Reno Francot from Jenzer Motorsport didn’t put a foot wrong during the opening sprint race at the Automotodrom Brno circuit. He won from pole position, leading from the first to the last lap.
Starting third on the grid, Ethan Ischer had the best start from the entire field and attacked his teammate Reno Francot. However, the championship leader remained in first place.
Ischer followed Francot very closely, trying to find a gap for a pass. Their fight was an opportunity for Michael Sauter from Sauter Engineering, who raced closely behind them. They were followed by Mathias Jakobsen (Jenzer Motorsport), Oliver Michl (Gender Racing Team), Max Karhan (Jenzer Motorsport), and Roman Roubíček (JMT Racing).
After a couple of laps, the gaps grew a little bit, but no more than one second between the top four drivers: Francot, Ischer, Sauter, and Jakobsen. Sauter held the fastest lap of the race, which he set in the second lap, as the tires degraded very quickly at the Automotodrom Brno circuit. Personal bests are mainly achieved in the first or second lap.
Francot crossed the finish line as the winner, with Ischer and Sauter joining him on the podium. Jakobsen finished fourth, Michl was fifth, and local Czech drivers Karhan and Roubíček finished seventh and eighth, respectively.
