Q2 Update – Coelho fastest again

Bruno Coelho has brought Day 2 of the EOS at Arena33 to a close with another TQ run in 4WD.  Claiming his first 2WD race win earlier in the day, the Xray driver had to work a little harder for the TQ the second time round after a mistake on his 5th lap.  This left Team Associated’s Joona Haatanen take up the TQ pace but a mistake from the 2WD Top Qualifier would drop him to 8th for the round.  A slower round than the first by 1-second, Coelho’s advantage was also a lot less with team-mate Martin Wollanka 2.5 seconds adrift.  Although he would manage to better his P2 time from Q1, Lee Martin would end up third quickest ahead of his Yokomo team-mate Marc Rheinard, the result sure to see Rheinard make the A-Main at his home race having ended up as the BQ in 2WD.  An impressive drive from Burak Kilic, from the second fastest heat, would see the teenager making it three Yokomo’s in the Top 6 after finishing his heat behind Associated’s Neil Cragg who managed the 5th fastest time.
