Colin Turkington qualifies eighth in Falkenberg

Postat av Johan Meissner kl 18:27

Colin Turkington got in to the second qualifying session and secured eighth on the grid for the first race of tomorrow in Falkenberg.
”I am quite happy, we found a huge chunk of time, at least three tenths and the feeling of the car is really good,” said Turkington.

Jan ”Flash” Nilsson had a far worse qualifying session and is going to start 15th tomorrow after being five tenths from the fastest time of the session.
”It was a catastrophic qualifying. The new tyres are only quick for one lap and I got a SEAT ahead of me on my fastest lap. The car started to oversteer a lot after that and I was not able to improve my time. It is going to be an incredibly though race tomorrow,” said ”Flash”.

Turkington is going to start eighth for the third time this year, just four thousands of a second from seventh, and is aiming to climb in the order tomorrow.
”The aim is not to lose any positions in the start and I think we can gain some in the race. The BMW is as we have seen in the past really strong over a race distance,” said Turkington.
