Qualifying day two at the Hockenheimring rained out


There was no racing in the FIA European Drag Racing Championship classes on day two of qualifying for the NitrOlympX at the Hockenheimring, Germany. Twice the Top Methanol Dragsters were ready to start their third qualifying session, when it started to rain again and the cars had to go back to the pits.

At 6 PM it was still raining and the race director cancelled qualifying. So Friday leaders Stig Neergaard (Top Fuel), Ari Pietilä (Top Methanol Funny Car), Timo Habermann (Top Methanol Dragster), Michael Gullqvist (Pro Modified) and Jimmy Alund (Pro Stock) will lead their respective categories into Sunday’s eliminations at the Hockenheimring, round four of the FIA European Drag Racing Championship.

Eliminations for the NitrOlympX at the Rico Anthes Quartermile of the Hockenheimring will start tomorrow morning, August 21 at 9 AM.
