Brutal Fish Racing Team’s Jack Young admitted he ‘can’t complain’ after claiming his maiden pole position in the TCR Europe series.
Young had traded fastest times with ComToYou Racing’s Tom Coronel late on in the second section of qualifying and managed to snatch pole position away from the Dutch driver on his final run.
After grabbing back pole. Young admitted he was delighted to start race one from first on the grid.
“That was very good,” said Young.
“I didn’t think we had it at the end, the team was on the radio saying that Tom had gone quicker and so it was ‘go, go, go’ and I just managed to pull it out of the bag this time.
The Northern Irish driver also explained how he reacted when finding out rival Coronel had gone quicker than him in the dying seconds of the session.
“P1 will be good for the race so we’ll see what happens, hopefully it’ll all go well,” added the Honda Civic driver.
“I thought my first lap would be good enough for pole and so we would have another set (of tyres) for the race but then I heard from the team that Tom had gone quicker and so I thought ‘oh no, here we go’.
“I can’t complain – all the hard work the team has put in, especially after the disappointment in France, so to come back like this is very good. I think the race will be a bit messy as it’s so tight here and the banks are like NASCAR, but I really like this track and so I’ll be pushing for sure.”
Race one of the weekend in the Netherlands takes place at 17:20 CEST (16:20 BST).
