Kiss takes lights-to-flag victory in Zolder

Norbert Kiss converted his pole position into another 20 points maximum score as he took his 12th victory of the season.

In his usual fashion, Kiss pulled away from the field after the start, driving a lonely race at the front, unchallenged by Jochen Hahn behind him, and executed his familiar drift as he crossed the finish line.

Sascha Lenz, who started in fourth alongside Adam Lacko, made his way past the Czech driver in the first lap into third, a position he held onto until the chequered flag fell.

Behind the front runners, who drove a fairly quiet race, it was down to business. Jamie Anderson, who started from seventh behind André Kursim, was determined to get past the German and catch his Promoter’s Cup rival Téo Calvet. 

Anderson made a bolt move in the chicane but had to pull out and slot back behind Kursim. He eventually forced the German into an error and made the pass for sixth. Anderson started to hunt down Calvet, and whilst he pushed hard to catch the French driver, it wasn’t enough to challenge him for the Promoter’s Cup win, as he settled for second in class. They finished fifth and sixth overall respectively.

Starting from tenth behind Steffi Halm, Shane Brereton got past the Iveco driver in the first couple of laps. The Apollo Tyres Tor Truck racing team struggled yesterday, but a solid drive from Brereton secured third in the Promoter’s Cup and also pole for the reverse grid race.

José Eduardo Rodrigues couldn’t capitalise on his great eighth position from qualifying, as he lost places to his rivals behind and finished last, with his truck having to be towed back into the paddock. Due to damage to his gear box he won’t be able to take part in Race 4 later today.

Starting from last on the grid, after parts on his engine had to be changed after qualifying, Antonio Albacete managed damage limitation, as he worked his way up the field to take the last points scoring position in tenth, ahead of Clemens Hecker and Jonathan Andre.

It wasn’t the race for Steffen Faas, who had to retire in the first lap, after the turbo connector broke and he subsequently lost all power.
