Téo Calvet has taken the Promoter’s Cup title with a race to spare after finishing second in class for the penultimate race of the season.  

With Jamie Anderson qualifying on class pole, it was still advantage Calvet as the third race got underway. Action ensued as we saw the first red flag of the weekend with a domino effect incident seeing Jochen Hahn end on top of Sascha Lenz.

The incident started with contact between Antonio Albacete and Adam Lacko that pushed Lacko wide, sliding around the first corner. He managed to stay on the track, pointing the right direction, but the trucks behind him dove to avoid. The knock on effect saw Hahn hit the back of Lenz with speed, mounting the back of the truck.

The red flag lasted for about 20 minutes before the race resumed. Lenz was able to rejoin the grid but the damage on Hahn’s truck was too much to continue.

Once the race had restarted, Norbert Kiss disappeared down the road, taking his 16th win of the season. Lacko managed to hold off the attacking Albacete second time of asking to take second ahead of the Spaniard, who completed the podium.

Lenz finished fourth, and with Hahn not scoring at all, the points gap between the pair is down to four, so it’ll all be to race for in the final race of the season.

Although Anderson won the Promoter’s Cup race, he didn’t outscore Calvet enough to keep the championship fight going to the final race. His fifth overall solidifies his position in the overall standings, looking good to hold onto sixth.

Steffi Halm finished sixth overall, ahead of Calvet who had a battle for second in class with José Rodrigues. A few laps from the end the Frenchman got back ahead to take second in class, Rodrigues third in Promoter’s, split from Calvet by Andre Kursim.

John Newell completed the top ten, taking his first overall points of the season. Only 12 trucks classified, with Jonathan André and Shane Brereton completing the order. Brereton fell behind André due to a ten second penalty for overspeeding.

Steffen Faas was unable to start the race due to engine issues. Clement Hecker joined the list of retirees thanks to steering issues.

All trucks are expected to take the grid for the last race of the season.
