Jilles Groskamp lead home an Infinity 1-2 at the third round of the Euro Nitro Series in Austria today. Starting from 4th on the grid, the Dutch driver would win the 45-minute encounter from team-mate Francesco Tironi, benefiting from engine troubles that would strike both Top Qualifier Dominic Greiner and Eric Dankel. Taking early control of the race, Greiner looked destined for his second win of the season with his team executing a perfect tyre stop but as the Serpent driver rejoined the track his engine cut in the sweeper. Brought back to the pit lane, it fired up immediately, but again in the sweeper it stopped but again it was fired up without hesitation and third time lucky it kept going for the remainder of the race but it cost the dominant German any chance of the win. The only driver to really take the fight to Greiner today, Dankel’s race started to come undone when he made contact with Alessio Mazzeo who was exiting the pits but in the end the Mugen driver’s frustration would only get worse with a flame out, contact with a backmarker and finally a broken engine. All the while Groskamp was having a steady race even overcoming a slow tyre stop to take his 2nd ENS career win ahead of Tironi with Mazzeo hanging on to complete the podium ahead of Greiner.
