Marc Rheinard was running TRF415 i.e. NOT TB Evo4 as we reported earlier. He broke the front "spool" in the last round (R3). A lot of drivers used front spools instead of oneways in order to give better steering.
If Marc Rheinard can get the TQ, he would have strong chance of winning the title as he was the fastest running consistently 12.3-12.4 secs. His team mate, the current ISTC World Champion, Surikarn running TB Evo4, was only 12.6secs. Starting grid positions would be crucial in this superfast track.
The track was slower during the first qualifying due to the heat but got better and faster toward the end
