Turkington eighth and ”Flash” ninth in Knutstorp qualifying

Postat av Johan Meissner kl 17:25

Colin Turkington made it from the first qualifying session with the sixth fastest time, but lost to eighth in the second qualifying session.
”I will have to try and do as I did at Jyllandsringen and get a strong result in the second race,” said Turkington.

Jan ”Flash” Nilsson missed the second qualifying session with 71 thousands of a second and is going to start ninth in the race tomorrow.
”We had technical problems in practice again unfortunately, this time with a damper. But you have to deliver on all levels in order to be in the top, I will be back tomorrow, that is for sure,” said ”Flash”.

Turkington was just two tenths from fastest time in the first qualifying session, a gap that grew to nearly seven tenths in the second qualifying session.
”Unfortunately I had to use both sets of new tyres to make it from Q1 and it is hard to be fast in Q2 with used tyres. But I am hopeful for tomorrow, we have got a really good race setup,” said Turkington.

The first race of the day starts at 13.05 CET tomorrow, followed by the second race at 15.35.
