The 2012 F1RWRS Luxembourg Grand Prix was the fourth round of the 2012 F1RWRS season and was held at the Nurburgring. The race was won from pole position by Pippa Mann driving for the Anglo-Manx Racing team. Although there were more finishers than the previous year's race at the same venue, there was still a high amount of attrition, with just 9 classified drivers.

Race Report

Pre-qualifying and Aguri Suzuki Cup

Daniel Martins and Tristan Jung topped the overall roster for pre-qualifying in a dead heat. Phoenix McAllister was third, just 0.01 seconds behind the two. Richie White missed out on qualifying for the third straight time. He was knocked out by just 0.01 seconds. 2011 champion Nathanael Spencer, racewinner Nathanael Spencer and James Davies joined him. T. Hemo Goblin also failed to qualify as his Hemogoblin Autowerks team began to show signs of collapse. Embarrassingly, Frank Zimmer was the last pre-qualifier for NAB-HRT but he made up for his mistakes by finishing in second in the Aguri Suzuki Cup. David Koczo took the victory with Giovanni Roda finishing in third.

Qualifying

Pippa Mann took pole alongside fellow championship contender Kay Lon. Daniel Melrose qualified third. Jari Kekkonen placed his ArrowTech in a surprising fourth. Dave Simpson was fifth. Most of the other positions were basically meaningless due the chaotic nature of the race.

Race

Pippa Mann won, Kay Lon came in second and Chris Dagnall finished in third. We have no idea what happened (yet).
