Mächler TQ’s opening Pro Stock qualifier at ETS Daun

Max Mächler took a close opening Xray Pro Stock class qualifier at the Euro Touring Series second round in Daun, Germany.  The Awesomatix driver went up against Xray pairing Mustafa Alp and Jan Ratheisky, all three taking turns at setting the TQ pace.  Securing his first ETS win last season in Italy, Mächler would recover from an early mistake stop the clock with a 2/10ths of a second advantage over top seed Alp helped by the fact reigning champion & fastest man on the track Ratheisky also suffered an costly mistake on his 4th lap.

In the Scorpion Power System Formula class it was reigning champion David Ehrbar who would take the opening TQ.  Third fastest in practice, the Serpent driver took Q1 by over 2-seconds from top seed Ben Cosgrove with Olivier Bultynck completing the Top 3.  Having dominated the season opener, taking the win ahead of Ehrbar, Ratheisky isn’t having as good a start to his home round with him only 8th fastest in seeding and not improving much in the qualifier ending up 6th.  With the entry for the new Infinity 40+ class more than double what it was in Vienna, Ozer Yürüm took the first of the four qualifiers ahead of Michael Spiering with Round 1 winner Miko Peter fourth quickest.
