Jakub Knoll and Josef Záruba win with Lamborghini

The fourth endurance race of this season took place at the Lausitzring circuit in Germany at the end of July. In the ESET Cup, the crew of Jakub Knoll and Josef Záruba, driving a Lamborghini SuperTropheo for Mičánek Motorsport, claimed the overall victory.

The Friday endurance race started with the crew of Gregor Zsigo and Dennis Waszek in the pole position, driving a BMW M6 GT3 for Racing Trevor. Their main competitor in the GT3 category, Antal Zsigo, with a newer version of the BMW M4 GT3, started behind them. However, in the early stages of the race, he overtook Gregor Zsigo and took the lead not only in the GT3 category but also in the ESET Cup Endurance overall.

The calm race was disrupted after a few minutes by a safety car, which spent several minutes on the track. When it finally returned to the pit lane and the green flags waved, thirty minutes remained in the race, and the drivers faced pit stops.

These pit stops shuffled the order at the front, placing the Knoll-Záruba crew in first place. Antal Zsigo defended his position against the pressing Dennis Waszek for a long time, but the two BMWs from Racing Trevor team eventually swapped places after a beautiful duel, and Waszek began to significantly close in on Záruba. The GTC category leader held his position and kept Waszek behind. Knoll and Záruba won the GTC category, while Gregor Zsigo and Dennis Waszek celebrated in the GT3 category, with Antal Zsigo finishing second in GT3.

The Carlin Racing team, with Viktor Mráz and Adam Kout in a KTM GTX, celebrated a victory in the GTX category after 60 minutes, although it was not an easy race. Another KTM GTX crew, Petr Koukola and Václav Janík from Orlen Janík Motorsport, also competed. Janík pressed hard on the finishing Mráz, but the positions did not change at the finish line.

In the GTC1 category, Bob Bau won with his Porsche 991 Cup.
