Jochen Hahn has continued the winning streak started by his son Lukas Hahn yesterday, taking his first pole position of the season for Race Three of his home event.

Norbert Kiss was on track to retain his unbroken run of pole positions in 2022 when a black smoke issue in Super Pole saw his lap times deleted. The Hungarian driver had set a provisional pole time of 1:53.361 but was handed a black and orange technical flag for black smoke coming out of the #1 Révész Racing. 

As per the Goodyear FIA ETRC regulations, any truck emitting black smoke must come into the pits and adjust their settings. Due to this technical infringement that was not resolved before the end of Super Pole, Kiss had all of his Super Pole lap times deleted, dropping him to tenth on Race Three’s starting grid. 

This meant the 1:53.667 set by Jochen Hahn was enough to give him pole position over Sascha Lenz with a two tenth advantage. This also gives the German crowd a front row lock out of home favourites for the penultimate race of the weekend. Hahn and Lenz have been in a tight battle for second in the championship all year, so it should be an exciting race between the two of them. 

Adam Lacko will start third having narrowly been beaten by Lenz in Super Pole, with Antonio Albacete lining up fourth beside him. A great session from Steffi Halm places her fifth, closing out the top five and placing three German drivers in the first five spots on the grid. 

Téo Calvet continues his return to good form with another Promoter’s Cup pole position, starting sixth overall. André Kursim will act as a buffer for the Frenchman to his Chrome challengers, starting seventh, with Shane Brereton and Lukas Hahn closing out the top nine and Super Pole positions. 

Jose Rodrigues was the driver to just miss out on a Super Pole performance and will start eleventh on the grid. However, with Brereton and Hahn both on the row ahead, he is still in the mix for a chance to challenge for a Promoter’s Cup podium. Anthony Janiec’s difficult weekend continued with a twelfth-place finish in qualifying.

Steffen Faas, Luis Recuenco, Clemens Hecker, Emma Mäkinen and Stefan Kursch round off the starting grid, with Jamie Anderson and Ewan Kleinnagelvoort not taking part in the session. Anderson is expected to start from the back of the grid in Race Three after suffering a power steering issue that prevented him from taking part in qualifying. 

Kleinnagelvoort has retired from the second day of racing with heavy damage to his engine, damage that saw the Scania driver prematurely end Race Two dumping fluids on track and going off into the gravel trap at the final chicane. 

Race Three promises a tight battle in Promoter’s Cup, action between Jochen Hahn and Lenz as well as Kiss climbing up through the field after being excluded from Super Pole. Lights go out at 13:40 local time and this will certainly be a race you don’t want to miss.
