Johan Halvosen will lead the field away for tomorrow's Dutch V-Prix having beaten Carson Davenport to pole position by just 0.003 of a second in a very wet qualifying session at Assen. Meanwhile, the highest DS of Olen Inman lines up a lowly 16th after a shocking session.
While there have been closer margins for pole, all 26 cars were within one second, the tightest field spread ever seen in Formula Virtual.
Pole position changed hands no fewer than thirteen times, but in the end it was Halvosen who stuck his Meteor at the front of the grid for the second race running. Carson Davenport will line up alongside while home favourite Beyer just missed out in third place ahead of Puccio Giodano in a surprise fourth for Ocelot. Karl Beckenbauer improved the teams mood further with ninth, their highest ever joint starting positions.
Towards the back of the grid it was a disaster for championship leaders DS Mathershaw, as Inman and Adrien Simon could only manage 16th and 24th respectively, the latter suffering technical glitches throughout the session.
The latest forecasts predict a dry race - providing plenty of chance for DS to show their speed and come through the field - but either way, a mixed-up grid sets us up for a cracker!
