EOS10 R2 Worksop – 4wd Qualifying Round 2

We prepared ourself extra early on the third morning of the EOS at Worksop to ensure we captured some of the Modified Truck Racing. Just after 8am the single heat of trucks ran and it was Wesley van Helmond who dominated the heat. We have a video posted on our Youtube channel – www.youtube.com/racewayone.

4wd qualifying Round 2

The ambient temperature around the circuit is much cooler this morning than previous mornings as there was a clear sky last night. An impressive meteor shower was on display last night as we arrived back to our hotel. The lower temperature has led to less bite from the surface and drivers in the early heats looked a little uncomfortable.

The first driver on onto the lead laps this morning was Edward Callan in heat 7 with a 16/319.66. Edward put in a solid but cautious run and he won’t be unhappy with that time. He was followed home by Ben Simpson and Matt Thomson only a few seconds behind. Callan going 10th in round.

The pace heated up in heat 8 and it was Johnny Skidmore who set the pace in that with a 16/314.06. Skidmore is pushing on, but the car is fighting back and several bad landings and tips off apexes cost him. Jamie Hall put in a consistent and fast run to log 16/316.90 in second – the remainder of the heat not making it on 16 laps.

All eyes were on the top heat to see if Lee Martin could repeat his round 1 TQ. Lee got off to a pacey but cautious start with no errors. Joona Haatanen and Micha Widmaier featured earlier on in the heat, relegating Martin to as low as third fastest at one point, however, Martin upped his pace in the mid to later stages of the heat and started to bang in constant 18 second laps. He returned to the front of the heat by the end on a 16/307.92 – some 3.5 seconds clear of Widmaier in second.

This is Lee Martin’s second TQ in 4wd and its on a fast pace, but as the venue warms the pace will increase. Martin really needs one more TQ to remove all doubt about securing pole position for the A Main.
