Pole position at EOS Andernach goes to Michal Orlowski

Michal Orlowski has sealed the TQ spot here in Germany for the 5th round of the Euro Offroad Series, as he once again topped the timing sheets in the third round of qualifying putting the pole position of the reach of his competitors. His Schumacher team mate Wesley van Helmond managed a clean run to take 2nd for the round some 2 seconds back and only 1 second ahead of Joona Haatanen with Xray team mates Bruno Coelho and Hupo Honigl in 4th and 5th respectively. Orlowski said after that it ‘was very tough with the track changing every run’, continuing ‘the first laps of every run we have to learn the track again’. Admitting to making a number of mistakes, the reigning Champion switched over to the stand up transmission in Q2 and has been happier since.
