The 2015 F1RWRS German Grand Prix was held at the Norisring in Nuremburg, Germany. It was the ninth race in the 2015 F1RWRS season.

Pre-Qualifying

Kay Lon with the Prospec team topped the session, posting 42.654. Debutant Danny van Rijkens was second in the Tropico. ArrowTech-Acuri Autosport, who was debatably unfairly sent down to the Pre-Qualifying session, easily went through with Al Faisal's replacement Shinobu Katayama fifth and Mirko Bosevic sixth. Prospec, Tropico and ArrowTech made it to the next session, despite HRT's Frank Zimmer and Revolution's Hagane Shizuka placing third and fourth, above some qualifiers.

Qualifying

In a slightly wet session, Rhys Davies claimed pole ahead of teammate Phillippe Nicolas and Pippa Mann, who was surprising many in the paddock with her surging performances. Ben Fleet, substituting for Martin McFry at Foxdale, was fifth. Championship leader Mark Dagnall was 7th. van Rijkens placed 20th in his first race. Both Alitalia cars, David Koczo and Nathanael Spencer (who subbed for Fleet) did not qualify.

Race

The race started with a massive pileup at the start of the race, causing a red flag and a restart. The second start had another first lap crash, although at a smaller scale, with Nicolas, Dagnall and Neuberg all falling victim. Rhys Davies led from the start of the race, but went off the track and took four laps to recover, losing any chance of a decent result. Pippa Mann took over the lead as a result and went on to finish the race in first, giving Aeroracing their second win this season. She was closely followed by Rosco Vantini, who went by all the madness and posted another consistent result. Ashley Watkinson collided with Jari Kekkonen and Sammy Jones during the race, before disappearing without a trace going three laps down. He was awarded Reject of the Race.
