[TMS]M.tunç - WARNING for joining the track in race without qualifying.
*note: as per rules only drivers from championship standings top 10 may start the race without qualifying!
First round of 2016 VERL is complete and the round was rather dominated by A.Wiśniewski,who led practically from green to chequered,finishing with a solid 20+ seconds gap without actual worries about win. But 2nd place was not decided until final lap,where N.Morvai tried to regain his 2nd position,lost due own mistake in last quarted of the race. But Mishu was able to keep the position and finished 2nd,N.Morvai was 3rd with less then 1 tenth of a second difference.

After round 1 is hard to predict any situations for series,but at least we can see few favourites for this season. A.Wiśniewski's 5 point gap over Mishu can be just start of pullaway or maybe situation may change during remaining rounds. Due to fact that top4 finishers are VERL rookies,the situation for rookie award is the same as for main championship.
In Teams Championship Vires has more then a double lead over 3 closest rivals. But at least Nation's Cup standings are mixed up with 4 countries within 5 points gap - Portugal leads over Latvia, Bulgaria and Hungary.
With first championship impressions VERL will continue racing after 2 weeks break at Aston in 11th september. With 4 rounds still to come,theoretically anyone is still eligible for any championship glory - with good pace even newcomer,who missed out round one,so don't miss the opportunity to join V8 Racing League!
