Pommer takes maiden Auto GP pole
Markus Pommer claimed his maiden Auto GP pole at the Hungaroring. German driver set the quickest time at the end of a rain-disrupted session. This is also the fourth pole position in a row for Super Nova. From 2011, the honor went in succession to Luca Filippi, Adrian Quaife-Hobbs and Vittorio Ghirelli.
Local racer Tamas Pal Kiss scored the second fastest lap for Zele Racing and will be on the front row, while the second row will be split between Virtuosi UK’s Sam Dejonghe and Super Nova’s Michela Cerruti. Two Italians qualified in third row as reigning champion Vittorio Ghirelli, also driver for Super Nova, finished fifth, in front of Andrea Roda (Virtuosi UK).
Qualifying was suspended for 45 minutes due to hard rain, as a tough downpour hit the venue in the middle part of Q2. Yoshitaka Kuroda (Zele Racing) and Giuseppe Cipriani (Ibiza Racing Team) were already out at the end of Q1.
