Our friends over at Neo Buggy continue their coverage of the Euro B... "Qualifying day at the 2012 Euro B witnessed an ever changing track, going from damp and muddy in the morning to a drying one with ruts and bumps developing and the rockey underlay coming up, towards Q4 the racing line is dry with the sawdust mixed mud/dirt pushed to the sides. Q1 and Swiss Kyosho driver Jeremy Pittet was in there immediately, going 9 laps in that round. Q2 and up stepped Italian Mugen driver Alessandro Magi, he TQ'd two rounds on the trot with Pittet tangling in traffic, 2nd and 3rd went to Swedes Johansson & Ekenstierna; the latter unable to recapture his Q2 form in the next two rounds and ending up 18th overall with everything still up to play for.
Last year's 4th place Brit Tony Truman just missed out on the top 16 and starts on pole for the quarters. Q3 and Pittet hit back, but Magi had that little extra - 0.8 secs... Q3 saw the rise of fellow Italian Alessandro Stocco, the XRAY driver finding pace that had eluded him the previous two rounds notching up a third and going onto better things in Q4. Heading into the decider, it looked like Pittet had done enough with a solitary 9 lap run with 3 heats to go, that was until the sensational Stocco stepped up and secured the TQ in Q4 handing his countryman Magi overall TQ for the event."
