Free Practice in Nogaro
A pair of free practices opened the racing weekend at the Nogaro track last afternoon. Both featured the full Buggyra couple David Vršecký and Uwe Nittel.
The free practice, normally serving to better acquaintance of the drivers with the race track, was strongly affected by the current climatic condition this time. The opening practice was terminated by a wave of the red flag after about five minutes because of a heavy downpour. At the moment of the interruption David Vršecký ranked third and Uwe Nittel fifth. The second free practice was marked by slow drying of the road, which caused that many truckers continuously accelerated. David and Uwe primarily concentrated on obtaining the needed telemetric data and eventually ranked fifth and ninth, respectively.
