Timmy Hansen outclasses title rivals for round six win

Timmy Hansen carried his dominant form from qualifying through to the round six final to claim his second clean sweep of the season.

The Swede led home fellow title contenders Kevin Hansen and Topi Heikkinen as the three put on a masterful display at the front in the seven-lap main event.

It was Heikkinen who arguably made the best start of the six-car field, but a concertina into the first corner shuffled Timmy Hansen to the fore with Kevin Hansen defending from Heikkinen.

From there Timmy Hansen wasn’t troubled for the victory, and crossed the line 1.2 seconds ahead of points leader Kevin Hansen, with Heikkinen taking third and the trio split from the rest of the field.

Craig Breen claimed fourth after an entertaining battle with girlfriend Tamara Molinaro and ‚CsuCsu‘. Molinaro, racing in her third final this season passed Breen on the second lap of the race, but was later repassed by the World Rally regular a lap later.

Breen then found his way by ‚CsuCsu‘ on lap four and began to pull away. Molinaro and ‚CsuCsu‘ meanwhile continued to fight until the chequered flag, with the Hungarian prevailing.

After a podium finish yesterday, Andrew Jordan narrowly missed out on a final berth after  close fight with ‚CsuCsu‘ and Ivan Ares in the semis, while Ronny C’Rock, and Oliver Webb also fell at the semi-final stage after being passed by Molinaro on the opening lap of that race.

Kevin Hansen now leaves Portugal with a 10-point lead over Timmy Hansen, while Heikkinen slips down to third, ahead of Ronny C’Rock.

Molinaro’s strong end to an otherwise tricky weekend rockets her up to fifth, in the midst of a tight fight with ‚CsuCsu‘, Jerome Grosset-Janin, and Jordan. Breen and Webb, who haven’t competed full-time this season, round out the top-10 in points with the series now at its halfway point.
