Two times pole position for reigning champion
Stuttgart. During the qualifying session for round one of the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup in Bahrain, Jeroen Bleekemolen (Netherlands) posted the top time in just his third timed lap. And with his second quickest qualifying time, which determines the starting place for race two on Sunday, the 27-year-old reigning champion snatched position one. With this, the Konrad Motorsport pilot has the best chances to bring home maximum points from both races of the season-opener and again assert himself at the top of the points’ table.
