The title favourites of the German Schaltkart Championship made it exciting until the end. Fabian Federer (SRP Racing Team) and the two brothers Jorrit and Stan Pex (both CRG Holland) fought for the title. After the heats the Pex brothers in first and second place were the best starting position, Federer, on the other hand, did not get a perfect Saturday and was only tenth. But in the finals the cards were shuffled again. The first race was led by the youngster Pex protégé, but he slipped a little towards the middle of the race. His brother Jorrit took over and won ahead of local hero Rick Dreezen (TB Racing Team). Stan finished third ahead of guest drivers Bas Lammers (Alpha Karting) and Jonathan Thonon (Birel Art Racing KSW). Federer, who scored important championship points in sixth place, made up ground.
The decisive finale began with a bang. Co-favorite Stan Pex retired in the starting phase and lost all chances for the title. At the top, however, Jorrit delivered a spotlessly clean performance and drove to a one-two victory. But in the end it wasn't enough to win the seventh championship title, even though it was really exciting in the last lap. Martijn van Leeuwen (TB Racing Team) and Federer touched each other, which caused both to lose ground. Van Leeuwen received a time penalty and was only ninth. New second was Alexander Schmitz (Renda Motorsport) who saw the finish ahead of Federer. Dreezen and Emil Skäras (Energy Corse) followed on the other positions. Despite the small setback, Federer managed to win his first DSKM title in the end. "I've been in the DKM for many years now and am happy to have won the championship. After the chequered flag fell, I wasn't sure whether it was enough, so I'm all the happier now," beamed the South Tyrolean in the champion interview.
