As sixth overall, he was also delighted to receive a trophy as second best junior on the first day of the race. Fidel Leib could be happy about the trophy as XP-winner after the thrilling race. In the first race he finished 13th overall on the Profi-Car AMG GT4 #2.
In the Sunday race, Jan Kisiel on the AMG #4 focused on one thing in particular: The podium! In the second race Kisiel was temporarily even in second place. He could not defend his position and stuck to the safe strategy - taking no risks.
