Christian Engelhart was fastest and won the pole position for the Saturday’s race, however, the second was young British driver Ben Baker. The Thiim and Eng was ninth and tenth which is somewhat of disappointment but will insure a battle for the upper spots. Michael Ammermuler and Connor de Phillipi are on the fifth and sixth place and knowing their experience and potential, they could easily in position for winning.
