NYKJÆR DOMINATES BOTH THE SUPER 2000 RACES

Michel Nykjær made an impressive comeback to the FIA European Touring Car Cup after winning twice in 2007 and 2008. The Danish racer claimed two dominant victories today at the Austrian Salzburgring. At the wheel of the very same SEAT Leon TDI he drives in the WTCC, Nykjær'space was so quick that he annihilated Honda drivers James Thompson and Tomas Engstrom.

With two second places, Thompson was able to stretch his S2000 lead to 10 points ahead of Engstrom. With only 20 to be awarded in the season's finale, this equates to a serious claim on winning the FIA Cup for the second year.

In the S1600 class German drivers Carsten Seifert and Jens Lohnig took one victory apiece and are now split by only four points in the standings. Serbian rookie Vojislav Lekic won both races in the Super Production class on his maiden appearance. The European Touring Car Cup will resume on October 17th at Franciacorta, Italy, for rounds 5 and 6 that will conclude the season.
