Delfín Lahoz
(6th Div.III)

The rain felt over the 'circuit Municipal de la Serra de Mollerusa' made specially difficult the racing for the powerfull prototypes of the division III. Given the bad conditions of the track and the weather forecast, announcing yet more rain, drivers and stewards agreed to don't run the final so the podium was set by the starting grid position asigned following the points scored in the heats. The first position went that way to Juanjo Aranda, again among the fastest the whole weekend with his Speed Car TTR, with a win, a second and a four position in his three heats. Things tourned up a bit worse for Delfín Lahoz, who was the fastetst in qualifying but couldn't finish the first heat, which sent him to the sixth position overall despite being second and third in the other two.
