Azcona pips Tassi and Files in WTCR Qualifying in Hungary

07.07.2018: After being the last driver to make the cut for Q2, Mikel Azcona secured his first pole position with a last gasp lap on the drying track.

After being the last driver to make the cut for Q2, Mikel Azcona secured his first pole position with a last gasp lap on the drying track.



A perfect strategy from PCR Sport meant that the young Spaniard waited until the final moments in Q2, when the racing line were dryer, to mount two slick tyres at the front and set the fastest lap of 2:05.652.



Thus, he pipped Tassi (2:06.105) and Files (2:06.393) who seemed to have locked the front row of the grid for Race 1. Target Competition colleagues Dušan Borković and Reece Barr qualified fourth and fifth respectively, with the Irish making up from a disappointing day of Practice and claiming his best Qualifying result so far.



Zengő Motorsport’s TCR returnee Ferenc Ficza put in a brilliant effort to place his Cupra DSG in sixth position, ahead of his fellow countryman Dániel Nagy who had been fastest in Q1.



Francisco Abreu qualified eighth despite having his fastest lap disallowed for a track limit infringement, while Julien Briché and Francisco Mora rounded off the top ten and secured the front row on the reverse grid for tomorrow’s Race 2; Mora will be on pole.



It was a disappointing session for Kris Richard - the first to miss the cut for Q2 by 48 thousandths of a second only -, Jean-Karl Vernay and Stefano Comini who were also eliminated after Q1.



 The Frenchman had a quick lap disallowed for a track limit infringement, was called back to the pits by his team and rejoined when it was too late, while Comini's car suffered from a gearbox issue.
