Race report by Martin Bayer
Second round of German National was held in Bischofsheim near Frankfurt. This round was very special for me because it was held on track where the 2014 European championship is going to take place. So it was also a very good practice for next year.

On Friday we start with practice, which did not go really well for me. I had some issues but we figured them out and were looking forward to Saturday qualifications. I was doing much better in qualifications until a heavy rain forced us to cancel the 5th round of qualification runs. Overall I got TQ spot for Sunday finals.

On Sunday we made only few minor changes on car because it felt already perfect during qualification. In finals we decided to run different tires as they last longer and I could have stronger mid and end section of the race. In the first minutes of the finals we were fighting with Nuemann, Keller and Reckward for top spot. But after 14 min. mark my car became faster and I was started to build gap. I held first place until the end and took home the win in this round.

Overall I finished first and got also 2013 German National Champion title. Thanks to all my sponsors for making this possible.
