Relegated to last row by a post-qualifying sanction, Nikolay Karamyshev shone in Race 1, charging up through the field and taking a brilliant win.
This was slightly facilitated by the incident on lap 8 that eliminated his team-mate and race leader Igor Skuz, who collided with the Fiesta of Ulrike Krafft that was leading the Super 1600..
Mat’o Homola finished second, very close to Karamysdhev, with Aytaç Biter taking third in both the overall and TC2T class.
In TC2, Michal Matějovský won ahead of Christian Fischer and Petr Fulín, while Aku Pellinen dominated the Single-Make Trophy ahead of Andreas Pfister and Sergey Ryabov after the early leader Dmitry Bragin went off and crashed on the first lap.
The successful trend of Ulrike Krafft in S1600 ended today, as the German girl was involved in the incident with Karamyshev, with Gilles Bruckner inheriting his first class win.
