Mat’o Homola not looking at the points table after Zolder class pole

Single-Make Trophy class pole-sitter Mat’o Homola says he’s not watching the points table, as the Slovakian closed up by one point to title rival Dusan Borkovic after taking his second consecutive class pole of 2015.

Homola will start second on the grid behind the Engstler BMW of Davit Kajaia, after the 21-year-old put in a time just 0.033 seconds slower than Borkovic before the rain started to fall.

“I really felt comfortable in the dry conditions,” explained Homola to TouringCarTimes. “I wanted to be on pole and I’d have liked to have qualified in first place, but I was slowed down by (Ibrahim) Okyay in the last sector and lost a lot of time, but I’m pleased it’s like it is, as the gaps between me, Borkovic, Fulín and Kajaia are really close.”

Homola will start ahead of the three SEATs of Dusan Borkovic, Petr Fulín and Ronny Jost, with Andreas Pfister starting out of position in 17th after failing to set a time before the rain fell.

“Behind me are all the SEATs, so we will see in the races. I will try to overtake Kajaia somewhere to score a win and as many points as possible,” he added.

Homola has now reduced Borkovic’s lead to 21 points with 66 still to play for in the remaining four races, but isn’t letting this play on his mind.

“I’m not looking at the points. I just want to do the best I can. I’m not calculating, I’m just driving as fast as I can and that’s all.”
