Eurocup Clio

To take pole in the Clio Eurocup a driver has to know how to use slipstreaming and to cooperate with his team-mates. The Milan Competition Team applied this strategy to the letter, and Marc Guillot immediately went quickest from his team-mates, Thibault Bossy and Nicolas Milan. Jordi Palomeras managed to split the Milan drivers by taking provisional third.

Milan Competition wasn’t having any and Guillot went even faster in 2m 31.846s, while Nicolas Milan moved up to second giving the Milan Competition cars the first three places in the order: Guillot, Milan and Bossy.

Milan set pole half way through the session with a lap in 2m 31.763s, and Yoann Baziret made it four Frenchmen in the first four behind the Milan Competition Clios. Guillot, Milan and Bossy pitted to await developments.

Robert Van den Berg (Harders Plaza racing) and Mike Verschuur (Equipe Verschuur) waited till the latter stages to set a time: Verschuur went fifth-quickest and Van den Berg sixth.

The second quickest time determines the grid order for the second race, and the Milan Competition drivers were well placed to monopolize the first three positions with Guillot in front of Milan and Bossy.

At the very end of the session Milan and his drivers went out to improve their times. Nicolas improved again in 2m 31.364s giving him two pole positions this weekend, his third and fourth of the season. Massimiliano Pedala (Ragnoni Motorsport) who shone in the collective test took fourth place from Salvatore Acarese (Rangoni Motorsport) and Philippe Maurin (Duprey Competition). Mike Vershuur had a bad session and qualified in ninth spot for each of the two races.
