Over five rounds of qualifying the battle has ebbed and flowed between multiple drivers, however the pre event favourites picked out shared the spoils for TQ, however Friday at the Euros belongs to Robert Batlle as he stepped up and smashed a run in some 5 secs quicker than the nearest challenger.

Heat 1 saw David Ronnefalk turn in a decent run of 8/ 5:26.176, fast but it didn’t look as rapid as his Q4 run which was cut short, up stepped Elliott Boots, if he went faster he would TQ. And he did, despite a minor rollover in the back section, Boots 1.4 secs faster than Ronnefalk – it looked like TQ was settled, going the way of the Brit.

But fastest man in Q4, Robert Batlle hadn’t read that script and caused a collective jaw drop as he set the track alight with a time of 8/5:18.801, having opted to switch from AKA impact super soft to soft clearly worked a treat as the sun came out for his heat and he found a sweet spot. Put into perspective with an average laptime of 39.850 over 8 laps simply put a most excellent display of driving, earning Robert envious praise from even his toughest competitors.
