Winner Chris van der Drift

Formula Master's first race of the season saw J.D. Motorsport's Chris van der Drift claim the win at the Valencia circuit in Spain, after leading the race from start to finish.

Following a clean start, the New-Zealand born Dutchman pulled away over the 19-lap race with former team-mate and 2008 Trident Racing driver Kasper Andersen close behind.

Andersen maintained position, finishing the race in second, with Iris Project's Michael Ammermuller claiming third place and the final step on the Formula Master podium.

"The start is the most important thing. You have to pull away cleanly and make sure no-one is too close behind you. Kasper wasn't too near and I was able to build a gap between the two of us throughout the race."
