Most drivers got a great start off the line with Pat and Ross driving side by side down the straight. Rod Salmon wasn’t so lucky with the anti-stall kicking in on his Skwirks R8. The first turn was disastrous for many. Pat, Ross, Nathan Tregarthen, Francarlo Rizzo and Iain McIntosh all out braked themselves into the corner. Despite all odds Ross managed to keep up front and even take the lead from Pat, with him dropping to third place. Apart from an off by Chris Herringe, the bottom half of the grid remained the same at first half of the lap. Chris Campbell did a great job of trying to hold back Shane but just didn’t have the pace after turning off of the GP circuit. Michael Donnellan while not being the fastest, was consistent.

Throughout the race many of the unseasoned drivers struggled to stay on the track either locking their brakes or taking a corner too fast, expected on a track as demanding as the Nordschleife. The field was established early on with Ross and Pat maintaining their positions for the rest of the race. Francarlo managed to overtake Shane, Jaycie and Nathan to place third, just a minute behind Pat. Nathan finished fourth with Jaycie almost three minutes behind after having to take an unscheduled pit stop. Shane and Iain finished sixth and seventh respectively, both ahead of their starting positions. Chris Herringe, Michael, Chris Campbell and Rod rounded out the rest of the grid.

What a great race guys and thanks for coming along!!!
