Round three of qualifying here in Apeldoorn is completed and we have our first overall TQ in the ToniSport 40+ Masters class.
Hagberg takes eventful Q3
Alexander Hagberg (Xray) won the third round of qualifying here in the Netherlands with a comfortable gap of 1.5 seconds ahead of Yannic Prümper (Yokomo) and Michele Manzo (Awesomatix). Eric Dankel (Mugen Seiki) scored some very important points finishing fourth for the round and Robert Pietsch (Mugen Seiki) crossed the line in the fifth spot.
During the run we saw Mugen Seiki`s Ronald Völker and Awesomatix Marc Rheinard being the early leaders in front of Hagberg, but after Rheinard went too wide at the end of the main straight he spun around and found his car stopping in the gras. This handed the lead over to Völker who was in a close fight with Hagberg in some hundreds of a second but Völker also made a small mistake which let him drop down the ranking list. Hagberg scored important points for himself and the Xray team in this third round!
Mächler the third different TQ
The third round of qualifying in the Xray ProStock class saw Max Mächler taking away the win with his Awesomatix in front of the Xray duo of Alexandre Duchet (2) and Lukas Ellerbrock (3). Nicolai Lindegaard placed his Schumacher in fourth position and Awesomatix driver Louis Kretschmer crossed the line being fifth fastest.
The overall TQ is still wide open with a small advantage for Duchet (by points) and we will see the decision in the last round of qualifying of the Xray ProStock class.

TQ wide open as Schulz takes Q3
Stefan Schulz finally found his rhythm back and was able to snatch away the win in Q3 from Steven Olsen by 0.164 seconds. Manuel Stankowitz finished third this time in front of Mischa Kroos and Henrik Heitsch.
With having a different TQ in all of the three rounds so far, the overall TQ is still wide open and Q4 will show who will be the lucky guy lining up first for the triple A-Mains on Sunday here in Apeldoorn at ETS RD3.

Orca Stock 17.5
Kuschnarew TQ´s round 3 of Qualifying
David Kuschnarew was the fastest driver on track in round 3 of qualifying in the Orca 17.5 Stock class. He took the win in front of Dominik Reile and Maximilian Unterschütz. For Unterschütz it was the best run of the weekend as he was really close to the leaders on the track. Roman Borschel and Thomas Bemmerl completed the top 5.
The decision for the overall TQ is now between Q1 and Q2 winner Dominik Reile and round 3 TQ David Kuschnarew and we will see the result after the last round of qualifying here in Apeldoorn!

ToniSport 40+ Masters
Sievers on Pole in Apeldoorn
Elibert Sievers took another impressive win in round 3 of qualifying in the ToniSport 40+ Masters class. He was able to win three out of three heats to secure himself a very hard fought pole position for Sundays triple A-Mains.
We talked to Elibert after his deciding TQ run:
I am more than happy with the runs I did here at my second ever ETS race. For sure it is an advantage that this is my home track but two years ago I was running in the B-Main and now I am the overall TQ which is amazing for me. For the finals I hope to stay calm as I expect a lot of pressure from the guys behind me but all I want to have is the maximum amount of fun in the end!
Behind Sievers, a much-improved Flavio Paladin finished second for the round in front of Thomas Oehler, Andy Kühne and Werner Schmitzer.
