  • He had taken the pole position with authority in Friday's qualifying, only to drop 11th in the intermediate classification on Saturday evening due to an unfortunate retirement in the qualifying heats. However, Arthur Dorison (France) did not let go and, in front of the home crowd, staged an extraordinary comeback: just enough to win the final. Not only because, with the discard rule, the Frenchman snatches the title from Guillaume Bouzar (Luxembourg).

  • From the pole position of the final, Mark Dubnitski (Estonia) starts well, but in the following laps he has to let Nando Weixelbaumer (Austria) pass, faster than him. After being overtaken by Dorison, the Austrian and Estonian compete for the place of honor and the duel rewards Dubnitski in front of Weixelbaumer.

  • Remarkable comeback for Jindrich Pesl (Czech Republic): the reigning champion of the WSK Super Master Series in the MINI category climbs a total of 17 positions and closes at the foot of the podium. Iwo Beszterda (Poland) is fifth at the finish.

  • Sixth position was fatal for Bouzar who, for a matter of 6 points in the championship standings, gave the title to his rival Dorison. Aleksandar Bogunovic (Slovenia) finishes seventh, followed by Tiziano Kuzhnini (Switzerland), eighth, Riccardo Leone Cirelli (Italy), ninth, and Markas Silkunas (Lithuania), tenth.

  • Honorable mention also for Santino Panetta (Argentina), who finished 12th after climbing 21 positions. Nico Houben (Netherlands) finishes ahead of the Argentine, 11th.

  • A technical problem puts an end to the race of Nikolas Roos (South Africa), as well as Yam Pinto (Israel) raises the white flag early. Matias Orjuela (Colombia) also retired.
