Costa seals the deal with home win
Starting the day nine points off the Eurocup Megane Trophy championship lead, Albert Costa (Oregon Team) knew he needed nothing less than a win in Race 2 if he was going to claim the 2012 crown. Even then the Spaniard was going to need help from his team-mates to limit Bas Schothorst’s (TDS Team) points haul from the race. Yet that is exactly how things panned out for the Catalan driver, who crossed the line first for the seventh time this season, taking victory from Kevin Gilardoni (Oregon Team) and Niccolo Nalio (Oregon Team), with his Dutch foe only fourth. A champion in his first year in the category, Albert Costa also helped Oregon Team secure their second team title.
