Hahn Nets Eighth Pole of 2019

31 August 2019

Despite the best efforts of local ace Adam Lacko, championship leader Jochen Hahn clinched yet another pole at Most....

Jochen Hahn, aboard his Team Hahn Racing IVECO, went fastest of all once again in Super Pole to grab his eighth pole out of nine attempts so far this season.

His closest competitor, local ace Adam Lacko made the most of his Buggyra Racing package but ultimately went 0.077s slower than reigning champion Hahn. The Czech will line up alongside five time champion and is the only non-German driver in the top four.

The second row of the grid will be shared by IVECOs of Steffi Halm and Ander Kursim run by Team Schwabentruck and Don’t Touch Racing racers respectively.

Fifth went to Antonio Albacete who was the pace-setter in the warm-up session but on this occasion was 0.5s off Hahn’s time and unable to challenge for top spot.

Sascha Lenz will partner Albacete on row three of the grid in his SL Trucksport 30 MAN, with Norbert Kiss and José Rodrigues forming the following row of the grid.

The top ten was rounded out by Lion Truck Racing's Anthony Janiec and GRAMMER TRUCK CUP pole-sitter Luis Recuecno who made it into the Super Poles session despite having his fastest lap time in Timed Practice cancelled due to touching penalty markers on two different occasions.
