It was the best event for the ZN6 chassis, it was the final round of this year and track configuration was probably the toughest ever for the cars and drivers combining one 180 degree wall ride and another 270 degree wall ride. Cars and engines broke down left and right and noone could predict the outcome of this event as three top drivers were after the championship title.
