After two sessions of qualifying, it was Mat’o Homola that landed on top for race 1 with a time of 1:25.481, just .071 seconds ahead of Dusan Borkovic. “I have always had good results here in Salzburgring, so I know this track suits me and I like the fast corners. From the beginning, we had some minor problems in every session but we changed some things for Qualifying and the car behaved really well. We were guessing at some of the set-up things, but you can see that they worked. It’s one thing to win Qualifying, but you get more points in the races so that’s what I have to concentrate on. I don’t know how to measure the risks I took, but I know I wasn’t 100% in Turn 9. One mistake can ruin your whole weekend and I know I need the points” said the pole-sitting Homola. Pepe Oriola and his Craft-Bamboo SEAT will start third with Attila Tassi fourth and Thomas Jager’s Team Kissling Motorsports Opel rounding out the top five.
