The pilot of the ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg eV lapped the route in Styria in a time of 1: 45, 538 minutes and thus battle 0, 164 Seconds faster than the American Jak Crawford. The Red Bull Junior was able to improve significantly on his last lap, relegating his Van Amersfoort team-mate and championship leader Jonny Edgar to third place.
