Marcel Fugel received a drive-through penalty for this, but before he took it, the obviously over-motivated young man from Chemnitz fought further, sometimes hair-raising skirmishes with, among others, Nico Gruber (Hyundai), before the race management put an end to the hustle and bustle and the Honda driver with the black one Flag (disqualification) withdrawn from the race.
Andersen, who was twelve seconds behind the penultimate, took advantage of the many duels in the field and worked his way closer and closer to his rivals. In the further course of the race he then caught up one position after the other.
After a tough duel with the Polish Honda driver Albert Legutko, the Dane, who had also finished the TCR series in his home country on Ranz two last year, finally took fifth place, which was enough for him to make the runner-up championship.
Meanwhile, the Lithuanian Jonas Karkyls, who started from seventh place, stayed out of all skirmishes and passed skilfully. In a hot final phase, he also overtook Szymon Ladniak and took home his first victory in the ADAC TCR Germany.
“It’s a great feeling, we didn’t expect it. There is no better way to end a season. Now we want to celebrate a bit, ”Karklys cheered.
