Norbert Kiss has taken his second pole of the weekend, beating Sascha Lenz to the top spot.

The rain that hit the track yesterday seemed a distance memory as blue skies rolled over the Slovakia Ring for the final qualifying session. It didn’t take long for Kiss to stake his claim on the circuit, topping the timing screen in both qualifying and Super Pole. The 2:42.142 surpassed the racing lap record of the track by seven tenths of a second.

Lenz tried everything to reel in the Hungarian, and he was just over a tenth slower in qualifying, looking like he might be able to take the challenge to the front in Super Pole. But the 2m42s was too much of an advantage on Lenz and the German had to settle for second.

Antonio Albacete and Steffi Halm complete the second row on the grid, with Jamie Anderson and Jochen Hahn behind them. Hahn had a difficult session, setting a time only good enough for sixth on his first outing and then failing to improve. The German showed he could overtake on track yesterday, so he’ll be hoping for more of the same this afternoon.

André Kursim finished off the Titan entrants in seventh.

Despite having his first Super Pole lap time deleted, José Eduardo Rodrigues once again managed to claim Promoter’s Cup Pole Position for Race Three. However, it was tight come the chequered flag, with the top three in Promoter’s Cup – who closed off the top ten and Super Pole entrants – were split by six tenths of a second.

Luis Recuenco showed great consistency, setting two lap times within a tenth of each other during the session. He starts second in Promoter’s (ninth on the overall grid) ahead of Steffen Faas (who will be tenth on the overall grid, third in Promoter’s).

John Newell and Mark Taylor missed out on Super Pole, and start 11th and 12th respectively.
