Nikolay Karamyshev on top in first test at Pergusa

TC2T championship leader Nikolay Karamsyshev was fastest in the first test session at Pergusa. The Russian driver was 1.1 seconds clear of Petr Fulín, in the normally aspirated BMW 320si, the fastest of the TC2 class drivers, with Karamyshev’s closest title competitor Mat’o Homola third.

Norbert Nagy was fastest of the Single-Make Trophy drivers, fourth overall in his MGS Racing-run SEAT León Supercopa. The Hungarian started the season with a Chevrolet Cruze LT in the TC2 class, but for the final meeting has made the switch back to the SEAT León with which he competed last year.

Karamyshev’s Campos Racing team-mate Igor Skuz was fifth quickest, the Ukrainian also has an outside chance of winning the TC2T class title due to the double points on offer this weekend.

In the hotly contested S1600 class, Ulrike Krafft was fastest in her Ravenol Team Ford Fiesta, 19th overall, just six-tenths of a second faster than class points leader Gilles Bruckner.

The second test session takes place at 11:25 CET.
