Tortorici heads European 1/8TT qualifying

Tortorici heads European 1/8TT qualifying

With 3 rounds of qualifying completed at this years European 1/8th scale TT Championships in Auxerre, France, it is Italian Crono racer Davide Tortorici that is ahead on points and currently sitting in the pole position spot. His qualifying has been very consistent and would be placed in 2nd, had current European Champion Yannick Aigoin of France, not had troubles in his 3rd run, only finishing in 10th. The Xray driver is currently 2nd, just ahead of Spanish Mugen driver Daniel Vega, while in 4th its another Mugen, that of top French runner Renaud Savoya. The 5th place is currently occupied by another Spaniard, Robert Batlle, who actually set the fastest overall run time today and won the 3rd round, this result doing wonders to his overall position. The top 16 make it straight through the semi finals and the drivers now have 2 more rounds of qualifying on Friday to move themselves up the qualifying order to be in with a chance for the title come Sunday afternoon.
