Fabián Yannantuoni (Fiat Tipo), for his part, is third, 340 thousandths behind Werner, while it was not a good classification for championship leader, Leonel Pernía (Ford Focus), 33rd. “The engine had difficulty starting and then gave way a lot. We don’t know if it was the booster, the battery or the injection,” he revealed. It was not a good day for José Manuel Urcera (Ford Focus) either, last in 42nd place, with no fast times.
In class 2, meanwhile, Alexander Torrisi (Nissan March) claimed the fastest series and will start from the front row in the final, accompanied by Thiago Martínez (Ford Fiesta Kinetic), his teammate at Ale Bucci Racing.

“The car has great potential in the fast sectors. We are in good shape for the race and can have a great final. Together with my teammate Mariano (Sala) we made a reassuring difference with 3rd place and we knew we wouldn’t be a nuisance,” said Torrisi, who will be looking for victory from 12:20 in a race scheduled for 16 laps or 35 minutes.
