Eriksson did not put all his efforts but he successfully achieved the pole position in last instance after a magnificent lap.
By: Andreu Rius
Session started under full rain. The track was so wet and it was difficult for the drivers to make good laps. After five minutes of activity Mitch Gilbert had an accident and session had to be interrupted.
After the track was clear, the qualifying was restarted. Drivers left the pit lane with 26 minutes for doing a good lap. Despite the bad weather sun was shining again. Eriksson had the best time (2:07.650) followed by Mardenborou, Urrutia and Stoneman. But that did not last for long as Lynn then set the best time. Now it was Yelloly’s time to grab the first position with a 2:06.805.
At the last minutes drivers were faster so positions changed a lot. Lynn was first again while Kirchhof was second and Zapmparelli third. Fourth position was for Mardenborou and fifth Bernstorff. Balthasar was out of classification because of an accident with no consequences.
When the session finished Eriksson, who did not show up until his last lap, got the pole position with a 2:05.322 followed by Lynn and Kirchhof.
