The Italian did not do anything wrong in the Wackersdorf race, confirming the starting pole position and managing the advantage over the competition.

Eight tenths of a second for Rafael Camara (Forza Racing), second at the end of the race after a champion progression for the entire duration of the German event. The Brazilian Vice-World Champion finishes on the podium in front of Taylor Barnard (Rosberg Racing), third and out of the fight for the European Title despite the great comeback, by just two points. The Englishman subsequently had to say goodbye to the podium too due to the 5sec penalty for positioning the spoiler, all to the advantage of Marcus Amand (VDK) promoted to bronze medal. Top five closed by Luigi Coluccio (Kosmic) and Valtanen, sixth Barnard with the penalty.
