Coronel and Files on pole for the two Nürburgring races

Following the earlier announcement that this morning’s Qualifying session had been cancelled due to thick fog, the TCR Europe Stewards have now released a decision about the formation of the grids for this weekend’s two races at the Nürburgring.


The decision confirms that “…due to exceptional circumstances, the grid for Race 1 is determined by the Classification ‘Free Practice best times’ which obtains the best time by each driver in Free Practice 1 or Free Practice 2. The grid for Race 2 is then determined by using the same principle as for Race 1, but reversing position 1-10.”


The decision means Tom Coronel will be on pole for Race 1 with Nicola Baldan alongside him on the front row of the grid. Josh Files will start tomorrow’s Race 2 from pole position with Mat’o Homola sharing the front row. The current leader of the Drivers’ Championship, Franco Girolami, will start Race 1 from P4 and Race 2 from P7. No Qualifying points will be awarded.


Depending on the weather, Race 1 is scheduled to start at 17.00 CEST this afternoon and will be streamed live on the TCR Europe social media pages and via the TCR Portal
