Christian Klien inherited victory in the second Superstars International race at Hungaroring as Camilo Zurcher was penalized. Zurcher tapped pole man Dominico Ferlito in to a spin on the first lap, something the strewards gave the Romeo Mercedes driver a 25 second penalty for after the race.
Vitantonio Liuzzi claimed second position after a hard fight through the race with Thomas Biagi. Race winner Klien was behind the both until the very last lap when Biagi tapped Liuzzi, allowing Klien to sneak past.
Biagi crossed the line ahead of Liuzzi, but was moved down a position by the stewards after the race.
Franco Fumi claimed fifth position ahead of Stefano Gabellini and Paolo Meloni. Fransesco Sini and Andrea Larini rounded off not only the top nine, but also the entire field as only nine cars of the 19 car field made it to the finish.
Among the retired drivers were previous championship leader Johan Kristoffersson who pulled in to the pits on the formation lap due to technical problems. His team mates Gianni Morbidelli and Thomas Schöffler also retired, with Morbidelli only completing four laps before he had to pit with technical problems.
Local hero Norbert Michelisz was another driver to retire. The BMW driver was tapped around by Fumi on the very first lap and later retired on lap five.
Liuzzi has emerged as championship leader after the races in Hungary ahead of Biagi in second and previous championship leader Kristoffersson dropping to third. The International Superstars Series continues at Spa on the 15th of July.
