Remaining the only driver of 2022 to take pole position from a qualifying session, Norbert Kiss will start the first Slovakia Ring race from the front of the grid.

As part of the usual feature to progress into Super Pole, Kiss’ closest competitors of Sascha Lenz and Jochen Hahn looked ready to put the pressure on the championship leader. Once again showing a masterclass in the red Revesz Racing machine, Kiss was untouchable, claiming pole by over 1.1 seconds. His 2:42.168 was the only lap time to breech the 2m42s.

The battle remained for who would join Kiss on the front row, and it was Lenz who took the advantage after the first two flying laps. Although some drivers bailed on their third and final attempts, Hahn pushed Lenz all the way to the end of the session, setting a time exactly two tenths slower than the #2 truck. Lenz’s 2:43.366 was enough to line him up directly beside his main championship rival in P2. 

Currently fourth in the championship, Adam Lacko lines up fourth on the grid for the first race of the weekend with Steffanie Halm closing out the top five. Antonio Albacete and Andre Kursim finished the top seven and the Titan class drivers who made it through to Super Pole. 

Promoter’s Cup sees a new pole sitter as Jose Rodrigues outpaced class leading rivals Shane Brereton and Teo Calvet to first in class (eighth overall). His 2:45.221 was enough to give him provisional class pole at the start of Super Pole, a position the Portuguese driver would not give up. 

Brereton starts ahead of Calvet, having beaten the French driver by a tenth of a second, the entire Promoter’s Cup top three covered by less than two tenths.

Jamie Anderson just missed out on a Super Pole appearance and will start 11th for today’s first race. The Brit had a half a second advantage -placed Steffen Faas with his 2:45.113. 

Race-by-race entry Luis Recuenco finished , ahead of Clemens Hecker, but due to technical issues that saw the Spanish driver miss second practice he will start at the back of the grid, promoting Hecker to 13th.

Still suffering his shoulder injury, Rene Reinert will not content in this weekend’s event and Hungaroring stand in Martin Gibson will also not be on track, seeing the #77 Reinert Racing truck sitting out of the Slovakia Ring event.
