Grubmuller wins race two in Germany.

Nick Tandy and his JTR Mygale were promoted to fourth by the incident, and the Briton was right on the leading trio's tail for three laps before spinning away his chances of victory.

"I was trying too hard to win," said a Tandy, "and I spun right around."

The Rockingham winner lost four places as a result, and it was Ericsson who inherited fourth, the Swede finishing well ahead of top British finisher Riki Christodoulou. Tandy picked off Ricciardo and Adriano Buzaid on the final lap to slot into sixth, with Henry Arundel completing the top nine.

An excellent tenth overall, and leading National Class contender, was Fortec's Daniel McKenzie. With his usual sparring partner Gabriel Dias running very worn tyres as a consequence of his Saturday accident, and thus in no shape to attack, McKenzie was able to win as he pleased.

"It was a great race," the Briton enthused, bouncing back from the collision that took both National Class contenders out on Saturday, "I think Gabriel ended up about 45s behind me, but it wasn't easy. I needed to keep my nose clean and the conditions were extremely hard. But the car was fantastic and I was keeping well up with the International runners."

Daisuke Nakajima collected the final international class point with eleventh overall.
