James Thompson triumphed in what was easily the best world touring car race of the year. He added a second victory to the one he earned earlier in the day. Thompson stormed through to win from eighth while BMW team mates Jorg Muller and Andy Priaulx disputed second place.
Mika Hakkinen took his second DTM victory after a chaotic race at the Lausitzring. A safety car period in the middle of the race threw the running order up in the air but the Finnish twice World Champion prevailed.
