Kassel-Calden was back to normal for the DRM; no extra entries here, all in all only seven competitive cars. Stuck was fast as usual, with his 15” works car, with Fritzinger and Jöst (the next pilot of the Bulova Capri) second and third with their 13” cars. A new combination was Barth with Aake Andersson’s car. But the practice of only 2 x 10 minutes had a surprising outcome. Jöst, who was only running in his new brakes, found himself on pole, while Stuck in full-attack mode was only third. Division 1 found Auer on pole, surprising everyone including himself. Timing, timing...

The division 2 field, 13 cars strong, was led by Menzel, followed by Schüler, Obermoser, Auer and Basche, the last one passing Auer for fourth after a while. But Basche retired in lap 18 with engine failure, like Schüler who retired with a broken gearbox. When Auer lost his engine too, the field was reduced to 5 cars, of which Obermoser reached the finish very slowly (rear axle problems) just ahead of an ageing Porsche.

The clouds were threatening before the start of division 1. Stuck was the only one on intermediates, the rest (13 cars) stayed on slicks. After 11 laps, Stuck was 10 seconds behind Fritzinger when the first drops of rain came down. Alas, the drops never turned into rain, and Stuck fell back more and more, until Jöst was only 3 seconds behind on lap 37, but he dropped back with brake problems. A deserved victory for Fritzinger.
