Norbert Kiss has repeated his Hungaroring performance, taking three of the four race victories on offer during the Slovakia Ring event.

Race Four’s win was not as easy as the other wins for Kiss, who had to fight his way up from eighth on reverse grid. His mission was assisted when the top three – Shane Brereton, Steffi Halm and Adam Lacko – came together during the first lap. 

Brereton led the field across the line, but both Halm and Lacko felt opportunistic to get the pass done quickly. In tight wheel-to-wheel racing, Halm’s truck got locked in Brereton’s pitching both trucks off the track. Lacko was also tangled in the incident, but he and Brereton were able to continue whilst the damage to Halm’s truck saw her retire from the race. 

This put Andre Kursim into the lead of the race and he began extending his lead down the road from the rest of the grid. Jamie Anderson was promoted up to second after the incident, looking set for another great race around the Slovakia Ring. 

Kursim did all he could to hold both the championship rivals behind, but an intuitive move from Kiss saw both him and Lenz overtake Kursim at the same moment with Kiss jumping past Lenz to inherit the win. In an almost copy paste moment from the start of Race 3, Lenz kept Kiss honest for a lap determined to make the pass for the Race 4 victory, but Kiss had enough of an advantage to take the win by just over a second. 

Kursim held onto the final step of the podium by a tenth of a second as Anderson (taking his fourth Promoter’s Cup win of the weekend) put in a final lap push to try and take his second overall podium of the weekend. 

Jochen Hahn completed the top five with Jose Rodrigues taking sixth overall and second on the Promoter’s Cup podium. It was a good result for the German who caused a delay to the start of the race after the fuel filter in his fuel system cracked, spilling fuel onto the track. For a moment it wasn’t clear whether Hahn would be able to partake, but in a brilliant display of #OneTruckFamily mechanics from all teams came together to get Hahn on track. 

Recovering from a poor third race, Antonio Albacete finished seventh after starting 12 on the grid. Lacko was eighth ahead of Steffen Faas who took his third Promoter’s Cup podium of the weekend. 

Clemens Hecker was tenth, just missing out on his second Promoter’s Cup podium of the year, with Brereton 11th, Luis Recuenco 12th and Teo Calvet 13th, the last driver to be classified.
