Pedro Piquet scored his first?Toyota Racing Series victory in the second race at Teretonga, having converted his pole into a victory.

Although the Brazilian?temporarily lost his lead to Antoni Ptak?at?the start, he?was back ahead after the Pole’s car slowed down with a mechanical problem.

Lando Norris emerged as Piquet’s closest challenger as the Briton followed the leader by less then a second?for the most of the race but ultimately failing to make a move.

The podium, locked out by M2, was completed by Artem Markelov, having found a way past Brendon Leitch during the first couple of laps.

Yesterday’s winner Jehan Daruvala and Chinese Guan Yu Zhou brought further two M2 cars into the top six, while Nicolas Dapero kept Ferdinand Habsburg at bay to secure seventh.

The top ten was completed by Giles duo?Will Owen and James Munro.
