2014 – Rotax Grand Finals : Wednesday

26 November 2014

Today was the qualifying day. At this level, every little mistake on the set-ups, tire pressure or on the track can put the driver far back in the results as the times are very close.

Just to give you an example, in the MAX class today, there was exactly 1 tenth of a second difference between the 3rd and 11th position!

Team Canada place 2 drivers in the top ten in the DD2 class and one in the MAX and DD2 class. Results seem more difficult in Junior and Senior but time wise, good heat races can repair everything.

Here the Canadian qualifying results with the pole sitter:

 Junior MAX

1. Baciuska, Rokas Lithuania, 58.631
