Kanamaru grabs last gasp pole at wet Monza

1 Mins read

Yu Kanamaru snatched a last-gasp pole position for the opening race of the EuroFormula Open weekend at a wet Autodromo Nazionale Monza on Saturday.

Although no rain feel throughout the session, it was still wet enough throughout the thirty minutes for drivers to stick to rain tyres, and it was Kanamaru who stuck his Emilio de Villota Motorsport machine on pole, denying championship leader Vitor Baptista.

Baptista had looked set to take his sixth pole position of the season for RP Motorsport, but saw his 2m02.178s lap usurped by Kanamaru’s 2m02.092s as the chequered flag fell.

Konstantin Tereschenko, currently sitting second in the championship behind Baptista by just four points, will start the opening race of the weekend in Italy from third on the grid for Campos Racing, with RP Motorsports’ Damiano Fioravanti fourth.

Diego Menchaca was fifth for Campos Racing ahead of the leading Team West-Tec F3 entry of Tanart Sathienthirakul, with Alessio Rovera of DAV Racing seventh ahead of Yarin Stern of Team West-Tec F3.

Leonardo Pulcini of DAV Racing will start ninth, with Kantadhee Kusiri completing the top ten for MKTG.

There was disappointment however for Andres Saravia, with the Guatemalan driver joining the session late only to see his RP Motorsport machine grind to a halt at the Curva Grande on his out lap.
