Provily’s Janneau Esmeijer took his second victory of the season in race two of the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC round at Spa-Francorchamps.

Starting from pole, the 17-year-old Dutchman kept the lead ahead of Anton De Pasquale off the line. The two of them ran in a one-two formation and were both untroubled until the checkered flag, just like in yesterday’s race.

A close battle between Max Defourny and Marcel Lenerz for third ended in a penultimate lap spin for Lenerz out of the Bus Stop chicane and a maiden podium for the Belgian karting graduate Defourny.

Lenerz had to settle for fifth, having also lost a position to Oliver Soderstrom due to his mistake.

Ferdinand Habsburg took sixth, closely followed by Estonian Ralf Aron, yesterday’s podium finisher Paul Blomqvist, Belgian Simon Mirguet and German Cedric Piro.

FR1.6 Nordic points leader Joonas Lappalainen missed the action due to a wrist injury sustained in a crash in Saturday’s race one.
