Baptista storms to pole for second Spielberg race

by Gruz David


RP Motorsport’s Vitor Baptista topped Sunday’s EF Open qualifying at Spielberg to take his second pole of the weekend.

Although it was Yu Kanamaru?who was in the lead when the clock ticked down,?two late flyers from Baptista and Yarin Stern demoted him to third.

Baptista ended up only seven thousandths clear?of Stern, while Kanamaru was fortunate to remain in?third as Tanart Sathienthirakul ended up only 0.002s behind the Japanese driver.

Konstantin Tereshchenko, who has a lead of 23 points over Baptista in the standings, is set to start fifth alongside RP’s Damiano Fioravanti.

Mexican Diego Menchaca and Guatemalan Andres Saravia took seventh and eighth respectively as the top ten was completed by yesterday’s winner Leonardo Pulcini and Antoni Ptak.
