Unfortunately, due to local Covid-19 restrictions the entry count had to be limited to 50 drivers.

Touring car modified, stock (with Hobbywing spec hand-out motors) as well as Formula. In the modified class, Bruno Coelho took the TQ position after the 3 qualifiers, just in front of Alexander Hagberg, with Oliver Havranek in the 3rd spot.
