Qualification rounds started on Saturday morning, but the weather was still bad and the rain came down. It was difficult to get a dry run and most time the drivers were racing in wet conditions.

Sunday morning also started with rain, but the track dried quickly. So all drivers finally got a dry run in a total of 5 qualification rounds. In Germany this meant that only the best run of each would be counted.

All A-mains started in dry conditions. In Modified was a great battle between Chrissy Krapp and Team XRAY driver Steven Weiss. Both were driving amazingly well. Steven tried everything to catch Krapp but to no avail. In the end Team XRAY driver Steven Weiss finished on the podium, while XRAY driver Freddy Südhoff finished in the unlucky 4th place.

There was also a great battle in Stock category. Alexander Stocker and XRAY driver Daniel Wohlgemuth were pulling away from the rest of the field in each final. Both were doing very well but in the end, Stocker took the win (no pun intended). The other XRAY drivers had a lot of trouble in the finals.
