Ratheisky is Pro Stock Top Qualifier at ETS Daun

Jan Ratheisky is the Pro Stock Top Qualifier at Round 2 of the ETS in Daun, Germany. Posting a third TQ run in the fourth & final round, the championship leader secured his second pole position start of the season and in doing so has extended the points lead he held coming into the weekend.  With Q1 pace setter Max Mächler the only potential challenger to Ratheisky for the overall TQ going into Q4, the Awesomatix driver couldn’t match the former champion ending up 3rd for the round but holds onto second on the grid for tomorrow’s final. Suffering his second consecutive heat DNF in the final qualifier, Mustafa Alp will start third thanks to his second places in the opening two qualifiers. Behind, Frenchman Alex Kunkler and former champion Martin Hofer complete the top half of the A-Main grid.

In the Scorpion Power System Formula class, it was reigning champion David Ehrbar who came away with the TQ. Taking Q1 and 3, the Serpent driver went into the final qualifier only needing to finish ahead of Belgian Olivier Bultynck to get pole. Leading away the heat on the second lap Ehrbar made a mistake.  With his car facing the wrong way, the following Bultynck would hit him turning him facing back in the right direction and the battle was back on.  Half way in however Bultynck’s heat was over while Ehrbar put in some bad laps allowing the Xray of ETS Austria podium finisher Luke Lee to TQ the round and split the pairing on the grid by taking 2nd from Bultynck.
