FULÍN TAKES POLE AT SLOVAKIA RING

2013-04-28

1.jpgJust as on the opening race weekend in Monza, pole position for the first of tomorrow’s two ETCC races at the Slovakia Ring will be occupied by Petr Fulín, whose Super 2000 BMW 320si set the fastest lap time in Qualifying (2:16.260).

There was, however, mixed news for the Krenek Motorsport team as Fulín’s teammate Michal Matějovský went off at Turn 7 on only his first quick lap and took no further part in the session.

Fulín had previous been fastest in both the first Testing session and in Free Practice, so will clearly be the driver to beat tomorrow. He set the pole-winning time on only his second lap and then sat out much of the half-hour session to see if his rivals could better his time. The only other driver to beat the 2:17.000 barrier was Mat’o Homola (2:16.754) and so, just as in Monza, the Slovak driver will line up alongside Fulín on the grid.

The Single-Make Trophy for SEAT León Supercópa cars saw the top three covered by less than a second. Aurélien Comte (2:17.153) was the fastest SMT driver and third overall, ahead of Andreas Pfister (2:17.906) and Jordi Oriola (2:18.142).

In the Super 1600 category, Kevin Krammes claimed his second consecutive pole. The reigning champion was in a league of his own, as he improved the fastest lap three times until clocking a 2:31.968 that was enough to beat ‘Romeo Luciano’ and Ulrike Krafft.

The Ladies’ Cup saw Andrina Gugger (2:19.946) qualify in 13th place overall and 5th in Super 2000, while Ulrike Krafft (2:34.048) was 22nd overall and 3rd in Super 1600. Ksenya Niks didn’t take part in the session.

Race 1 starts at 11.35 tomorrow with Race 2 beginning at 12.40.
