Eurocup Mégane Trophy

Saturday’s poleman and race-winner Mirko Bortolotti (Oregon Team) maintained his superb form at Motorland Aragon by going fastest again in Eurocup Megane Trophy qualifying on a rainy Sunday morning. And once again the Italian led the way from team-mates Kevin Gilardoni and Kelvin Snoeks in another Oregon Team one-two-three.

Steven Palette (Team Lompech Sport) was the first to show on a soaking wet track. Despite the treacherous conditions, the drivers managed to up their pace as the session progressed, with Kevin Gilardoni and Mirko Bortolotti joining the Frenchman in the fight for pole.

It was a fight won by Mirko Bortolotti four minutes from the end, the Italian pulling out a lap time that would not be beaten and heading the grid for the second day in a row from Kevin Gilardoni, Kelvin Snoeks, Mike Verschuur (McGregor by Equipe Verschuur) and Steven Palette.

“This was my first qualification session in the rain,” said the polesitter. “I don’t have a lot of experience on these tyres, though we went out with them in Friday’s testing. The car went well and I’m pleased with my performance. I was worried about having problems, like a red flag or making a mistake but everything went well. I’m delighted with the work the team has done to make this result possible, and we’re now going to focus on the race so we can follow up this pole position.”

Sunday’s Eurocup Megane Trophy race at Motorland Aragon will start at 12:45.
