The reigning German Champion Steffen Brauchle was one of the last to drive and his score of 45,31 edged out the Dutch driver Edith Chardon who with just four tenths of a point trails the German. The Swiss driver Yannik Scherrer rounded out the top three with 47,71.

The top five drivers all scored under the 50 penalty points with Marijke Hammink (NED) 48,64 holding on to 4th place and Tinne Bax (BEL) in fifth with 49,18. With the scores so close all eyes will be on these drivers Saturday for the marathon.
