The event, which was held in Portimão, saw Torrente beat Thani Al Qemzi by 1.38 seconds with Swedish Jonas Andersson finishing third on the podium.

“What can I say, what a race,” Torrente said. “For the last 20 laps I only had trim sometimes and I was just fighting with everything I had.

“I knew Thani was coming and I just fought him off, held him off. I hope he’s not upset but I was driving as best as I could without trim.”
