Showdown in Hockenheim: The champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland was already certain before the finale, but the fight for the title in the rookie classification was still open. In a thrilling final race, Lorcan Hanafin fought to the end and was ultimately rewarded with the title. But that's not all: FACH AUTO TECH teammates Alexander Fach and Christof Langer also caused celebrations with a rookie victory and a podium finish in the ProAm classification. "It was a nerve-wracking finale," said team boss Alex Fach after the 16th race of the season. "We were rooting for the end until the end, and in the end a load fell from our hearts. The season didn’t always go according to plan for us, so we were all the more happy about the strong team result in Hockenheim.” The fact that Hanafin absolutely wanted to secure the title was made clear by the Briton in Sunday's race. Having started fifth, Hanafin initially focused on the front. Close duels with title competitor Huub van Eijndhoven ultimately led to a contact that caused the FACH AUTO TECH driver to spin and lose a lot of places. Thanks to a strong race to catch up, it was finally enough for fourth place in the class and thus for the title. "It was really tight at the end. We didn't give each other anything on the track, I really wanted to get a top result. The fact that it is victory in the championship at the end is a nice reward,” said the rookie champion, who was second on the podium in Saturday's race.
