Harrison Scott secured his fifth EuroFormula Open pole position of the season on Sunday, denying Nikita Troitskiy by just 0.078 seconds at the Hungaroring.
The RP Motorsport driver had his worst result of the season during Saturday’s opener, claiming only ninth after starting fourteenth due to losing his best time due to track limit offences, but this time he had no issues and took pole with a best time of 1:36.130s.
Troitskiy, who has two pole positions to his name so far in 2017 himself, ended up second with a 1:36.208s for Drivex School, while Devlin De Francesco, who started last on Saturday thanks to more track limit issues, will be much happier on Sunday to qualify third for Carlin.
Another driver who will be happy will be Eliseo Martinez Merono, who will start an excellent fourth for Teo Martin Motorsport, just ahead of Raoul Hyman, who could not add race two pole to the one he earned on Saturday, but the South African was able to out-qualify Campos Racing team-mates Simo Laaksonen and Thiago Vivacqua, the drivers who finished second and first respectively on Saturday.
Alex Karkosik will start eighth for RP Motorsport ahead of a disappointed Ameya Vaidyanathan of Carlin, while Petru Florescu of Fortec Motorsports completes the top ten.
