Völker is TQ at Arena33
The last round of modified qualifying saw Mugen Seiki`s Ronald Völker on top of the game for a third time this weekend. He denied Rheinard`s last chance for the overall TQ and took Q4 by a gap of 1.8 seconds from the Awesomatix lead driver. As pole position is always an advantage, it is even bigger in the modified class where drivers normally don`t make a lot of mistakes. But multiple world champion Rheinard will not stop to fight for the win in the triple A-Mains of the Matrix Modified class. We are looking forward to a battle between two of the best touring car racers on the planet here on Sunday at Arena33.
Behind Völker and Rheinard, Yokomo`s Christopher Krapp will start third on the grid – one position higher than last time here at ETS RD1. Krapp will see the surprise of the weekend – Oliver Havranek – starting next to him as Havranek earned his best ETS qualifying result with fourth overall.

Infinity 40+ Masters
Caspar Morgen on Pole Position
After his TQ run in Q2, Caspar Morgen was able to back up his result with another win in the last round of the day. Caspar finished second here on the podium last time, starting from the back of the field in some chaotic triple A-Mains. This time he can approach the first corner with all the pack starting behind him.
With Werner Schmitzer and Torsten Baggendorf we will see two very experienced guys starting right behind Caspar Morgen and they will try everything they can to get by the fast driver from Denmark. Game on in our Infinity 40+ Masters class!

Ehrbar wins the last round to line up second
David Ehrbar won the last round of qualifying in the Scorpion Formula class. With Ratheisky sitting out Q4 after he sealed the overall TQ after the first three rounds, Lukas Hoch and Renè Kölbel finished second and third for the round.
With his TQ run in Q4, Ehrbar managed to get by Lukas Hoch to line up second behind Ratheisky in the mains tomorrow. But as Lukas Hoch had some small mistakes in his last run, it will be interesting to watch if Ehrbar`s challenge will be attacking Ratheisky or defending against Hoch.
