Description The classic STW final race of 1999 at the Nurburgring. This decided the championship that year. During the last lap of the race at Nurburgring, Uwe Alzen, Christian Abt's main rival for the championship was leading, with Abt 2nd. As they reached the chicane Alzen was coming up to lap Abt's teammate Kris Nissen and they both crashed. Abt was now in the lead but at the last corner, Alzen's teammate Roland Asch, who was right behind the trio and had already been black flagged in the race, crashed into Abt, taking him out. Alzen limped to the checkered flag in 2nd place and handing him the championship. But not for long as several weeks later, an amateur video proved that Asch crashed into Abt deliberately, and as a result, the DMSB, the German governing body sanctioning the STW annulled the last lap of the race, handing the championship back to Abt.
