As always, Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 qualifying system is separated in two groups. Today the Group B started first.
In the group we saw only 10 cars running due to, Bruno Baptista (Manor MP Motorsport) withdraw after a nasty crash yesterday on race 1.
The track limits and a clean track was the key. And we been bear witness of a battle between Kevin Jörg (Josef Kaufmann Racing) andSimon Gachet (Tech 1 Racing). The battle has been decided for only 0.012 seconds in Gachet favor.
The Tech 1 Racing driver was on provisional pole and provisional circuit best lap of 1:32.729.
In Group A, Koiranen GP and JD Motorsport drivers, made an early lap in the circuit with old tyres, and then came back to the track with new tyres, but it hasn’t work out.
