WestCoast Racing qualified 14th and 19th respectively at Lausitzring. Martin Öhlin did a 1:45.00 good enough for 14th place in first qualifying, while Fredrik Lestrup did a 1:44.70 which was 19th in the second qualifying.

Martin was quite pleased after his first qualifying at the technically tricky Lausitzring but was not happy with his position.
”I think I did a pretty good qualifying but it’s hard to be happy with the position,” Martin said. ”I’m actually pretty pleased with my driving, it would have been possible to improve with a few tenths more on the lap but it wouldn’t have made a huge difference in the position. We knew it would be challenging here and we start further back than we would have liked. It looks like we have a good racepace though so it’s not impossible to score some points from 14th tomorrow if we do a good race and fast pit stop.”

Fredrik Lestrup had similar feelings after his qualifying where he drove several fast laps but had to see a few other teams improve compared to the first qualifying.
”It’s difficult to say you are pleased after you have qualified 19th,” Fredrik said. ”I do feel my driving was very good and that I managed to get the speed we had out of the car. But we are too far behind and we will have two challenging races now. Racewise we seem to have quite good pace compared to qualifying so there is still a chance to score points if we do two really good races.”
