Coelho on target for home TQ after taking Q3

Bruno Coelho is looking on target for a home TQ for Xray after he posted a second TQ run in the third round of qualifying at EOS Slovakia. After errors in Q2 left with him with a P3, the Portuguese ace put in a clean consistent Q3 to top the times despite Joern Neumann setting the pace for a time before crashing and eventually going out due to a broken C-hub.  Behind Coelho, Michal Orlowski would put in another strong result despite his heat, again tenths off the TQ pace.
