Lukoil Racing Team pilots showed amazingly close results in the morning qualification races: the spread between Gvazava, who won the pole position, and Borisenko, who came second, was only 0.058 seconds. Danila Ivanov came just 0.002 seconds behind Yury, finishing in the third place. Ivanov seemed to have a great start in the race, slipstreaming ahead; however, Dmitry Gvazava quickly regained leadership, fighting off an early assault by Anton Nemkin.
Unfortunately, Sergey Egorov, the owner of Russian Mitjet Series Russia, who missed most of the current season because of an injury, wasn’t very lucky from the start of this Sunday’s race – he finished the first lap way behind the other racers after his car was spun around at one of the corners. Konstantin Gugkaev had to drive off into the pit lane to fix a malfunction. After the mechanics struggled to fix the problem, Konstantin fell out of the race. Yury Borisenko suffered serious damage to the front of his car after a minor contact with Gugkaev. Nevertheless, the Lukoil Racing Team pilot continued his battle for the fourth place against Nikita Khudov.
Nemkin and Ivanov had a spectacular battle for the second position, but Danila’s car gave out at lap six, and he had to slow down and let his opponents pass him. Stanislav Yarovoy also did not finish due to technical problems with the car.
Dmitry Gvazava continued his triumph, Anton Nemkin walked away with a silver medal, and Mikhail Makarovsky took the third position at the podium. Nikita Khudov was the fastest in Semi-PRO category, Dmitry Kaishev coming second and Danila Ivanov third.
Unfortunately, the marshals did not let Borisenko enter the final race due to too many demerit points. Moreover, they blamed Yury for Konstantin Gugkaev’s DNF in the first race. Nevertheless, the final race of Mitjet Series Russia 2018 started at 2:40pm Moscow time. In just four turns, Gvazava regained leadership after a reversed start. However Dmitry had to fend off regular attacks by Danila Ivanov, who had a great start from the fifth position. Anton Nemkin, who was in a great shape before the end of the season, wouldn’t fall behind the leaders. Soon leadership changed: Ivanov got ahead, while Mikhail Makarovsky took advantage of his less experienced counterparts’ mistakes and got into the third place, which he maintained all the way to the finishing line.
Eventually Dmitry Gvazava, the early winner of Mitjet Series Russia, moved to the second position, showed an outstanding performance during the final part of the race and came right behind the winner of this stage – his teammate Danila Ivanov. This was the second Cup in the Abkhazian pilot’s career.
In Semi-PRO category, Ivanov came first, Nikita Khudov won silver after becoming the leader in this category, and Dmitry Kaishev was the third.
