With one of the narrowest margins the Goodyear FIA ETRC has seen all season, Norbert Kiss just beat Sascha Lenz to pole for the second qualifying session at Autodrom Most.

The Super Pole session did not start well for Norbert Kiss, giving his competitors a hope that he could be beaten to the second pole position of the weekend. Although he wasn’t, Sascha Lenz put in a strong lap to end only 0.086s behind the Hungarian.

Heading out for his first lap in Super Pole, Kiss made a mistake going into Turn 1, making it not worth finishing. It was with two minutes left on the clock that the championship leader returned to the circuit to set his first and only Super Pole lap time. His 2:01.389 painted the timing screen purple, but Lenz was just behind him on track, going faster in sector one.

The German gave it everything he could, but missed out on beating Kiss to pole by 0.089s, one of the closest pole position margins the Goodyear FIA ETRC has seen this year.

Jochen Hahn finished third, half a second behind the leading duo, ahead of Antonio Albacete (who was second in the first stage of qualifying) and Adam Lacko, completing the top five.

Steffi Halm will start Race Three sixth on the grid ahead of the four Chrome drivers to progress to Super Pole: Téo Calvet (Promoter’s Cup Pole Position), José Rodrigues, Jamie Anderson and Lukas Hahn.

Steffen Faas brought out a short red flag delay when his tankpool24-Racing Scania came to a halt between Turn 8/9. The truck seemed ok from the outside, but Faas reported that there was an issue with the steering, meaning he could turn left but not right. The team will do their best to repair the issue ahead of Race Three so he can take his13th place behind André Kursim and Shane Brereton.

Jonathan André finished his second qualifying session of the ETRC 14th, but is already showing great signs of improvement with his fastest lap only three tenths slower than Brereton, two tenths slower than Faas.
