Round 2 of qualification is over and race to the TQ spot is still open in both categories.
In stock, Steffen answered to Joe taking the round in front of Manuel Wagner. Changing his gearing from 5.2 to 5.4, he didn’t like the feeling of his power package so he will revert to his previous setting.
Manuel Wagner took 2nd place of the round after a nice battle with Steffen. He made a small mistake in the last corner of the last lap trying to catch TQ honours for the round. After a change of tyres treatment duration, he feels very confident with the car and said he drove better than during the 1st round.
Taking the 3rd sport of this round after his very good opening qualifier, Joe said that he didn’t match the pace of Steffen and Manuel during this round but he will change tyres treatment for next round and hope it will allow him to keep in the fight for the overall TQ.
In modified, Ronal took another convincing TQ after another faltless run. Having changed shock oil and piston for this run, he did not find the car really better. He didn’t made any warmup lap to get the most traction during the opening laps, allowing him to improve his best lap to 11.79s.
Taking the 2nd spot of the round, Marc Fisher was quite happy with his run. Having changed a broken driveshaft on the front and his steering block, he feels quite better with the steering of the car. He now plan to make no warmup lap for next round to get the most traction out of his S411.
3rd of the round, French champion Loïc Jasmin said being 3rd was quite a holdup as his team mate Lucas Urbain made a mistake on the last laps allowing him to pass. Switching back to his practice setup, he told that the car was easier to drive but he needed to find steering to improve his pace.
