Orlowski makes hard work of Rd2 TQ
It was more of the same in the second round of qualifying here at EOS Poland, however reigning champion Michal Orlowski had to work hard for the TQ this round having lost a lot of time in a crash at the mid way point while leading. Lee Martin would once again take 2nd for the round, less than one second back, in front of the Team Associated pairing of Joona Haatanen and Neil Cragg in 3rd and 4th, with Swedish Kyosho driver Jessica Palsson completing the top 5. Describing his run, Michal said ‘It started off really good, I looked at my lap times and I had really low 19s, I had a cushion but made a mistake on the wall’. Continuing, ‘I was stuck on the pipe and then after followed Lee around trying to push as hard as possible to put pressure on him and he made a mistake and rolled over before the double so then I just tried to make the gap to go to the lead and it took about 2 laps’. Ending by saying ‘it wasn’t a clean run, it was way tougher than the first one but luckily in the end it was another TQ so looking good so far.’
