Last weekend, the season finale in the DMV Touring Car Championship was held on the GP circuit at the Hockenheimring. Jurgen Bender (Neckarshulm) became the new champion of the series. He won the title by a margin of 0.1 points over his teammate Martin Dechent. During the season, Bender replaced his Porsche 997 GT3 with a Corvette GT3 from Callaway Competition with which he achieved five class victories during the remainder of the season. Bender had made the vehicle change after the race weekend at the Red Bull Ring.
Regarding the race weekend at Hockenheim, it should be mentioned that the Swiss driver, Jürg Aeberhard, in the RAVENOL-Porsche, crossed the finish line in second place in both races (Div.2). Christian Country driving the Mercedes SLS GT3 from RAVENOL partner Land Motorsport was in third and fourth respectively in the two races.
