EOS10 R2 Worksop – 2wd Qualifying Round 3

Round 3 of 2wd qualifying pretty much picked up where round 2 left off – with lots of pace. Michal Orlowski and Neil Cragg have a TQ each and under EOS rules you can drop your two worst scores from your four attempts – so its possible that this will come down to fastest times if nobody else gets involved.

Challengers

Looking at the pace of the top heats – any of Johnny Skidmore, Lee Martin, Joona Haatanen ,, Tommy Hall & Ben Smith could put in a TQ run – so its not all stitched up yet. Daniel Kobbevik has shown flashes of brilliance but has yet to be super fast and super consistent. And another driver worth mentioning is Pekko Iivonen who is gathering speed as the day progresses – he could make it to main also.


2wd Qualifying Round 3

As the hall was warmed up – thanks Muz for turning the heating on for a while – the times tumbled and over 15 drivers made it onto 15 laps. The last man onto 15 laps was Kobbevik from heat 10 – the young Norwegian absolutely flying. The top ten is tailed off with drivers all around the 15/310 mark – and there isn’t much between them, the warm track now some 20 seconds faster than first thing this morning.

So its Orlowski x 2 TQ, Cragg x 1 TQ. Cragg will need a TQ in round 4 on a time at least as quick as 15/303.
