Esteban Guerrieri will start the reverse-grid Race 2 at WTCR Race of Netherlands from the DHL Pole Position at Zandvoort.

The ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport driver was P10 in the second part of qualifying, ensuring his Honda Civic Type R TCR will start from the top spot.

“It’s important but bitter-sweet with [team-mate] Néstor [Girolami] missing out. It was close, but in the end P10 was the best we could do and profit from the reverse grid, so a bit of luck on my side this time. I’ll just try to make good use of it.”

He will be joined on the front row by SLR Volkswagen’s Benjamin Leuchter, who was ninth fastest in the session in his Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR.

Fellow SLR Volkswagen driver and World Rallycross Champion Johan Kristoffersson will line up on row two, alongside local hero Nicky Catsburg of BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Racing Team.

Race 2 of WTCR Race of Netherlands is scheduled to start at 13h15 local time.
