Round two of the Eurocup-3 series at the Red Bull Ring saw Owen Tangavelou and Bruno del Pino share wins, inching closer to points leader Javier Sagrera.

In the first race, Tangavelou started on pole and kept the lead until the end of the race, winning ahead of del Pino and Emerson Fittipaldi Jr.

Race two saw Christian Ho start on pole, but the Singaporean was soon passed by del Pino, who held on to the lead to win the race ahead of Sagrera and Tangavelou.

This weekend at Portimao will contain three races, the latter of which, was added to make up for the cancelled second race at Spa-Francorchamps, due to adverse weather conditions.
