Most of the drivers raced in both classes, and comparing the average lap times in each, Class 1 (modified) cars were 1.5 seconds per lap faster than Class 2 (standard) cars.
 
Class 1 Results: 1. Ashley Evans (Carrera BMW M4 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis), 2. Roy Pritchards (SCX Audi RS5 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis), 3. Ian James (SCX Audi RS5 DTM, SlotingPlus 3-D chassis). Best Visiting Driver: 4th place overall, James Noake (SCX Mercedes CK DTM, SlotingPlus chassis).
