Matrix Modified

Coelho is top qualifier in the Netherlands

Bruno Coelho will start from the pole position into the triple A-Mains of the Matrix Modified class at ETS RD3 on Sunday. The Xray factory driver won the last round of qualifying in front of Mugen Seiki`s Ronald Völker and Yokomo`s Yannic Prümper. Alexander Hagberg (Xray) will line up fourth on the grid after making a mistake in lap 19 while running in second. Awesomatix driver Marc Rheinard will attack from the fifth position!

Top qualifier Bruno Coelho had the following to say about his day and the upcoming finals:

It is great to start on pole here in Apeldoorn. But as the gap to the others was always very small, I expect difficult finals to be honest. On this track the first 3-4 laps are very important and not easy as you can win or loose everything. I will focus on having a good start and when the cars behind me also fighting for positions it maybe will help me to build up a gap to them.   

Bruno Coelho, Xray/Hobbywing

We also talked with second qualifier Ronald Völker after Q4:

After Q3 I thought that I maybe might lose my second position to Alex in the last round of qualifying. But luck was on my side and I am still second on the grid. For tomorrow I will try to get my car on point as it will be important to build up as much pressure as possible directly after the start!
