Stuvik Continues Monza Domination with Another Pole


Sandy Stuvik surged to yet another pole position at Monza as he aims to clinch the 2014 EuroFormula Open championship during race two on Sunday.

The Thai driver, representing RP Motorsport, took his ninth pole position of the year by over half a second from Christopher Hoher of BVM Racing who will be on the front row of the grid for the first time this season.

Wild card driver Kevin Giovesi will start third for DAV Racing ahead of Artur Janosz, who currently sits second in the championship and needs to ensure Stuvik’s championship leader is below 54 points to make sure the title battle continues to the season finale in Barcelona in November.

Janosz led his RP Motorsport team-mates John Simonyan and Andres Saravia in qualifying, while the second BVM Racing machine of Damiano Fioravanti will start seventh.

Israeli driver Yarin Stern qualified eighth in the leading Team West-Tec F3 entry, with the team struggling for pace with all their drivers in Italy – Tanart Sathienthirakul will start twelfth, Wei Fung Thong fourteenth and Nicolas Pohler down in eighteenth.

Che-One Lim will start race two from ninth for Emilio de Villota Motorsport ahead of the leading Campos Racing machine of Konstantin Tereschenko.

Alex Palou, also mathematically still in the championship hunt will start thirteenth for Campos Racing after a disastrous qualifying session, and will need a miracle now to win the title in his first year in single seater car racing.
