After inheriting pole position, Jochen Hahn took a light-to-flag victory

Hahn led the grid across the line and maintained a competitive lead over the field throughout the 11 laps of racing. Antonio Albacete tried to reel in the German but didn’t have enough pace in his MAN truck to be a threat, finishing 1.7 seconds behind in second place. 

Albacete was more focused, however, on defending from a charging Norbert Kiss behind, who had made a great start from fourth to pass Sascha Lenz in the first lap. He kept the pressure on Albacete throughout the race, but fantastic defending from the Spanish driver kept the championship leader on the third step of the podium. 

The rest of the field had a pretty quiet race, with Lenz leading fellow championship rival Adam Lacko across the line to complete the top five. 

Shane Brereton, finishing sixth overall, took the Goodyear Cup victory, finishing two seconds ahead of seventh-place and second in the Goodyear Cup Jamie Anderson. Steffen Faas, Luke Garrett and André Kursim filled the top ten. 

Kursim recovered well after an early race spin saw him facing the wrong way on track at the end of the first lap. Luckily there was no damage done to the truck so he was able to carry on without any issues. 

Luis Recuenco, Heinrich Hecker and Stephanie Halm finished just outside of the points. 

The second race of today starts at 17:30, with Faas on reverse pole ahead of Goodyear Cup drivers Anderson and Brereton.
