Kevin Hansen scoops maiden top qualifying spot at Nyirad

Points leader Kevin Hansen topped qualifying for the first time this season in round 10 at Nyirad, Hungary.

The Swede beat brother Kevin Hansen by seven points, and won his heat races in Q1 and Q3, setting the fastest overall time in each of those sessions.

Timmy Hansen won his Q2 race with the fastest time, ensuring it was a clean sweep for the Hansen clan across the board. He also set the fastest individual lap time of the day on the third lap of Q3.

Round nine top qualifier Topi Hekkinen finished third, ahead of home favourite ‚CsuCsu‘ and Abbie Eaton. Jerome Grosset-Janin was sixth, with Andreas Steffen, and the wildcard trio of Tamas Turi, Dietmar Brandt, and Werner Panhauser occupying positions nine through to 11.

Reni Sampl claimed the final transfer spot, despite a brush with the wall in Q3, leaving Ramona Karlsson and Tamara Molinaro on the sidelines.

Karlsson was leading her Q2 heat in convincing fashion until she made heavy contact with a tyre barrier, forcing an early end to her race. While she was able to get back out and win her Q3 race, the retirement severely hampered her progress.

Molinaro was forced to retire after Q2. The Italian, who is in the thick of the fight for fourth in the series standings, was punted out of the lead of her Q2 race by Eaton. The incident resulted in a penalty lap for Eaton, while Molinaro held on to claim a distant fourth.

Upon returning to the paddock it was determined that her car had sustained terminal engine damage, and she was forced to park for the remainder of the weekend.
