With one race to go and the best three out of four final scores to count Iglesias led Lammers by five points with 25 on offer to the winner and 20 to second meaning whoever finished in front at the end of the next 17 laps would in all probability be European Champ.
When the lights changed Lammers made a poor getaway and fell to fifth behind Iglesias, Mich, Belgium's Yannick De Brabander and Abbasse. But as Lammers tried to force his way back to the front he didn't have to worry about Iglesias pulling away as Mich continued to peg him back, eventually taking the lead on lap three. Iglesias came back at him almost immediately and retook the lead within a lap, by which time Lammers was already in third and glued to the top two.
Lammers took second from Mich on lap six and then engaged in an epic tussle with his teammate, eventually grabbing the lead for good on lap eleven. Iglesias wasn't done yet and launched himself back at Dutchman only to lose it and crash on the penultimate lap, handing the title to Lammers in the process.
Lammers duly completed the final lap half a second ahead of De Brabander with Mich and Abbasse third and fourth, both just six tenths behind the winner following a stirring race.
Despite his misfortune, Iglesias had done more than enough to finish second in the final standings with Mich third overall and Abbasse and Renaudie tied for fourth. Despite only mustering final finishes of tenth and 13th Hawksworth claimed sixth overall but was bitterly disappointed after opening the season with a second place in the first final at Sarno. Hanley took eleventh overall after mirroring Hawksworth's two final finishes while Rowland ended the year in a tie for twelfth.
