13 drivers lined up on the grid with Lukas Hahn joining the field for the fourth round of the ETRC Digital Racing Challenge.
Qualifying was once again dominated by Norbert Kiss as he took his fourth pole position ahead of Sascha Lenz and Lukas Hahn.
At the start of race 1, Sascha Lenz jumped Norbert Kiss to lead the field into turn 1. A chain reaction caused by Adam Lacko pushed Kiss to make contact with Lenz, who went into the gravel and lost grounds.
Lukas Hahn emerged from the first corner scramble in the lead, closely followed by Jonathan Andre and Norbert Kiss.
The Hungarian made short work of Andre and worked away at the gap to Lukas Hahn. The two drivers closely battled for the lead when Kiss braked too late and bumped Hahn into the barriers. Kiss let him back onto the track as Jonathan Andre took advantage and attacked the Hungarian who kept second place.
Lukas Hahn defended his lead well against Kiss, who put the pressure on the German driver. When Hahn ran wide Kiss went through to take the lead. The Hungarian went on to extend his lead lap by lap and crossed the line with a gap of over 11 seconds to Jonathan Andre who overtook Hahn for second place.
Sascha Lenz has proven in the last couple of races, that he’s a determined racer as once again he charged through the ranks from the bottom of the field to finish fourth.
Björn Tyhuis who finished eighth in the first race started race 2 on pole ahead of Frenchman Téo Calvet who finished a disappointing seventh in the first race.
The Dutch driver stayed out of trouble at the start, leading the field ahead of Calvet who overtook him in the second lap. The Frenchman couldn’t get away from the field though as the competition stayed hot on his tail.
Kiss made contact on the first lap which looked to hinder his charge. He recovered well though working his way up the field and moving into fourth within the first three laps.
Sascha Lenz kept working his way up through the field to catch up with Calvet and Kiss. The trio fought hard for positions until the end, but the French driver crossed the finish line first, with Kiss in second and Lenz in third, ending Norbert Kiss’ dominance in the first seven races.
