Wiecek tops Bikernieki qualification

As the sun set through the trees at the picturesque circuit here in Riga, it would be our reigning DMEC champion, Piotr Wiecek, emerging triumphant and taking first place in Qualifying, putting in a blistering performance that scored him a formidable 98 points with one of the best runs we have ever seen on this circuit. Wiecek’s fearless driving style and pinpoint precision meant there would be no topping his best attempt.

Hot on Wiecek’s tracks, Irish driver Conor Shanahan certainly made his presence known. A score of 94 points on his second run showcased the younger Shanahan brother’s exceptional skills, reinforcing why he is our current championship points leader.

But the action didn’t stop there. The up-and-coming Estonian young gun Kevin Pesur secured a very worthy third place with 93 points. Becoming increasingly known for his aggressive yet controlled style, Pesur’s performance underscored why he’s making quite the name for himself during his first year on the DMEC driver grid.

The thrill of today’s Round 4 Qualifying session only serves to heighten anticipation for the Top 32 battles, which kick off tomorrow at 2:00pm local Latvian time, when our amazing DMEC fans worldwide can tune in live exclusively on Red Bull TV to catch every moment of our Riga Baby showdown.

Don’t forget though, the journey doesn’t end in Latvia. The championship heads next to Germany’s Ferropolis for Round 5 from August 17th to 19th. With the end in sight, we’re firmly on the “Road to the Finale” at Poland’s PGE Narodowy on September 15th & 16th, where the season’s champion will be crowned.

Just before we head to our Top 32 battles, check out today’s overall Top 32 Qualifying results and tomorrow’s Top 32 battle bracket below to build up those excitement levels before the action gets back underway tomorrow here in Riga.
