Bayer takes Q3, all to play for in final qualifier

Martin Bayer finally delivered a TQ run at the EOS third round to set the stage for a ‘winner takes all’ final qualifier at the Hudy Arena.  Bayer became the third different driver to post a TQ run in 2WD qualifying, topping Q3 ahead of Q2 pace setter Michal Orlowski.  Having topped the opening qualifier and lost out on a repeat of that with a last lap mistake in Q2, Neil Cragg struggled as he ran out of tyres in the penultimate qualifier leaving Associated team-mate Joona Haatanen to take up the mantle and put in his first Top 3 run.  With 2WD qualifying set to be concluded tonight in Slovakia, it is a potential four way shout out to become the overall Top Qualifier with Lee Martin joining Bayer, Cragg and Orlowski as potential pole sitters for tomorrow morning’s triple A-Mains.
