Starting with a 14 place finish in race one Schafer didn't seem to be able to defend his title but following a score-line that included a first, second and two thirds in the following races he and his crew Andreas MADER produced an awesome comeback.
Second place also went to Germany with Rolf BAEHR and Thomas OLBRICH from Berlin, only three points behind Shaefer. Third place went to the Swiss team of Pierre MAEDER and Andreas DIETRICH.
Now the class is looking forward to their next world championship in La Rochelle, France in 2004 and to their 40th anniversary in 2005. Full results are available on the event website at the address below.
