Joonas Lappalainen defends his points lead and wins the 2016 Audi Sport TT Cup championship title today at Hockenheimring. After winning yesterday’s first race of season’s finale, Lappalainen had no pressure today and his goal was not to finish too far behind his only rival Dennis Marschall.
The duo started the race from P1 and P2. Marschall remained in front until the checkered flag, scoring his fifth win of the season. Lappalainen lost one place from Nicklas Nielsen, finishing third. For the 18-year-old Finn it was enough to take his second championship title in a career, after he won the Swedish Formula Renault two years ago. Marschall made a progress compated to the last years participation in the Audi Sport TT Cup, when he finished second in the final standings. Today’s podium put Nielsen to the third place in the classification, ahead of Sheldon van der Linde.
