In front of 10,200 enthusiastic spectators at the weekend, the reigning champion Max Nagl (D/KMP-Honda-Racing powered by Krettek) prevailed in the top class with two race victories in the three races against the strong national and international competition. Adam Sterry (GB/Schmicker Racing) won the second race on Sunday afternoon and took second place in the overall standings. Local hero Maximilian Spies (D/Kosak Racing Team) rounded off the event podium to the delight of the loud fans.

Jere Haavisto and Tom Koch rounded out the top five overall. Henry Jacobi went down in the second run and was eliminated. In the third run he achieved tenth place despite some injuries, which brought him ninth place overall. Jordi Tixier (F/KMP-Honda-Racing powered by Krettek) was also badly injured after a heavy fall in qualifying, after he was taken to the hospital for a check-up during the first race and did not compete at all. After the doctors cleared him, the Frenchman showed fighting spirit, started on Sunday and finished the weekend in eleventh place.
