Q2 Update – Neumann benefits from unsighted Orlowski to TQ

Joern Neumann has TQ’d the second round of qualifying at EOS Austria, the Schumacher driver benefiting from his team-mate Michal Orlowski being unsighted coming off the wall section by a marshal resulting in contact with the car he was attending to. Taking the opening qualifier last night, Orlowski looked on target for another TQ run with a comfortable advantage over his rivals at the 4-minute mark but the incident sent him off the track.  He said, ‘I saw the car crash as I entered the wall but when I came out the marshal was there and I had to change my line to avoid him but he was blocking my view of the car and I hit it’.  The Pole would still end up third fastest having had to be marshalled after his car ended up outside the track. It was Bruno Coelho who set the 2nd fastest time, the reigning champion having the fastest car on track but suffering an early mistake that cost him over 2-seconds.  Building on his strong showing in Q1, Sworkz driver Martin Wollanka completed the Top 4.
