Mat’o Homola took his DG Sport Competition Opel Astra to pole position for tomorrow’s TCR International Race 1 at Chang International Circuit in Buriram,Thailand by a mere .004s of a second over rival James Nash. “Thanks to my team – we had a problem in Q1 and they repaired it quickly to enable me to go through to Q2. In Q2 there was a red flag and there was chaos but I managed to do one good lap and it was enough, so I’m really glad for that. I like this circuit and the car is behaving how I want it to. Everything is okay and so I’m really happy. I know the biggest part of the points comes in the races, not Qualifying, so I’m not really over the moon right now because I know this is just one part of my job and the second comes tomorrow,” said pole sitter Homola.
M1RA’s owner/driver Norbert Michelisz will start third after placing a fastest lap of 1:43.228. JK Vernay will start fourth with a second M1RA Honda for Attila Tassi coming fifth.
