Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Junior championship leader Anton De Pasquale topped both practice sessions of the series’ third round taking place at the Nurburgring.

The Australian narrowly beat title rival Janneau Esmeijer in both sessions with the Dutchman recording second place on both occasions.

In session one, Esmeijer got within one tenth of De Pasquale with his final lap, while in the afternoon the Australian managed a last-second lap to dethrone the Provily racer from first overall.

De Pasquale’s teammate Max Defourny was third in the morning, more than six tenths behind the leading duo. Pirosports drivers Larry ten Voorde and Cedric Piro were fourth and fifth respectively.

Simon Mirguet was the driver in third place in session two, while the rest of the top five was made up by Defourny and Provily’s Boris Kolff.
