Rocca’s teammate Stienes Longin, who sits second in the ELITE 1 Division standings, ended up fourth by clocking a 1:41.972 lap in Superpole. Jacques Villeneuve showed a promising pace in Qualifying but couldn’t reach his full potential in Superpole and will start from fifth position. The Canadian was happy with the performance of his Go Fas Racing Chevrolet and sees more opportunities for the races.
Lucas Lasserre finished a positive sixth ahead of Thomas Ferrando, who is racing for CAAL Racing at the NASCAR GP Czechia this weekend. The Frenchman posted his best result since the season opener and edged Sebastiaan Bleekemolen, who advanced to Superpole for the very first time in his NWES career. Francesco Sini entered Superpole once again and was ninth ahead of Christophe Bouchut, who is back in Euro NASCAR with Alex Caffi Motorsport.
Henri Tuomaala also was among the top-12 qualifiers, securing the eleventh position on the grid. That makes him the fastest Challenger Trophy driver in ELITE 1 Division at the 4.222 kilometer long Autodrom Most. Brands Hatch race winner Frederic Gabillon was twelfth. Three-time NWES champion and Valencia double race winner Ander Vilarino only ended up 15th quickest.
