Topi Heikkinen claims TQ spot for round seven

Topi Heikkinen ended qualifying for round seven of the 2019 TitansRX season top of the charts after claiming a brace of heat wins.

The Finn took second place to fellow title contender Timmy Hansen in their Q1 race, before going on to dominate on track in Q2 and Q3.

Kevin Hansen, who finished second on track in each of his three heat races, claimed second overall, ahead of the returning Hayden Paddon who won his Q2 heat and was consistently in the top-five time-wise throughout the morning.

Jerome Grosset-Janin rounded out a strong qualifying run with a Q3 race win on his way to fourth overall, while Andrew Jordan overcame illness that led to him sitting out of practice to complete the top-five.

Although ‚CsuCsu‘ won the his heat race in Q1, contact in Q2 and Q3 prevented him from finishing higher than sixth. He did beat Timmy Hansen, who took out the Hungarian in Q2 after his throttle stuck open going into the penultimate turn.

Timmy Hansen won his Q1 race, setting the fastest overall time in the process, but retirement in Q2 as a result of the contact with ‚CsuCsu‘ set his charge back considerably.

Ronny C’Rock finished qualifying in eighth place overall, one spot ahead of Tamara Molinaro who spun in Q1 and made heavy contact with Craig Breen in Q3. She did however finish a strong second to the Irishman on the road in Q2.

Reini Sampl enjoyed his best qualifying of the season so far. He took his first heat win of the year in Q1, then followed that up with two more strong runs in Q2 and Q3 to advance to finish tenth and advance to the semi-final stage.

Oliver Webb and Breen were the final two drivers to advance to the semi-finals, with Abbie Eaton, Perry McCarthy, and Andreas Steffen all missing out.
