ETCC ace Fulin puts it on pole in Slovakia

Czech driver Petr Fulin overcame his set-up issues from yesterday to put his SEAT León Cup Racer on pole at the Slovakia Ring, and give himself the best possible chance to win the opening FIA European Touring Car Cup race tomorrow.

Fulin beat local hero Mato Homola to top spot on the tight and technical Slovakia Ring, with Dušan Borković third. All three are eligible for the Single Make Trophy.

Georgian driver Davit Kajaia continued his domination of the TC2T class to claim sixth overall on tomorrow’s grid with his BMW. This weekend, Kajaia is supporting charitable actions to aid the victims of the recent floods in Georgia, and his performance gave full credit to this worthy cause.

In the non-turbocharged TC2 category, Michal Matejovský continued his strong performance, placing his older BMW ninth overall in the session. 

The least powerful class is Super 1600, but Germany’s leading up-and-coming female racer, Ulrike Krafft, drove with superb commitment to set a winning time and line up 15th overall on the grid.

There will be two FIA ETCC races tomorrow: starting at 10h05 and 11h10, with a standing and a rolling start respectively. Both races will last nine laps, and the grid for race two will be formed of the top eight finishers from race one reversed.
