The second FIA European Touring Car Cup race at Brno has ended in Single Make Trophy victory for Dušan Borković by three-tenths of a second.

After finishing runner-up in the opening event, Borković started sixth on the reverse grid race two. He took the lead from TC2T contender Davit Kajaia on lap six and held off race one winner Mato Homola for his fourth victory of 2015 following a thrilling battle between the SEAT-driving pair.

Behind Homola, Kajaia won again won TC2T in third overall. Czech Michal Matĕjovský, who started on pole, led initially in his slower normally-aspirated BMW before giving up the unequal struggle and finishing fifth overall behind Ronny Jost to win TC2. But while Matĕjovský celebrated, there was despair for his countryman and team-mate Petr Fulin, who was prevented from starting due to a technical irregularity.

Niklas Mackschin made it back-to-back wins in Super 1600 as Ulrike Krafft crashed.
