"We are not where we were hoping to be after the session today," said Heylen. "I drove hard today but unfortunately I just wasn't able to put a fast lap together for various reasons. It was a very eventful qualifying and I feel that we could have gone faster but everyone faced the challenges of the stop and go pace. Tomorrow is going to be a tough race physically so I just have to focus on preparing myself for the event and make the best of my qualifying. I know we will have a good result if we can finish the race so we'll work on getting through the first few laps."

Eric Bachelart Quote

"After our morning practice results where Jan placed eighth quickest, we thought we had a pretty good car," said Eric Bachelart, Conquest Racing Team Owner. "We are obviously a bit disappointed with today's qualifying but it seems there is always a lot going on during the race on Sunday. We are shooting to finish our first race of the year tomorrow and stay out of trouble. If we manage to do that, we should end up with a good result."
