Vuga takes overnight pole at EC ‘B’

Vuga takes overnight pole at EC 'B'

This week sees the European Championship for B drivers take place at the scenic, but tricky, Tolmin circuit in Slovenia. Wet weather has plagued the event so far, with only limited running taking place before todays qualifying, which saw round 1 run in near 40 degree heat, before heat 2 was abandoned due to heavy rains. With 2 more qualifying rounds left to be run it is top local racer, and EFRA GP runner up, Jernej Vuga (above) that has clinched the overnight pole position. The Mugen racer ended the day only 1 second ahead of Serpent racer Michele Romangnoli with fellow Italian Nicola Ometto, racing for Mugen in 3rd. Top Dutch racer and winner of the first 2 rounds of the Dutch Nationals, John Ermen, lines up in 4th place for Serpent.
