Friday Heat Races: Serravalle on a roll
There is a massive run of heat races on Friday, including twelve in Mini-ROK alone.
Antonio Serravalle enjoyed a great day winning two heat races and finishing eighth in his third. This should give him a great starting position for tomorrows PreFinal.
Defrancesco managed to keep up at the front, scoring two sixths and a fourth. He too should be in a great position for Saturdays PreFinal.
A pair for top-ten results for Remo Ruscitti have him as the highest ranked Canadian in Super-ROK, however a DNF in heat two scored him a maximum 35 points and means he will have some work to do in the PreFinal to make the main.
Jordan Redlin improved all day long, finishing 28th in heat 1, 26th in heat 2 and closed out the day with a 17th. Jordan will need another strong run in the Prefinal to make the Final.
However for Don McGregor and Chris Eagles their days were full of struggles. Both drivers will be on the brink of even making the PreFinals on Saturday.
For both the Mini-ROK and Super-ROK classes, the top-68 drivers will be split into two PreFinals (odds and evens) where the top-17 from each PreFinal will advance to the ROK Finals.
Thursday Qualifying: Defrancesco and Serravalle in the top-ten
The Mini-ROK division needed to be split into four groups for Qualifying with a massive 101 entries! However a big margin in the times from group to group meant that the 101% rule was put into effect.
This meant that Lachlan DeFrancesco wound up eighth overall after being second in his group and Antonio Serravalle was tenth, the third highest in his group.
In Super-Rok our Canadians weren’t as successful. Remo Ruscitti was the highest ranked Canadian, 32nd overall. Jordan Redlin was 45th and Don McGregor further back in 57th. Still struggling for speed, Chris Eagles closed out the Qualifying order in 71st and can only go up from here.
