News and voices after 21h


After a 14.5-hour fog break, the race was reopened at 12.00 after an introductory lap. Philipp Eng in the Rowe BMW #1 maintained the lead ahead of Maro Engel in the HRT-Mercedes #4. Both pulled away from the Manthey-Porsche #911 with Kevin Estre, who had moved up from fifth to third place, on the first three laps.

Shortly before the end of lap 38, Mercedes driver Engel flew heavily into the crash barriers at the Hohenrain chicane, but remained uninjured. Behind the leading Rowe-BMW #1 and the Manthey Porsche #911, Martin Tomczyk in the second Rowe-BMW #98 started the last three hours of racing in third place.

In the V2T class, a lead of almost ten minutes melted down to a few seconds: since the start, the FK Performance team in the BMW 330i (#159) has been able to consistently extend its lead to almost one lap. These have now gone, with the Adrenalin chasers (#330) now on it.

 The second Adrenalin 330i follows one lap behind in third. In the Porsche Cayman Cup, five cars are still on the same lap: G-Tech (#305), Mühlner (#309), W&S (#302), Mühlner (#310) and KKrämer (#303). The G-Tech team had a lead of just over four minutes at the break, which has now been lost.

#1 Catsburg / Edwards / Eng / Yelloly (BMW M6 GT3)

Team boss Hans-Peter Naundorf: "For us, the tyre choice for the restart was pretty clear. We chose a soft compound because the temperatures are low and there's also the fog."

#5 Kolb / Slooten / Hofer / Marschall (Audi R8 LMS)

Jan Erik Slooten hands over to Dennis Maschall and reports: "My stint was quite good, it's more or less dry but still very slippery. There is a film of grease on the track because of the fog. But the visibility is okay."

#173 Paatz / Nett / Nett / Azcona (Cupra Leon TCR).

Jürgen Nett: "We decided not to repair the car during the night. Unfortunately, with the gap, it no longer makes sense to resume the race."
