Markus Pommer scored his fourth position of the season at the Nürburgring, as he tamed his home racetrack at the end of a wet Auto GP qualifying session at the German venue. Super Nova International driver, who logged the pole lap in 1:37.288, led the Q2 session in front of Kevin Giovesi (FMS), who had cruised to top in the opening practice session earlier this morning.
The second row will be shared in Race 1 by Tamas Pal Kiss and Michela Cerruti as the Italian female racer replicated her best qualifying efforts of the year at Budapest and Monza. Lining-up in row 3, Andrea Roda will pair Francesco Dracone. The start of the session was delayed to barrier repairs, followed by a rainfall that lasted for the whole qualifying session.
The biggest surprise was the elimination of championship leader Kimiya Sato in Q1. In the first half of the segment, the Euronova Racing Japanese driver suffered from brake issues. With three minutes left He then went off-track in sector 1, bringing out a red flag that cut the action short by two minutes.
