The  finish of the second race resulted in photo-finish, where Jonathan collected points for a 2nd  place, losing to Swedish driver Mats E Djuse by a nose.

Third race was unfortunate  disqualification due to no fault of the driver.

After the third race, Dutch driver was already  difficult to catch as he led by points overall. Jonathan  was sharing 4th position with 25 points.
