Simon Kurzbuch took his second TQ run of the day, throwing down the only 17 lap run of the event so far, to respond in the best way possible to Dario Balestri’s Q2 TQ run. The Italian crossed the finish line in 2nd and was just less than a second ahead of a much improved Robert Pietsch in 3rd who put in his best time of the weekend. Dominic Greiner complete the quartet of World Champions at the front of the field as the Serpent driver came home 4th just ahead of engine maestro Alberto Picco.
Following a little hiccup in Q2, Leo Arnold also bounced back to take the 3rd round of qualifying in the 1/10th class. The Xray driver was joined at the top of timesheets by his team mate Alessio Mazzeo who finally managed to get in a trouble free run. Teemu Leino was next up followed by the trio of Shepherd drivers with Eduardo Escandon getting the better of his team mate Melvin Diekmann, who flamed out on the final lap and failed to finished, with Thilo Todtmann in 6th, while Jilles Groskamp ended the round in 7th. For all drivers there is one final round of qualifying this afternoon before we head straight into the lower finals.
