Norbert Kiss had his lap times from qualifying and Super Pole cancelled, putting him at the back of the grid and leaving Jochen Hahn clear for a lights-to-flag victory.
A Parc Fermé infringement disrupted the promise of a battle between Kiss and Hahn during the third race at Zolder, leading to an incident-free victory for the German. He made it look easy, pulling away from second-placed Adam Lacko to finish three seconds down the road from the rest of the grid.
Although Antonio Albacete looked to be making a charge on Lacko for second on the podium, the Czech driver maintained about a second advantage throughout the 12 laps of racing, securing his second podium of the weekend.
Even though Kiss had to start from the back, he had a phenomenal run through the grid to end fourth at the chequered flag, under three seconds off the podium. He had some daring overtakes, utilising every inch of tarmac available, and his aggressive driving got him up past championship rival Lenz and to a great recovery of points.

In the final race of the Zolder weekend, Norbert Kiss stormed through the field to take the chequered flag first and extend his championship lead.
The Hungarian driver was on a mission from the moment the lights went green, taking only five corners to get himself into the lead of the race. A great start saw him third before Turn 1, and his pace advantage on Téo Calvet and Shane Brereton had him disappearing into the distance at the end of the first lap. No one could challenge Kiss, and although second-place finisher Adam Lacko was running at a very similar pace, it wasn’t enough to put pressure on the Hungarian.
Lacko also had a great start and spent a few laps fighting with Steffi Halm before he could pass her for second on the track. He had started closing down Kiss in the final stages of the race, but it was too little too late and the Czech had to settle for the silver trophy.
Another incredible drive came from Téo Calvet who, after taking another third in the overall order, claimed his fourth GOODYEAR Cup victory of the weekend. This clean sweep of class wins has put Calvet ahead in the championship, holding a strong lead with three events left to go.
