In the 1/10th 200mm class Claus Ryeskov laid down the fastest laps in qualifying, at times he was about one second faster per lap than the remainder of the field. Huge tyre wear made things interesting in terms of tyre strategy for the final. From the tone Claus pulled away from the field but he was closely followed by Rene Kjellerup while Thomas Mogensbaek and Tom Limkilde were in a fight for 3rd. At about halftime Claus came for a tyre pitstop and he re-entered the field just behind Rene. On new tyres Claus was much faster and so it was only a matter of time until he passed Rene who in turn had to pit for tyres as did everyone in the final at one or the other point. Ultimately Claus brought home the win from Rene 2nd and Tom 3rd.
