Brazilian Stock Cars: Galid Osman’s first pole-position

Marcos Gomes got in the way preventing the Ipiranga-RC team of making 1-2 in the qualifying session. Max Wilson and Rubens Barrichello closed the top-5.

Four podium finishes and a victory were already on Galid Osman’s portfolio racing Stock Cars. There was a pole position missing. Well, there isn’t anymore. The Ipiranga-RC driver was the fastest among 31 competitors on the 3,695km Curitiba track and took his first career pole position.

"I already had won and the only thing missing was the pole position. My qualifying results used to be a little lower than in the races, so the target was to fix it. This pole came after lots of training, hard work, study and dedication", said Galid Osman, who made a 1min18s272 on his best lap, only seven thousandths of a second ahead of Marcos Gomes, who stood between Galid and his teammate Thiago Camilo.

The qualifying session were split in groups of four drivers and Galid managed to make the fastest lap on group four, and the rest of the session for him was pure agony watching 16 drivers trying to beat his laptime. "To stand inside the garage watching is worse than in the car. I hope the next qualifying sessions we can be in one of the last groups to reduce this anxiety", he told.

25 of the 31 drivers were within one second. Max Wilson, Rubens Barrichello, Daniel Serra, Felipe Fraga, Átila Abreu, series leader Cacá Bueno and Lucas Foresti close the top-10 grid spots for race 1, which starts at 1:05 pm this Sunday. Race 2, with a 10-place-grid inversion, starts at 2:20 pm.
