The EC ‘B’ has been hit by a major thunder storm. After a rain free day yesterday (Saturday) competitors in the 1/32 finals had to contend with a damp track from over night rain but in the 1/16 B final the heavens opened up over Tolmin as a thunderstorm hit the area. Heavy rain continues to fall but racing is continuing as scheduled, however there are some concerns about lightning in the area. Serpent driver Philip Eberle (above) was the only one of the four direct qualifiers for the EC ‘B’ Main Final to brave the terrible conditions and take to the soaking wet Tolmin track. The German, who will start second on the grid, had his car in full wet settings in preparation for a what is set to be a very wet and difficult 45 minute Main Final.
