Dramatic STW Final 1999 - Title Decider
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.
