In Hockenheim the battle on the track was one between the regulars and the guest drivers, with the brothers Morris and Flynt Schuring in the colors of Huber Racing, among others, leaving a strong impression.

Flynt then rode to fourth and fifth overall, while Robin Knutsson (Westcoast Racing) did the opposite.
In the Pro-Am class, Sören Spreng (Black Falcon) took it twice. Didier Glorieux (Speedlover) and Tom Boonen (#Team PGZ by Redant Racing) took the podium on Saturday, while Tom Boonen did even better on Sunday. Jan Lauryssen had of course been sure of his title in the class since Barcelona.
Giovanni Scamardi showed that he loves the Porsche competition, with two victories in the Am class, each ahead of Joan Vinyes in the colors of Baporo Motorsport and champion Sébastien Lajoux on behalf of DUWO Racing.
Last but least, Lucas van Eijndhoven took the lead in the Rookie Championship in the last weekend with a double victory, ahead of Rik Koen (Revs Motorsport), and also the title.
