Pantano on the winning trail again

Giorgio Pantano, who came close to winning the FIA International Formula 3000 title last year, has staked his claim to this year's series with a win in Barcelona on Saturday. Pantano, who is driving for the Durango team, beat championship favorite Bjorn Wirdheim (Arden International) after a race-long battle at the Circuit de Catalunya. Wirdheim's second place means that he is still ahead in the points while Pantano has moved up to second place, equal on points with Enrico Toccacelo, who finished third in Barcelona, at the wheel of his Jordan Junior Team entry.
