Mat’o Homola took his first win at home, on an almost dry track, but the Slovak, who started from the pole, needed some luck to achieve victory in front of his fans. Starting from the pole, he was passed by Karamyshev and later by Skuz but the two collided at the end of the straight in lap 5, clearing the way for the BMW of the local hero.
He preceded Kiss, Fulín and Matějovský, who trusted the podium in TC2, with the Hungarian of Unicorse signing a brilliant show on the Alfa 156.
In SMT, Andreas Pfister was an undisturbed leader for the entire race, while battle was fierce behind him, with Bragin and Ryabov taking podium honours.
In S1600, the duel between the two Fiestas of Ulrike Krafft and Gilles Bruckner lasted until the very last meters, with the German managing to keep the Luxembourg driver at bay by a very narrow margin.
