Reigning TCR Germany champion Harald Proczyk claimed a second consecutive pole position at Autodrom Most.
The Austrian driver and his HP Racing Hyundai i30 N set the fastest lap of the day seconds before the chequered flag was waved; he was clocked at 1:39.969 and demoted Mike Halder to second.
In Q1, Proczyk’s teammate Lukas Niedertscheider topped the timesheet with a lap 1:40.306 that was only four thousandths of a second faster than Dominik Fugel’s 1:40.310. Max Hesse, Proczyk, Antti Buri and Halder filled the position from third to sixth, while Jessica Bäckman set a brilliant seventh fastest lap on her guest appearance in the series. The second lady driver, Michelle Halder, was also able to make the cut for Q2 in 12th position.
In Q2, Mike Halder posted a provisional fastest time of 1:40.049 on his first lap out and remained on top of the timesheet until Proczyk’s last effort in the session’s dying seconds. Hesse qualified in third position and will share the second row of the grid for Race 1 with Julien Apothéloz, while Dominik Fugel and Théo Coicaud will start from fifth and sixth.
The pole position for Sunday’s Race 2 was won by Burns Bradley in the Pyro Motorsport Honda Civic, who qualified 10th.
