Saturday it was a practice day with nice temperatures for this period of the year. Most of drivers could get in touch with the track conditions and prepare their cars for the race, but the weather forecast for Sunday was very mixed, so cooler temperatures were predicted and the possibility of some small rain showers. That’s why we did some qualification runs already on Saturday evening.

Saturday evening the traditional GRATIS evening partly offered by the local club was very well appreciated…some of us went after it also at an after-party which contributed for some headache next day…but it was funny.

Sunday the day started with wet track because of the overnight rain, so the schedule was revised. We started at 11.00 with the rest of qualification and the weather was much cooler. Also the track lost all the grip and times were not repeated again. So it remained as it was on Saturday.

During the lunch break we decided to spray the track again to get some grip back…and it was the right decision.

In 1/10 Electric Touring Stock it was TQ man Arno Webernig taking the win in front of Patrik Požgaj. Third place went to Alojzij Osvald.

The 1/8 IC Track category was very interesting since beside the TQ driver Jernej, also Herfried Pucher and Nejc Mihelič (who had a lot of bad luck in qualification) had a similar pace. Jernej started well and was starting to pull some gap over Herfried, when on the straight a backmarker hit him and this ended his race after being so convincing during the whole weekend. Herfried than took the lead and in the middle of the race Nejc took the lead till the finish after some problems by Herfried.
