Kurzbuch Top Qualifier in German as qualifying cut short by rain

Kurzbuch Top Qualifier in German as qualifying cut short by rain

Simon Kurzbuch is Top Qualifier for tomorrow’s second round of the Euro Nitro Series after rain cut short qualifying in Germany.  With four runs of qualifying originally planned, the arrival of rain towards the end of Q3 left the already under pressure timetable unable to fit in a fourth round, a 20:00 curfew on the running of engines at Minidrom Ettlingen adding to the difficulties of running a full schedule.  With Kurzbuch TQ’ing the opening two qualifiers and Q4 scrapped, the Team Shepherd driver can’t be denied pole position for tomorrow’s 45-minute A-Main and the important bonus championship point it carries.  Running up as far as the third fastest 1:8 heat run before ran brought Day 2 to a premature finish, the organisers hope to complete Q3 in the morning by running the remaining three heats in order to have two from three rounds determine the grid.  If that doesn’t prove possible then 1 of 2 will count which would leave Dario Balestri second on the grid followed Jilles Groskamp and Bruno Coelho.
