Setting an incredible two-minute lap time, Norbert Kiss has taken his tenth pole position of the season at the final race in Misano. 

Back on dominant form, no one looked like they could get close to Kiss throughout the 20 minutes of qualifying or the ten minutes of Super Pole as the Hungarian drove around the Misano Circuit with incredible pace. His 2:00.985 was half a second up on second place starter Sascha Lenz, who narrowly took second from Jochen Hahn. Only 0.002 split the second and third duo at the chequered flag. 

For the silver trophy in the FIA European Truck Racing Championship, Lenz still holds an advantage over third-placed Adam Lacko, leading the Czech driver by 16 points. However, the fight is still on as Lacko will start directly behind Lenz in fourth and a maximum of 30 points still have to be claimed. 

Antonio Albacete rounded off the top five 1.3 seconds off Kiss’ pace. 

Another amazing performance from Lukas Hahn saw the German take pole position in the Goodyear Cup, sixth on the overall grid. This is the second Goodyear Cup Pole Position Hahn has secured this weekend, putting on a great display of speed at the season finale. 

Stephanie Halm and René Reinert split Hahn from the Goodyear Cup championship rivals Téo Calvet and Shane Brereton. Calvet starts ahead, but he needs Brereton to have a turbulent race if he wants a chance to take the title from the Brit. With only six Chrome drivers taking part in this weekend’s racing, Brereton only has to finish the race and be classified to take the Goodyear Cup with one race to go.

Battles continue up and down the grid, so Race 3 at Misano is going to be something you don’t want to miss.
