One bettering his impressive performance at last year’s Hungaroring round, Norbert Kiss took a clean sweep of victories at the Slovakia Ring, dominating the weekend.

Starting from eighth on the grid, he had to work hard to hustle through the field, but made light work of the grid as he climbed the order. Racing respectfully and clean, he found himself challenging Jochen Hahn in second. A textbook Kiss move saw him progress past the German to take his fourth victory of the weekend.

Due to penalties for Luis Recuenco and José Rodrigues from incidents in Race Three, Mark Taylor started on Pole, with Recuenco beside him. For his first pole start, Taylor found himself prey to the rest of the field quickly and dropped down the order, but Recuenco did well to hold Hahn and the rest of the pushing Titans behind him for a few laps.

A big off for Recuenco saw him tumble down the order with two laps to go, leaving both the front row starters outside of the points, Recuenco finishing 11th, Taylor 12th. It was a big shame for Recuenco, who had looked to be on target for an overall podium with Kiss and Hahn due to his impressive performance.

Hahn finished second behind Kiss with André Kursim taking another overall podium, sneaking into third with an under the radar race. Antonio Albacete just missed out on another podium this weekend, finishing fourth.

Steffi Halm and Jamie Anderson tended to find themselves together fighting on track this weekend, and Race Four was no different. The two got close, with a bit of body work rubbing, but this time it was Halm who came out on top to take fifth ahead of Anderson.

Sascha Lenz struggled to progress from his seventh-place start, ending there at the chequered flag.

Steffen Faas made it a double Promoter’s Cup win today, taking the top step in the last race of the weekend. He held off a charging Rodrigues, forcing him to accept second in class, ninth overall. John Newell rounded off the top ten and the Promoter’s Cup podium, adding another FIA Goodyear ETRC trophy to his cabinet.
