Round 11 - Result - Nurburgring
8th July 2000

Junior class leader Bruce Jouanny took another overall victory at the Nurburgring, to add to the win in Spa last month. Pole position holder Damien Faulkner got a clean start and led into the first corner. Behind him chaos reigned as cars fought for position at the first corner. Richard Lyons, Bruno Besson and Paul Edwards were all eliminated with many other cars forced to take avoiding action. With rain falling slowly the track was damp in places and Faulkner span on the beginning of lap 2, promoting Jouanny into the lead, closely followed by Robbie Kerr. Kerr battled hard and looked to be a serious threat to the Frenchman, but Bruce defended his position well. By mid-race Jouanny had opened up a gap over the Englishman, which he held to the chequered flag. Meanwhile behind the two frontrunners, Jacky Van Der Ende was leading a four-car battle for 3rd place. Justin Keen in 4th was pressurising the Dutchman but he was also in turn feeling the pressure from Jesper Carlsen. With Derek Hayes making up the four some, this proved to be the battle to watch as each driver in turn looked for an opening.

Jouanny came home in first place, punching the air in delight as he crossed the line. Robbie Kerr was second, 1.6 seconds behind Jouanny. Jacky van der Ende took the last podium place ahead of Keen, Carlsen and Hayes. Damien Faulkner had the consolation of setting the fastest lap, set while he came from the back of the field to finish in 10th. This leaves Faulkner still in the championship lead with a reduced margin over Justin Keen. <pre> Round 11 Result
