Hockenheim-ring GERMANY 27th August 2022: Qualification continues on the second day of the NitrOlympX weekend. The European weather wasn’t at its best (with rain clouds over the track the whole day), but the sun started to get through the clouds in the afternoon, and the first three-second run is a fact! Swiss driver Jndia Erbacher pushed her dragster to a 3.892 second run at 482 km/hrs. All categories completed their four qualification rounds, and the first eliminations already started for the Pro ET and Super Pro ET classes.
Jndia Erbacher is the absolute winner on the second day of the NitrOlympX weekend. After struggling to keep the car straight yesterday, the Swiss driver found the right combination to position herself in the number one spot during the third qualification round. She tried to improve her time in Q4 but crossed the finish line in 4.04 seconds at 458 km/hrs. Jndia will have a buy run during the first elimination run. Ida Zetterström, who qualified in first place yesterday, did not run today (last went at expensive of her engine). Her 4.286-second run from yesterday is good enough for the number two spot. She will compete against Susanne Calin in the first elimination round. Dennis Nilsson (qualified in the fifth position) is now third and will meet Antti Horto during the first elimination round.
