Ryfa in Qualifying

Swedish pilot Daniel Ryfa blasted past his rivals in Qualifying and set the fastest time once again, even with a one second penalty.

Ryfa looked to be on for the track record in his Qualifying run until the penultimate gate where he was penalised for an incorrect VTM, but he was still able to cling to the top place with a time of 1:03.761.

Dario Costa came closest to Ryfa, posting a time that was 0.389s slower than the Swede. Daniel Genevey, who has improved with every run, was third.

Patrick Davidson, who is competing in only his second race, was fourth with a time of 1:05.131. He is improving with every run in the track.

The two pilots racing at home for the first time, Melanie Astles and Baptiste Vignes finished fifth and six. Both have not raced since last season and will be looking to improve in front of friends and family in tomorrow's race.
