Bringing home the first victory of the weekend and converting his pole from yesterday, Norbert Kiss was in a league of his own. Crossing the line 9.3 seconds ahead of the rest of the grid, his win was never in question nor under threat.

Looking to make a pass on current class leader Téo Calvet, Shane Brereton went for the move down the main straight, hoping to out-drag the young Frenchman. Steffi Halm, however, threw a spanner in Brereton’s plan as she too went for the pass on him around the outside. Moving to the left, Brereton got too close to Calvet, with the pair coming together.  A smokescreen resulted in heavy damage to Calvet’s front left and put him on the back foot for the rest of the 11 laps. 

He held onto the lead in class for a corner, but with the heavy damage he was easy to pass for Brereton. The incident went under investigation, but Brereton held onto his victory for the chequered flag, seventh overall. 

Avoiding the battles behind and having a fairly quiet race, Sascha Lenz added to his podium tally this season with a strong second place. He didn’t have the pace to reel in Kiss but had enough to keep the threat of Jochen Hahn behind in third at bay. The top three settled early on in the race, finishing as it started. 

Adam Lacko had Antonio Albacete all over the back of him in the final stages of the race, but did just enough to keep the Spaniard behind. Albacete didn’t ever seem in a position to try and make the pass for fourth, even though he was right on Lacko’s rear, the pair split by 0.7s as they crossed the finish line. 

Steffi Halm survived the first corner incidents to race home for sixth, with André Kursim having a quiet race for eighth, taking reverse pole for this evening’s race. 

Jamie Anderson added some more points to him name after his difficult Misano weekend, beating Anthony Janiec to ninth and taking second in Promoter’s Cup. Calvet was just outside the points, 11th overall, but held on with his damaged truck to take the final step of the Promoter’s Cup podium. 

All 13 trucks finished this afternoon’s race, with Clemens Hecker ahead of Rene Reinert’s replacement for this weekend (as the German has sustained a shoulder injury) Martin Gibson last. The pair came together going through Turn 1 sending bodywork flying, but Gibson lost out when he collected a tyre puncture that he had to race with until the race ended.
