Qualifying report: Homola takes Brno ETCC pole

Qualifying report: Homola takes Brno ETCC pole

05/09/2015 17:35

Mato Homola will start round seven of the FIA European Touring Car Cup from pole position after he set the pace in Qualifying at Brno this afternoon, upstaging home favourite Petr Fulín in the process to secure his first top spot of the season.

Driving a Yokohama-shod SEAT León Cup Racer in the headlining Single Make Trophy, Homola’s fastest lap time of 2m11.253s couldn’t be beaten by his ETCC rivals during the 30-minute session. The performance earns Slovakia’s Homola three points in his quest for ETCC title glory as Fulín, who was fastest in both test sessions earlier today, had to settle for fourth.

SMT title leader Dušan Borković will join Homola on the front row of the grid for Sunday’s opening 10-lap race with Dejan Bulatović a season-best third. Borković was 0.388s adrift of Homola, who has yet to win in the ETCC in 2015.

Georgian BMW driver Davit Kajaia was fastest of the TC2T runners in fifth overall with local hero Michal Matĕjovský going quickest in TC2 in another BMW. Meanwhile, young German Niklas Mackschin couldn’t be toppled in the Super 1600 division in his Ford Fiesta.

Race one on Sunday is due to begin with a rolling start at 12h00 local time. Race two will get underway from a standing start at 13h10.
