver quickly recovered and continued.
The race continued until the chequered flag as Marvin Klein claimed a dominant victory followed by championship leader Larry ten Voorde and finally the young Kiwi Jaxon Evans claimed another great podium coming home 3rd.
This was the final race before the summer break. There will be four more rounds continuing at Spa Francochamps, Zandvoort and then two final rounds at Monza.
