The fourth and the eighth rank were scored by Buggyra drivers David Vršecký and Uwe Nittel in the opening cup race at the Nürburgring. Still before the start David Vršecký moved to the fifth rank as a result of the penalisation of Jochen Hahn for exceeding the maximum permitted speed in yesterday ´s time practice.
And he managed to defend this rank easily despite the attack from Adam Lacko after the start. And as in the course of the second lap Östreich starting from the first row began to lose, David immediately found himself ranking fourth at the beginning of the third lap. "I received information from the pits that the leading group of the race was too far ahead, and so I concentrated on keeping the position and scoring ten points," described the European Champion the race after the finish. "Even though Jochen Hahn pressed strongly at the end of the race, I gave him no chance to overtake. I am again closer to the winners´ rostrum." "I have scored another three points, so I am satisfied. I know Nürburgring and the track prepared no surprise to me. I believe to score in the rest of the races too," commented Uwe Nittel on his performance.
