It was like a small warm-up race. Most of the 45 drivers arrived on Saturday morning for free practice on the high-speed track because that afternoon should be the first qualifier of the race.

Rico Kröber took the overnight pole position ahead of Toni Gruber and Torsten Müller. Rico tested a lot of set-ups and different kind of gears on his Novarossi-powered XRAY NT1 2010.
Sunday qualifiers were faster and he managed his first pole position in his first race for Team XRAY. The Top 4 also included Frank Pudewell, Toni Gruber, and Jakub Rozycki.
There were four different brands of chassis in Top 4; it would be an exciting final.
