Rookie Tramnitz fights for podium
But then Edgar found a gap, squeezed through on the inside of the start-finish straight and took his second win in race two.
Third place went to Tim Tramnitz (US Racing), sponsored by the ADAC Sports Foundation, who also showed a great overtaking maneuver in the fight for the podium.
Joshua Dürksen from ADAC Berlin-Brandenburg eV made an early start after his second place on Saturday and was left empty-handed after a drive-through penalty.
Rain showers lead to a race being stopped
After a rain shower, Edgar only managed to finish seventh in race three, even though he had previously fought his way up to second place.
The victory went to the Finn Elias Seppänen, who was at the top at the time of the race break due to the heavy rain.
His US racing teammate Victor Bernier took second place ahead of Russian Kirill Smal (R-ace GP), who was also the best rookie in the race.
The race was particularly annoying for the Russian Vlad Lomko, who touched the wall with his US racing car in still dry conditions and sustained damage to the suspension.
Despite seventh place, Edgar defended his lead in the overall standings with 56 points. Seppänen came in second with 44 points. Hamburg’s Tim Tramnitz is the best rookie in fourth place.
