Volker is Top Qualifier for ETS season opener

Ronald Volker is Top Qualifier for the opening round of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series, the German putting the top spot on the grid beyond the reach of his rivals with another TQ run in the third of the four qualifiers.  The perfect start to the defense of his 3rd consecutive ETS title, the Yokomo driver again had to work hard to put his BD7 top of the time sheets with both Alexander Hagberg and Freddy Sudhoff in the mix.  Unfortunately for Hagberg a slower car ruined his chance of forcing the overall TQ to go down to the final round of qualifying in Hrotovice. Rolling his Xray Hagberg would end up sixth with a much improved Marc Rheinard completing the Top 3 for the round.
