Two-time champion Larry ten Voorde beat teammate Loek Hartog from the start and defended his position through force majeure in the 17-lap race. Larry ten Voorde: “My last race in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is still fresh in my memory. From pole position I lost the fight and came second. So I focused 100 percent on the start and it went well. Thanks to his first place, he took the lead in the championship standings.

In a race interrupted by two safety car phases, teammate Loke Hartog had to defend himself against Benelux champion Harry King (Allied Racing).

But of course it’s great for our elite GB team. Harry King immediately overtook Leon Koehler (Huber Racing). Harry King: “I had some problems in qualifying, but it went well for me during the race.
