Already crowned 2012 ADAC Procar Series drivers’ champion Jens Weimann finished off the season as he had performed throughout most of it, taking a pair of victories at the season finale at Hockenheim to finish with a winning total of 14 from 16 races.
Weimann’s Thate Motorsport team recorded their first ever one-two results at the season finale, since adding a second car for 2011 champion Johannes Leidinger two weeks ago at the Nürburgring, with Weimann leading Leidinger to the chequered flag in both of today’s races.
The final step on the podium consisted of Swiss-drivers Peter Rikli in race one and Markus Huggler in race two in their Honda Civic and BMW 320i E46′s respectively.
Liqui Moly Team Engstler’s Paul Green retired from the first race, after briefly leading ahead of the two Thate BMWs, but was forced to pit with a technical fault which could not be resolved before race two.
In Division 2, Guido Thierfelder took a win in race one in his ETH Tuning Peugeot 207 Sport, but there was some joy for the Engstler team in race two, with Lennart Marioneck recording his fourth win of the season in his Ford Fiesta and moving up to second place in the drivers’ standings, tied with Ralf Glatzel on points but ahead in the positions due to his win tally.
Andreas Rinke notched up two second place finishes in only his second weekend in the championship in a privately entered Citroën Saxo VTS, whilst Ralf Glatzel took the final spot on the Divison 2 podium in race one in his Ford Fiesta, and Argentine Wilson Borgnino third in the second race in the Maurer Motorsport Chevrolet Aveo.
At the end of the season, Jens Weimann ends the championship on 146 points, 55 clear of Liqui Moly Team Engstler’s Paul Green, his only full-time rival in the Super 2000-based Division 1 class.
Guido Thierfelder was already confirmed as the Division 2 champion two weeks ago at the Nürburgring, and finishes with 137 points, 50 points clear of Marioneck and Glatzel.
Thate Motorsport also win the Division 1 teams’ title on 158 against Engstler Motorsport’s 91, whilst the single car operation of ETH Tuning won the Division 2 teams’ title on 144 against the two-car Engstler squad on 98.
