THOMPSON AND LOHNIG FINISH ON TOP IN BRAGA

Reigning FIA European Super 2000 Cup champion James Thompson emerged on top after 2010 opening event in Braga today. At the wheel of his Hartmann Racing Honda Accord, the Briton won the first race and grabbed a podium result in the second one to take a slim lead in the series classification.

Thompson had to work hard to defend himself from BMW drivers Cesar Campanico - who scored a dominant victory in Race 2 - and Kristian Poulsen.

Competition was close on the Portuguese racetrack, with all the drivers offering a number of exciting fights, even for the midfield positions. Jens Lohnig from Germany won both the Super 1600 races in his ATM Racing Ford Fiesta, beating the reigning champion Carsten Seifert twice. The Nations' Cup was presented to Great Britain thanks to Thompson's results.

The European Touring Car Cup will resume on July 25th at the Austrian Salzburgring for rounds 3 and 4.
