Orlowski to start home event from pole position

Michal Orlowski will chase a home victory in Warsaw, Poland tomorrow from pole position having ended qualifying on top, with 3 TQs from an available 4. Bruno Coelho who managed to reign in the mistakes seen in the opening 2 qualifiers took the top spot in Q3 and backed it up with 3rd in the final round to start 2nd on the grid for tomorrow morning’s triple A-mains. Lee Martin will start from 3rd on the grid ahead of Joona Haatanen and Daniel Kobbevik in 4th & 5th respectively, with former champion Jorn Neumann, Neil Cragg, the impressive Jessica Palsson, Paul Crompton and Joel Valander completing the Top 10. Talking to pole sitter Orlowski, who completed the home double two years ago at the same venue, he said of his 3rd and 4th qualifiers ‘it was good in Q3, I went on the 3rd run tires, the carpet is quite old so the tire wear is quite high so to be sure for the last one we went on the new set of tires.’ Continuing ‘the car felt good but slightly understeering so I will think about a small change for tomorrow. But it is going good so far.’
