11 September (Saturday) - Here is where the excitement begins. We have 6 qualifying run attempts in order to get the best position on the grid and get into the A-main. I managed to qualify 4th while my daughter, who just started a few months ago was in a good 15th place. Competition is tough and differences between me and my daughter were only a few tenths of a second per lap.

As a side event, Tamiya Racing Factory driver Jilles Groskamp (2009 European Touring Car Champion) made an open invitation for any challengers to race with him. My daughter readily took the challenge in her pink Tamiya M05 mini r/c car.
