With two races left to go in the 2017 World Championship we move to the penultimate round on 16-17 September, taking place at the Lausitzring in Germany. Welcome to race weekend! Great to have you with us!
Last year when the race came to the motorsport track, it was Australia’s Matt Hall who flew to victory taking the win from home hero Matthias Dolderer, who had to settle for second place.
Pete McLeod was third, making up the podium in what was Round 6.
As we head into Round 7 for 2017, eyes are once again on McLeod who has moved up to 2nd place in the overall standings after a consistent run of podiums as we near the season end.
Current standings leader, Martin Sonka of the Czech Republic is only four points ahead of the Canadian and they are followed by Kirby Chambliss who has seen a phenomenal return to form after back to back wins in Budapest and Kazan.
It’s sure to be the race to watch as half the field could still contend for the 2017 title.
We’ll be here from today, Friday 15 September, with results from Free Practice and to get you in the race mood for the weekend! See you soon…
