The best driver in the amateur classification was Wolfgang Triller (D/Huber Racing by TriSpa) ahead of his compatriots Stefan Rehkopf (Cito Pretiosa) and Jörn Schmidt-Staade (Cito Pretiosa).

After eight races, Olsen leads the overall classification with 161 points. Behind him in second place is Yelloly with 130 points. Zöchling has earned 108 points and ranks third. The top position in the rookie classification is occupied by Preining with 152 points. And Triller is the best driver in the amateur category with 96 points.
