Dutch sensation Nyck De Vries won the second round of the WSK World Series Super KF class at the Millville Circuit in New Jersey and goes into the final round of the inaugural championship with a slender points lead over Frenchman Armand Convers.
The Chiesa Corse driver, still only in his first season out of Junior karting, had to give best to Convers in the pre final but came back strongly to win the main final by one second over the Kosmic driver.
Despite winning both main finals so far this year, the young McLaren backed driver only leads the overall standings by five points from the consistent Convers, who has won both pre finals and finished second to De Vries in each main final.
De Vries and Convers were the class of the 17-strong field all weekend even though Convers Kosmic teammate Ben Cooper was quickest in qualifying. Convers then won the first heat with De Vries second before the Dutchman reversed the positions in heats two and three.
Even though he started the pre-final from pole position De Vries could only finish fourth as Convers won by nearly one second from countryman Arnaud Kozlinski with De Vries just failing to depose Englishman Cooper for third.
Knowing that he had to do something special in the main final De Vries did just that as he and Convers pulled away from the rest of the pack. Convers tried his utmost but De Vries wasn't to be denied as he equalled his performance from the opening round of the championship at Portimao, crossing the line just over one second in front of Convers with the rest, led by Cooper and his fellow Englishman Gary Catt nearly nine seconds adrift.
With one round of the series to go the title battle is now a head to head scrap between De Vries and Convers with the rest, once again led by Cooper and Catt, some sixty points behind.
