Jamie Anderson has taken his fourth overall victory of the season and ninth Promoter’s Cup win in a dominant lights-to-flag display for the final race at Most.

There was cause for concern ahead of the race, when the trucks came to the grid missing pole-sitting Anderson and Sascha Lenz. Both had changed parts between races - Anderson a turbo and Lenz his engine – and had teething issues when they fired up the trucks. Although there was a worry that neither would make it in the 20-minute window the trucks have to assemble on the grid, all 14 trucks took the start of the race.

Due to their pre-race issues, it had been assumed that neither the #33 or #2 would have full power for the race, giving Lukas Hahn reason to feel optimistic going into Turn 1 from second. However, the troubles faded for Anderson as soon as the lights went out and he cruised to the win with no threat from behind, almost five seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

Hahn had done well to hold off a charging Adam Lacko, who passed teammate Téo Calvet for third into the first corner, but the Chrome driver didn’t have enough to keep the Titan behind. Around the halfway mark, Lacko made the move that would guarantee him second on the final podium, demoting Hahn to third.

Antonio Albacete was making good ground on Hahn looking to steal that podium finish, but Hahn didn’t crack under the pressure and led Albacete across the line nose to tail.

The battle for fifth saw the top three from Race Three together on track, and with Kiss looking to extend his championship lead even further, he was on a mission to pass. The duo came together briefly as Jochen Hahn nudged Kiss off track defending his fifth position, which saw Kiss drop down the order and out of the fight. He continued and didn’t lose any positions, but this took away his chance to climb any higher up the grid or, importantly, outscore Hahn or Lenz.

The trio came across the line in the order they started: Hahn fifth, Lenz sixth, and Kiss seventh.

They were all pushed up to these positions after Calvet and Albacete came together fighting for fourth. Calvet had been behind and got a good run on the Spaniard, but was squeezed off track and even though no contact was made, Calvet ended up running through the gravel. This dropped him to eighth overall but he still held onto third on the Promoter’s Cup podium behind Anderson and Lukas Hahn.

Steffi Halm finally had an incident-free race at the Autodrom Most and came across the line ninth, leading José Rodrigues to the chequered flag to take the final point of the weekend.

Shane Brereton was just outside the points in 11th, with Steffen Faas 19 seconds further behind in 12th. The reason for the lengthy gap between the two was a first corner incident between Faas and Rodrigues, that saw the former end up going through the gravel. All trucks continued, but this put Faas on the back foot for the rest of the race.

Rounding off the final order, André Kursim was 13th with Jonathan André 14th.
