Pommer claims second pole in a row
Markus Pommer scored at Monza his second pole in a row in the Auto GP. The Super Nova driver finished in front of rookie Christofer von Grunigen (Zele Racing). The Swissman, making his debut showed he’s up to a new and demanding challenge. Row 2 will be shared by to home representatives, Kevin Giovesi (Eurotech) and Michela Cerruti. Driving for Super Nova, the Italian female racer repeated Budapest’s good qualifying showing.
Hungarian Tamas Pal Kiss (Zele Racing) will be called to a comeback race to keep his championship rival Pommer at bay, and to capitalize from the absence of championship leader Kimiya Sato. Kiss will share Row 3 with Andrea Roda (Virtuosi UK), while Euronova’s Japanese combo of Shinya Michimi and Yoshitaka Kuroda round out Row 4. The top-10 on the grid will be completed by Michele La Rosa (MLR71 by Euronova) and Giuseppe Cipriani (Ibiza Racing Team).
Three drivers did not make it to Q2. Francesco Dracone, driving also for Super Nova, Loris Spinelli (Eurotech) and newcomer Samin Gomez (Zele Racing).
