Volker goes quickest in Finland after 3 rounds

Volker goes quickest in Finland after 3 rounds

Starting the day with one more round of timed practice, it was Ronald Völker who went quickest in round 3 of qualifying. The former European Champion also made the fastest lap of the race and is the only one who has made it below 12 second with his lap time of 11.938. Teemu Leino was the second fastest with his 12.239, so you can really get the picture of how good Völker’s Yokomo is now. Völker started the first round of qualifying with amazing pace and nobody could match with his speed.

Team Tamiya´s Marc Rheinard and Viktor Wilck didn’t make any mistakes and completed in top 3. Juho Levänen, Adrian Berntsen and Christopher Krapp took next places with solid runs before Team Xray’s Teemu Leino and Alexander Hagberg who were testing different rear arms, which didn´t improve overall performance in this grip level.
