Groskamp fastest in Q1

Continuing the blistering form he showed in practice, Capricorn’s Jilles Groskamp got qualifying for the 1:10 Nitro Touring Car World Championships underway with a convincing TQ run in what were extremely hot conditions in Bangkok, Thailand.  The Dutch ace ran 39-laps in a time of 10:08.998 to top arch rival Atsushi Hara by 3/10ths of a second who in turn was 2 seconds clear of HB team-mate Teemu Leino.  The biggest surprise of the opening qualifier was the impressive run from 14-year-old Mugen driver JJ Wang who posted the fourth fastest time a second off Leino’s pace.
