Nikko Reger and David Staab took victory in the second and final Am/LB Cup race at the Lamborghini Grand Finals, while second-placed Andrzej Lewandowski locked up the Am-class title.

Staab held off intense pressure from the Pole throughout the second of the race, with the No. 148 Precision Performance Motorsports Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 coming across the line just 0.244 seconds ahead of Lewandowski.

After winning the opening race on Saturday, the No. 60 Vincenzo Sospiri Racing entry of Lewandowski clinched the Grand Finals title by four points over Reger and Staab.

Reger started the race from pole position and controlled the race from the start, with Lewandowski and Shehan Chandrasoma vaulting by Alex Au at the start into second and third.

Once Staab took over the car at halfway, he started to fall under pressure from Lewandowski who closed up the gap and made several attempts to pass.

He came closest with a lunge up the inside 0f the Turn 6 hairpin, only to run wide which allowed Staab to slip back through and retake the lead.

The two cars remained in close proximity as the clock ticked down, with a drag race to the line when the PPM-run car got caught in traffic through the final set of corners.

Chandrasoma finished a distant third even factoring in a five-second penalty for track limits. Au finished fourth, with Gabriel Rindone rounding out the top five.

In LB Cup, the sibling duo of Francois and Benoit Semoulin took a class victory to seal the title.

The No. 26 Semspeed entry finished ahead of the No. 189 NTE Sport machine of Fred Roberts, with Gerard van der Horst completing the podium in third.

With Saturday winner Slade Stewart fourth in the No. 114 Flying Lizard Motorsports car, it allowed the Belgian pairing to take the title with a difference of four points.
