ETS Spain Day 1 rained out

It should have been the official start of the outdoor season of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series this morning in Spain but the weather has meant otherwise.  After a day of dry free practice yesterday at the Asoger track, Round 3 of the Championship was officially set to get underway today with controlled practice and the opening round of qualifying, however rain put pay to anyone hitting the track today as racers woke up to a gloomy cloudy day in Madrid.  First making the call to wait until 14:00 local time to decide whether any racing could take place, heavy lunchtime rain forced the call that the day would be cancelled.  With weather not looking much better for tomorrow, the current call is that each driver’s fastest three consecutive laps will determine the heat order as they go directly into qualifying if the weather plays its part.  Based on Thursday’s times, drivers managing 6 rounds of practice, it was Ronald Volker who was fastest from Bruno Coelho with Freddy Sudhoff third.  Last year’s winner Alexander Hagberg found himself down in 11th.  In Pro Stock it was joint championship leaders Simon Lauter and Max Machler who set the pace ahead of Olivier Bultynck, Christian Donath and Dominic Vogl.  In Formula Jitse Miedema was quickest from Lauter and Jeremy Limoges.
