Teretonga TRS: Piquet controls reverse-grid race
Pedro Piquet made the most of reverse-grid pole position to pick up his first single-seater victory outside of Brazil in the second race of Toyota Racing Series' Teretonga round.
Piquet, who took pole by finishing fourth in Race 1, was challenged by Antoni Ptak at the start - but reclaimed the lead as the Polish driver dropped out of contention on the opening lap.
For the remaining 14 laps, the Brazilian's main worry was teammate Lando Norris, but despite the Briton staying within a second of Piquet at all times, the status quo was maintained at the chequered flag.
In taking victory, Piquet racked up his M2 team's fourth consecutive win in the 2016 season - and the team also celebrated a 1-2-3, with Artem Markelov passing Victory's Brendon Leitch for the final podium spot.
Race 1 winner Jehan Daruvala drove to a straightforward fifth, while Guan Yu Zhou made it five M2 cars in the top six.
Nicolas Dapero, Ferdinand Habsburg, Will Owen and James Munro made up the top 10.
