TSS Buriram Qualifying: Super Production

TSS Buriram Qualifying: Super Production

21.05.2016: Thailand Super Series at Buriram Here there was an experienced name at the top of the timesheets

Thailand Super Series at Buriram




Here there was an experienced name at the top of the timesheets in the official practice session, Khun Hideharu Kuroki, who has joined Super Compact driving a new Honda Jazz GK.


He set his marker down with a 2:02.785 and Khun Yotsarun was the one who really rose to the challenge, finishing the session just a couple of hundredths of a second shy of that time. Third quickest was Tomas Raldorf; he was six-tenths off the top.


When it came round to the afternoon qualifying session Khun Hideharu ripped four tenths out of his morning time, no one could get near his best lap of 2:02.358, which was in fact a full second quicker than anyone else could manage.


Khun Hideharu put all his expertise to good use, his new Jazz looked polished and he’s already looking quite comfortable.
 

The chasers though aren’t giving up and there is some real strength in depth this year in Super Production. That’s always the case in this most evenly matched of categories on the TSS programme, but it’s really looking like this could be the most competitive season for many years.


And there was a surprise – or not really to those who have seen her career blossoming over the last couple of years – for on the outside of the front row was Khun Nattanid Leewattanavaragul after she turned in a 2:03.303 to claim the place.


Khun Nattanid swatted the opposition aside last year to win Class C on her rookie year in Super Production with a string of wins that left her rivals trailing and now she’s stepping on the gas to chase the overall title.


 Clearly destined to go a long way expect her to be piling the pressure on Khun Hideharu tomorrow.
 

Then it gets even more youthful as the second row opens out with a 16-year-old as Khun Kmik Karnasuta planted his Honda City into P3 with a superb lap in 2:03.538, just two tenths off the front row.


He’s graduating from Super Eco to Super Production this year and has switched to Team Eakie to drive its Honda City (which was previously driven by Khun Kantadhee Kusiri) and that very zippy time gave him Class C pole.


However class positions seem almost immaterial with this youngster as clearly he’s destined to be a future Thai champion – just like his father – and so everyone instinctively benchmarks him against the overall runners. Unquestionably it was a superb way to announce his entry into this category.
 

Wrapping up Row 2 (as well as the second best time in Class B) was Khun Anusorn Asiralertsiri who will be hoping to put behind him an unrewarding last season and translate the flashes of real pace he showed into consistent podium finishes.


The third row will be led out Khun Sansuk Yotsarun who could have expected to be higher and he will be aiming to push up the leaderboard quickly when the first race goes to green lights this morning.


Alongside Khun Anusorn will be Khun Tony Percy who has been on the pace for the last couple of days and is another who endured an unrewarding 2015 and will be looking to unlock all his experience and pace this weekend.


The top ten overall was rounded out by four drivers that all have the pace to chase wins here in Buriram, Khun Thanasit Bhunyatharanonth, Khun Thomas Raldorf, Khun Anon Rodprasert and Khun Sirisak Manthugumphol. 22 cars set a time during the Super Production qualifying session.
