In round two the Portuguese Antonio Felix da Costa from the Motopark Academy team crossed the finish line in first place for the third consecutive time at a Sunday race. In the standings Mortara (87 points) is ranking in front of Wittmann with a 24-point advantage. Two race weekends before the end of the season it is clear that the new 2010 champion will definitely be a driver from the Volkswagen Signature team.
