After a collision between the two Swiss Racing Team Lamborghini's, the team decided to miss the Tourist Trophy as they could not repair the damage in time for the weekend. DKR Engineering returned to the grid with the one car after missing the Sachsenring round due to lack of spare parts available. Markus Palttala and Andreas Zuber return to the series. Palttala returns behind the wheel of a Ford GT replacing Yann Clairay in the No. 10 Belgian Racing machine, racing alongside Antoine Leclerc. He raced a full season for Marc VDS Racing Team in 2010.
