At 18:45, when truth be told, I was already on my way home, the Frikadelli Porsche took the checkered flag victoriously. It was Patrick Huisman who took the lead at Antoniusbuche during the first lap, while Patrick Pilet continued the race after the long red flag to defend the lead. Their second outright VLN victory ever, this time wíth Sabine Schmitz racing.
During the extended red flag a medical helicopter was hoover over the area where a bad crash happened moments earlier. Although the Pflanzgarten II accident looked bad, no one was injured in spite of the VW Scirroco landing outside of the track and the Porsche being a complete write-off as well. Yes, we were worried for a minute there.
Not any moment was there anyone who could threaten Phoenix Racing for the win. All day long Marc Basseng, Frank Stippler and Laurens Vanthoor were ahead of the field and as they crossed the finish line in the late afternoon they were minutes clear of the second placed Black Falcon SLS.
