Haatanen takes opening qualifier at EOS finale

Joona Haatanen has taken the opening 2WD qualifier at the season finale of the Euro Offroad Series at Arena33 in Germany.  The Team Associated driver posted the fastest time ahead of Bruno Coelho after the Xray driver had a moment on his final lap that would cost him 1-second, the separation just under 6/10ths.  With most drivers having errors over the 5-minutes, Neil Cragg would get it wrong on the opening lap but a good drive for the remainder of the qualifier picked him up a P3 ahead of Daniel Kobbevik and Lee Martin.  For top seed Joern Neumann, a good first lap led the Schumacher driver to push harder on his second lap leading to a mistake with subsequent errors leaving him with a P8 for Q1.
