Probably not since the days of Mario Andretti in F1 an American has won such a prestigious title in Europe. Together with German Christopher Mies Conor de Phillippi won the title in a dramatic final race in which Mies even brought the title chances in danger by running in the gravel trap prior tot he compulsory driver changes. Their nearest rivals, the Callaway Corvette C7 R from German Daniel Keilwitz and Frenchman Jules Gounon also had good chances after this. But with a mere 17 minutes to go the hungry Gounon lost control of his Corvette at the Hockenheim Mercedes arena with a sickening crash as a result. Though it was relieved sign that Gounon was alert and could undo his racing gloves, he had to be cut out of the remains from what once was a championship threatening Corvette. First reports indicated that Gounon had fractured his left leg appeared to be untrue. Fortunately the Frenchman was already in good spirits on Monday at the hospital. A sad of the season as it was a hell of a battle between both teams. The first race was being taken by the Team 75 Bernhard Porsche from David Jahn/Kevin Estre and the second by the Herberth Porsche from Robert Renauer/Martin Ragginger in the Herberth Porsche 911 GT3 R. The German Formula 4 title was being taken by Australian Joey Mawson for the Dutch VAR Team. Mick Schumacher finished second and collected the teamchampionship. Briton Josh Files won the TCR Germany championship with Target Competition Civic TCR by winning the first race. In the second German Steve Kirsch won with a Honda. The European TCR Championship went to Belgian Pierre Yves Corthals and  finally the NEC series was being taken by Briton Landon Norris who won his 3rd title. Also in action came the STT. A mix from modern and somewhat older GT’s. All well prepared.
