The third round of 2WD qualifying at the EOS Season opener saw the duel between Michal Orlowski and Lee Martin continue with the duo again having the edge over the field at the Nurburgring. With a TQ run a piece going into the penultimate qualifier, it was Orlowski who was first to double up as the Schumacher driver laid down the fastest 5-minute time of the day joining Martin as the only drivers to complete 19-laps. Setting the fastest lap of Q3, Martin’s Yokomo would end up almost 5-seconds off the TQ pace after a costly 19-second last lap from the British driver. Producing his best run so far Joona Haatanen would complete the Top 3 as the best of the drivers to run 18-laps. Behind the Associated driver Jörn Neumann, Neil Cragg and Daniel Kobbevik completed the Top 6.
