Qualifying 1 + 2: In the first Qualifying Robin Frijns and Oscar Tunjo were leading the timesheets untill the final minutes. In the end they finished the Qualifying on P 3 - Oscar Tunjo and P 4 - Robin Frijns.

In Qualifying two things went a bit unlucky. Oscar Tunjo wasn´t able to catch a free lap on the short track. Robin Frijns was suffering the same problem with trafic and on top he had problems with a loose engine cover on his car. In the end it was P 4 - Robin Frijns and P 5 - Oscar Tunjo.

Race 1: Oscar Tunjo and Robin Frijns, both had a good start. Tunjo moved upto P 2 in the first corner, Frijns took over P 3 in the second corner and was following his Teammate. After a Safety Car Period, Frijns was able to overtake Tunjo at the Re-Start into the first hairpin after Start-Finish line. From that point on Frijns was running on P 2, followed by Teammate Tunjo on P 3. Untill the chequered flag nothing changed anymore and both Kaufmann Drivers were able to go onto the podium!

Race 2: In the second race both Kaufmann Drivers again had a good start and kept their positions P 4 - Frijns and P 5 - Tunjo. Even though both were running on a very fast race pace with fastest race laps it was impossible to start any overtaking maneuver during the whole race. Finally they finished on P 4 - Frijns and P 5 - Tunjo.
