Artem Petrov and Felipe Drugovich finish second and third. Leonardo Lorandi dominates the Rookies and Sophia Floersch is first in the Women’s Trophy Vallelunga (Rome) 25/06/2017 – As in Race 1, clear blue skies and hot weather for Race 2. A great start from pole position by the New Zealander Marcus Armstrong allowed him to control the race from the first until the last lap. Behind him, the Russian Artem Petrov (DR Formula), did well to recover the positions he lost at the start just a few laps from the end, including a great pass on the Brazilian Felipe Drugovich (Van Amersfort Racing), who was ultimately third. Immense bad luck for Dutch driver Job Van Uitert (Jenzer Motorsport) – who arrived at Vallelunga second in the championship – who had a racing incident with the German Lirim Zendeli (BWT Mucke Motorsport) which caused the introduction of the Safety Car to the circuit.
- In fourth position was the Italian Aldo Festante (DR Formula), who resisted the pressure of the Venezuelan Sebastian Fernandez (Bhaitech), who finished fifth ahead of his team mate, the Italian Lorenzo Colombo. Seventh position for the German Sophia Floersch (BWT Mucke Motorsport), followed by the Guatemalan Ian Rodriguez (DRZ Benelli), the Indian Kush Maini (Jenzer Motorsport) and the Italian Leonardo Lorandi (Bhaitech).
- Lorandi therefore won the Rookie Trophy, on the podium with him was the Brazilian Enzo Fittipaldi (Prema Power Team) and the Brit Olli Caldwell (BWT Mucke Motorsport).
- Further to Race 1, following a decision by the Race Stewards, it was decided to add a penalty of 25 seconds to Olli Caldwell's final time and take 25 seconds from the German Lirim Zendeli (BWT Muecke Motorsport), who during the race served a drive through penalty. The Result: Caldwell goes from 11th to 18th in the overall race result, and Zendeli from 17th to 8th. As a result, the finishing order of the Rookies from Race 1, saw Leonardo Lorandi confirmed as the winner, followed by Germany’s Andreas Estner (ADM Motorsport) in second and Brazil's Felipe Branquinho (DR Formula) third.
- This afternoon, at 16:00, will be Race 3, over a distance of 28 minutes + 1 lap.
