After an end which you don’t see too often where the race leader, L. Travisanutto lifted off and let H. Janker to win the race, the main response to all the questions was: We are republic, We are one.

Paul Aron, winner and championship leader in OK-J. After a surprising win in Sarno in the first round and a bad weekend in PFi where Paul could score just 1 point, looks like his motivation and desire to do well put him again on the first step of the podium.

Nothing describes better the Free Practice 3 of a Friday then a trolley with new tires on it.

Because the pre-grid was too narrow and in Free Practice it seems to have been a bit complicated to go out on track, there was the solution for the Qualifying. One single line.

The weekend didn’t have a good end for Gabriele Mini, after the spark plug cap came off  while he was P4, he still seen the finish flag on P15. The Championship situation is still open in this category where Paul Aron has 17 point lead on Gabriele Mini and Gabriel Borteleto which both have 52 points.

Happiness for Lennox Racing Team. The first year of this new team was not easy, but they always showed good speed, potential and hard work, which all paid off this race where Luca Griggs (2nd) got the first podium for Jordon Lennox-Lamb and his team.

He came in Germany as Championship leader because of his constancy of being the podium in the first 2 rounds, but after finishing in P9, Pedro Hiltbrand leaves behind H. Janker, who has a lead of 19 points.

Even if in the picture you see a small crash, this race has been without major incidents, no yellow/slow or red flag needed anytime during the weekend.

OK category start which put Travisanutto leader of the race since the first corner to… the last, but not first to see the checkered flag.

The organization wetting the entrance to Parc Ferme gives you an idea of how heavy track conditions were here in Germany.

...and here we managed to get a picture from Travisanutto's house in Italy with the Winner's Trophy. Seems like H. Janker gave back to Travisanutto the trophy for 1st place in the end of Sunday. These two drivers showed a lot of respect and team work this weekend.
