Robert Battle left it until the final two rounds to TQ but his crescendo ascent in qualifying will have his main rivals scratching their heads as to where he found the additional pace in the last round to TQ by over 5 seconds. A continual shift in power is how qualifying at the 2017 Euros could be described, as Elliott Boots took round 1, Davide Ongaro round 2, David Ronnefalk find a breakthrough in round 3 after coming 2nd twice and thus holding overnight TQ. But Friday’s two rounds belonged to Robert Batlle, perhaps to the slight surprise as the balance of power has shifted with track evolution.

Qualifying reports: Q5 | Q4 | Q3 | Q2 | Q1

That said, the top 4 drivers appear to have ‘an edge’, thats not to write anyone else off, but going into the event they were the clear picks from multiple racers (& us), as potential winners. Outside the top 4, Riccardo Berton is ‘best of the rest’, his points total showin him clear of Bloomfield but just off the top4, Juan Carlos Canas 7th overall whilst JQ will be pleased making it into 8th ahead of Martin Wollanka. Rounding out the top 10 is Neil ‘Fan of the track’ Cragg 😉 whilst the French Shark Reno Savoya is 11th ahead of fellow countryman Yannick Aigoin. In lucky P13 young Swedish driver Jessica Palsson, driving beautifully well to secure a direct spot in the semis on home turf, a real inspiration to girls (& boys) otu there. XRAY’s company man Martin Bayer in 14th whilst Portugal’s Carlos Duraes and Joao Figueiredo round out the direct semi qualifiers, a special note for young Hampus Berg in the 17th spot, starting top of the quarters tomorrow.
