David Garza
The second race on the Spanish Jerez track goes to the Mexican rookie David Garza who, with Lola B02/50 of the Sighinolfi Autoracing, wins ahead of Adam Khan (TP Formula) and Fabio Beretta (Bull Racing) getting his first win F.3000.

At the start Ramon Zapata (Emmebi Motorsport), started from the first row, is very slow and Garza and Beretta get the lead. The Mexican manages to take a good pace, while behind him Adam Khan, started from the fourth row, begins a great come back: after a good battle with Fabrizio Crestani (GP Racing), the Anglo Pakistan manages to overtake him at the third lap thus getting the fourth place behind the Spanish Bruno Mendez (Bull Racing). At the tenth lap, due to a mistake by the Spanish, he manages to get the third position, behind the leader David Garza and Fabio Beretta. Two laps to the end the TP Formula driver overtakes also Beretta thus ending second, as in race 1. Thanks to this result Khan is now third in the overall standings. 

Come back race also for the Italian Fabio Onidi with the second GP: forced to start on the last row already in the first laps he recovers passing third on the third lap. At the 14th lap Onidi gets fifth and finishes in this position thus recovering two points to the new championship leader Nicolas Prost.

The next F.3000 event is on the 1-2 November weekend on the Barcelona track.

DAVID GARZA (SIGHINOLFI AUTORACING)
“I’m very happy for this first F.3000 win. For a while I hadn’t had this satisfaction and for this reason I hope to continue like that. It’s a dream come true.”

ADAM KHAN (TP FORMULA)
“I’m satisfied for this second place, after the one in Race 1 yesterday. It was difficult to overtake in the first laps, because I had to defend from Crestani’s attacks. In the final laps I could pass also Beretta.”

FABIO BERETTA (BULL RACING)
“It was very difficult to keep Khan behind and it’s a pity to lose the second position in the final laps. I’m happy for the podium anyway.”
