Timerzyanov gets Supercar pole. Larsson and Bakkerud fastest
A convincing race win over Tanner Foust propelled Timur Timerzyanov to fastest time in the second heat and allowed the Russian racer to write his name on pole position for the Supercar A final before lunchtime on the second day of the Belgian ERC round. Foust was first into the Joker Lap in the opening tour, Timerzyanov leading the race from the start leaving his pass through the detour until the final lap, emerging still in the lead of the race and completing the remaining half lap to take the second win. Davey Jeanney won a fast and clean race ahead of Liam Doran and Michael De Keersmaecker, the latter pair placing fifth and sixth in the heat, split from Jeanney by Stig-Olov Walfridson who had a win in one of the earlier races to go fourth. The only retirement in the heat was François Duval who parked his Peugeot in the third lap.
Robin Larsson topped the TouringCar order after a rare mistake from Roman Castoral who half-spun while leading and slumped to seventh fastest. Anton Marklund was again second fastest, beating third fastest Koen Pauwels in his race while Derek Tohill drove around further engine problems but got his Fiesta to the finish with sixth fastest time.
A clear race win helped Andreas Bakkerud to fastest time in Super1600, race winner Krzysztof Skorupski ahead of Joni Wiman, Teemu Suninen and Christian Petrakovits holding the next four places at the end of the heat. Marklund and Wiman lead the classes after two heats, but pole remains to be decided in the third heat.
Magda Andersson won the third JRX heat, Kevin Hansen second and the only other finisher. Andersson will start on pole in the final, Firmin Caddedu the only other driver to have posted two finishes.
